Where do you get organic veggies?

Recommended Posts

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!

"hi, dear friends, I am Wang Youyan. Good food make health.

I provide vegetables for all Hangzhou city. So if you live in hangzhou city, you can make order with me.I provide vegetabls all of the year. But the types of vegetabls are different from season.

To a family with 3 person , the packet is enough for a week .In every packet ,we provide more than 10 vegetabls, also with one piece of beef, one piece of pork(if you do not like meat, we can provide eggs instead). All of food come from my farm ,or countryside.

Once you taste my food, I think that you will like it. All foods comes from nature, and taste good. You will have nice appetite with these foods.

Also we can provide some fruits . Such as organic apple, grapes ....etc

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

All vegetables, fruits and even meat is organic. Even if you buy a McDonalds hamburger, its organic. The wheat to make the bread is organic, the meat of the sandwich came from an organic animal, the condiments were made from something that comes from nature. Even the person who eats the hamburger is organic. So somewhere in New Guinea, there are cannibals eating organically.

Organic is merely a buzzword for people who dont understand organic and will pay four times as much for the same thing because someone calls it organic. People who have money never know what to spend it on.

    • I decided to call up a friend of mine who is a cop. They are already planning to get rid of the electric bikes before the Asia games. So right now you can register one until 2021, then you won't be able to register one anymore. The reason, the biggest accidents in China are being caused by the fucking e-bikes. The big truck that had trees on it that fell on 3 people because of an e-bike crossing illegally was the straw that broke the camels back!
    • So, at the end of the day, Foreigners can actually own and ride Motorcycles in HZ  but just not the restricted areas yeah?
