Where do you get organic veggies?

9 posts in this topic

Hi, everyone.

I moved back from Silicon Valley and settled in Hangzhou this Aug. I am a happy vegan and love vegan cooking and baking. It took me a while to figure out multiple channels to source all the organic grains and beans. This really makes me miss Wholefoods :( I have yet to find a reliable supply for organic vegetables on reasonable quality and prices. Does anyone face the same problem?

Thanks!

Well, the fieldchina link I posted is quite respectable I guess.

Thanks san5324 for the information! I looked at fieldchina.com. Like it's wide range of imported products. For organic vegetables, the retail items seem to be available only in Shanghai and Nanjing. Perhaps they deliver to Hangzhou if one subscribes.

Good luck with it. 

Thanks! I find Fieldchina's subscription is on the pricy side, with CNY 325/week. I am going to look for alternative subscription plans from Hangzhou.

Sigh, I can only understand that frustration so well. But I am also kind of optimistic. I have been noticing that organic farming projects, even Permaculture projects are emerging in many places, especially along the most economically developed coastal area. If you can read Chinese, take a look at two articles about two organic farming projects in Nanjing: http://www.timefarm.com.cn/technical.phphttp://www.yogeev.com/article/61011.html

Hi. Welcome to Hangzhou.

Lots of big supermarkets sell organic vegetables. City life, Century Mart, Vanguard......They are packed in boxes already with a big Organic written on the box. You cannot miss it. Just walk over to the vegetable section

    • Hi, I've just started as a tutor in Hangzhou and will be here for the next 6 months. I've never been anywhere beyond Europe before and don't really know anyone here so I'm looking to make new friends. I've just graduated from Cambridge Univerisity and I enjoy going out, socialising and meeting new people. I also have extremely bad taste in music.  Feel free to Private message for my wechat.  
    •   Hi, Im Luke, im from England and a native English speaker. I used to live in Spain so also fluent in Spanish. So I can offer English or Spanish tutoring.  I have two years previous experience teaching English as a foreign language to both children, teenagers and adults.  I currently don't have any tutoring so I am therefore free during all afternoons/evenings throughout the week.  If you would like me to teach you or your children, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    • Hello everyone, My name is yang. I am from Canada but chinese by nationality. My college starts next year and until then I’d like to teach English for free. For anyone doubting my English, I’d like to say, I’m confident. In specific, I can help school students, beginner or intermediate English learners, or anyone preparing for TOEFL etc. Anyone from any age group interested in learning is welcome. Kindly recommmend this to anyone who wants to learn English if you see this.   Add me on wechat- [please send me private message for my contact information] for further enquiries. Thank you.
    • Dude,  you make a few mistakes... Xihu Qu just is the district (and it is really big) where zheda yuquan is located..  It would be best to just go to some agencies like wo ai wo jia. Best is to bring a Chinese friend with you because you will get cheated. Will you study at zheda?? Why dont stay in the international dorm building? It is quite comfortable, I stayed there 2 1/2 years.  From there you have a nice base and you can look around.. Keep also in mind that you normally pay 3 months rent at once,  then 1/2 - 1 month rent to the agency and 1 month deposit.. Around zheda you will pay between 3.5k-4.5k easily.
