Local producers: fresh and natural fruits and vegetables
It is very handy to go to the hypermarket or other supermarkets to do your grocery shopping, but consuming in an alternative, local and fair way is still a very good solution. Just Arrived offers you a selection of six local brands making available fresh fruits and vegetables baskets or local and organic food!
Sandrine and her fresh baskets: Gault&Millau personality 2018
Settled in Munsbach (Schuttrange municipality) in the family-owned farm, Sandrine Pingeon sells her own production of fruits and fresh vegetables, local and seasonal. In association with some local suppliers, she takes advantage of her farm to offer a wide range of quality fresh products besides fruits and fresh vegetables: eggs, cheeses, delicatessen, breads…
You can do your groceries shopping here at very reasonable prices. Although a little bit far from the city centre, Sandrine and her baskets quickly became popular in Luxembourg since many Luxembourg reputed chefs, some of them referenced in the Guide Michelin, go there to get their supplies!
Moreover, Sandrine was named Personality of the Year 2018 by Gault&Millau Belux!
The little extra? The choice, the very nice welcome and the change of scene.
Terra Coop and its associative concept
Situated in Eicherfeld, Terra Coop is an AMAP (Association pour le Maintien de l’Agriculture Paysanne) which offers the people having no garden or no time to cultivate their own fruits and vegetables to consume fresh and local produce. For that purpose, all you have to do is becoming a member of the association and paying a contribution in order to benefit from a basket containing the weekly harvests (fruits, vegetables, roots, spices) every week.
The little extra? The products of your basket are fresh, organic, of the season and local but they are not revealed to you before ordering!
Avocado, and its original packed meals
The concept of Avocado is to supply baskets of non-transformed, fresh and local, regional or European organic products allowing to cook from 3 to 5 meals (the choice is yours) for a week. Boxes are delivered at home after registering on the website avocado.lu
Avocado offers several themes of baskets such as juice, vegetarian, vegan or low in carbon DIY baskets. Each basket is delivered at home; it is then up to you to prepare your meals with the contents of your basket. The little extra? Recipes and meals suggestions are supplied with your packed meal!
Le Chat Biotté and its “bio bottes”
Located in Bergem, Le Chat Biotté also offers 100%-organic fruits and vegetables baskets (called “bio bottes” as a reminder of the name of the brand).
Consisted almost essentially of local products harvested in the surrounding farms, the “bio bottes” are available in 3 different types of boxes: the energy basket (consisted only of fruits), the vegetarian basket (consisted only of vegetables) and the mixed basket.
The service works in the form of a subscription (from one month to one year long) and offers a very interesting value for money (€33/box).
The little extra? Recipes are also provided with your order!
Co-labor and its wide selection of organic baskets
Situated in Walferdange, Co-labor offers several varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables baskets: “panier jardin”, “panier fruit”, “panier basic”, “panier famille”…
Every basket contains local products, mainly stemming from orchards and vegetable gardens in Beggen, Syren, Bertrange and Sanem. When the productions decrease in our regions, these are completed by other organic fruits and vegetables from the region or from Europe.
The price of the baskets varies from 15 to 27 euros. Co-labor also sells bread, honey, juice and organic eggs.
The little extra? The big variety of products available! Possibility of fetching your order to Walferdange or in Luxembourg and possible home delivery.
OUNI, and its respect for the environment
From summer 2016 onwards, OUNI, the first organic and unpackaged grocer’s shop in Luxembourg, Rue Glesener, is open! A second shop is now open in Dudelange. OUNI is the abbreviation for “Organic Unpackaged Natural Ingredients” and means “without” in Luxembourgish.
OUNI offers numerous unpackaged products, that you have to weight yourself and go home with with your own bags, as well as other products sold in returnable packagings. The brand offers not only plenty of organic foodstuffs, but also local and fair hygiene and cleaning products, unpackaged or with reusable packagings. An interesting alternative to traditional supermarkets.
