Where can I buy lettuce?

Recommended Posts

Been here many years, and now am on a diet and have been successful in the early goings. Basically I take supplements all day and then eat a BIG ASS SALAD for dinner with a small meat side. Started this in the USA. I have really enjoyed the salad because I can find LETTUCE everywhere.

So, and this might sound dumb, where do you get heads of lettuce in China? I do go to Wet Markets and where the locals shop a bit. And the supply seems to be limited. I am just seeking a ball of lettuce. I do make a mean salad though. Lettuce, red peppers, onion, pico de gallo (can I get that here, don't like tomatoes, although this is basically tomatoes, cherry tomatoes for a substitute) chopped sweet pickles (bringing jars from overseas) raisins.

I also lack a real oven and do not wish to fall back into cooking food with oil, but would also like to have a small amount of meat. But I am keeping to mostly a vegetarian plan.

Would also like to join a gym, but they are so fking expensive here. I have priced them and just too expensive. I like saunas too.

But yeah, where to get lettuce?

Hey!
Had a bit of a similar problem. And as I'm also a bit of a lazy person, I'm mostly ordering these kind of things online. Tried out several options and ended up ordering on Fields. It's like a online supermarket kind of thing. Delivery times are not the best as they only do 3 days a week I think. But the stuff is pretty good even though rather pricey I have to say...

Greetings,

Fabian

Thank you for the response.

No offense, but Fields is ridiculously expensive. As in their prices are way out of whack for what they sell. They used to put ads on my Facebook page and I made so much fun today their stupid pricing, they disallowed my comments (cannot blame them).

Someone PM'd me and suggested METRO. METRO's locations are so remote, there should be another option.

I know this is a really late reply. But I get my veg from Taobao. Including iceberg lettuce, those tiny little radishes,  fennel, and arugula/rocket. I've tried a few places on taobao, and they were all very good. They come in styrofoam packages with cooling packs in them.
