Local producers for fresh and natural products
Because supermarket food is 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!
Sandrine and her fresh baskets : Gault & Millau Personality 2018
Based in Munsbach, Sandrine also sells fresh, local, often organic and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Collaborating with some suppliers, she takes advantage of her premises and farm to offer a wide range of products to her customers. On site, the customers can fill their baskets with the products of their choice for a quite decent price. Although located a little far from downtown, Sandrine and her baskets have quickly developed a reputation in Luxembourg since many famous Luxembourgian top chefs get their supplies from her !

Terra Coop and its associative concept
