For the überhealthy among us the unusually healthy BioMarkt supermarket combines two seemingly contradictory features: an enormity of choice and extremely high quality standards.
All the colorful fruits and vegetables displayed on the numerous shelves and stands are organically grown without chemical interference. The processed produce for sale has little to no preservative or coloring agents added, and both meat and dairy come from farms that ensure good treatment of animals. Even the wine has to be made from bio-dynamic grapes if it is to be sold here.
Though there are many organic shops in Amsterdam, this one offers the most choice, with prices that are not as ridiculously high as elsewhere. And for those who are a little confused about what to do with some of the exotic vegetables or fruits on display, the BioMarkt’s website offers helpful recipes.
