Because supermarket food are good, but consuming alternatively local and fair-trade food is better, Just Arrived suggests a selection of six places or brands in Luxembourg offering fresh fruits and vegetables!

1. TERRA COOP AND ITS ASSOCIATIVE CONCEPT

Based in Eicherfeld, Terra is a member of the Association for the preservation of farming agriculture (Association pour le Maintien de l’Agriculture Paysanne, AMAP) which offers people who don’t have a garden or time to grow their own fruits and vegetables the opportunity to eat fresh and local foods. To do this, you only have to join the association and pay a fee in order to receive every week a basket containing weekly harvest (fruits, vegetables, roots, herbs, etc.). As a bonus, your basket contains fresh, organic and local products that vary according to the season, and which won’t be revealed until you order ! More information.

2. AVOCADO AND ITS ORIGINAL FOOD BASKETS
