Organic stores have come a long way in Chennai, what were once few are now plenty, so we’ve picked the top three that we liked shopping at. All three have their own online stores and offer home delivery too.
From Organic Mangoes To Almond Rose Soap, Check Out These Organic Stores In Town
Initially a store that supplied organic fruits and vegetables, Vaer has now grown to an organic lifestyle store. They stock groceries, fruits, and vegetables in addition to a sizable section for personal care and home use products (like non-toxic mosquito repellents and organic eucalyptus oil). We like Vaer for the constant supply of fresh fruits and veggies it has, which they credit to a strong relationship with the farmers themselves.
Dhanyam Organic Store
With seven stores across Chennai, Dhanyam is the biggest entry on this list. They specialise in organic fruits, vegetables, and groceries but also stock organic gourmet foods, organic beverages, preserves and snacks, and organic personal care products. Some of the products we’ve liked are their dark chia seeds, amla juice, chamomile tea, creamy peanut butter, aloe vera gels and almond rose soap. The staff are super helpful too and are happy to source specific products you may be searching for.
The priciest place on the list is little more than a seller of organic fruits and vegetables, as the name suggests, they’re into fine foods. Gormei Market sources fresh organic fruits and vegetables at regular intervals and now that its summer, we highly recommend buying mangoes here. They’re juicy all year! They also source specialty foods like gluten-free pasta and vegan snacks. We like Gormei Market for when we’re looking to cook an entire meal as it’s a one-stop-shop for hard-to-find ingredients.
