Where to buy organic foods in Konigstein area

11 posts in this topic

I have just moved to the Konigstein/Kronburg area with the family I work for as a nanny. Could anyone help me find a Bio supermarket in the area? I am aware that REWE and Tengleman carry a small selection but am looking for something more...Many thanks.

I think there's a DW in Kronberg and although they're more of a health food/chemist they do stock some organic stuff... not sure if this helps?

 

Do you have a car? If you do theres some great farms that sell direct on the outskirts of Wiesbaden (think the one I went to was called something like Mechtetshild, near a US base)

Thanks! Don't have a car yet but it has been promised! The farm thing sounds great so will look into it.

It is fab- I went there a couple of weeks ago and bought loads of organic cheeses, bread, fruit, veg, meat and it was such a gorgeous place- they also do wines and cosmetics. They have a stables there too that peope rent for their own horses and there's a cafe to chill in- its a gorgeous courtyard

There's a brand new one in Oberursel at the Holtzweg traffic circle.

 

When it replaced a grim computer store, I saw it as the first sign that the economy was tangibly improving.

 

N.b. Everything's superexpensive, but if you're already living in Koenigstein, then what the hey ;-)

I've actually quit lurking just to answer this post! Konigstein has an excellent farmer's market every Friday morning. In addition to the fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods and cheese, there is a bio stall that sells bread, vegetables and various other items.

 

We've recently moved from Konigstein, so the Hanau farmer's market (the largest in Hessen) is closer, but I miss the one in Konigstein. It had everything we needed without being too big.

 

Additionally, there is a Reformhaus across the street from Tengelman.

 

Hope this helps,

Ramona

There is also a TeeGut in Kronberg, on Frankfurter Straße next to the Deutschebank.

You can also go to the market there on Saturday morning which is also good.

We also get a fruit and vegetable box delivered on a Wednesday from http://www.novum-gemueseabo.de/ which is great.

Just stumbled across a small organic Supermarkt in Bad Homburg - didn't write down the name (D'oh!) but it's on the right-hand side of the Marktplatz (just off the Schloss end of Louisenstraβe) - you can't miss it. Lovely middle-aged lady runs it. And how about this? - friendly "hello" and smiles from a German shopkeeper! :blink: Worth going there just for that.

 

Good selection of breads, fresh and cured meats, dairy products, cooking oils/vinegars, veggies and dry/tinned groceries. Certainly an order of magnitude better than the Bio section in your average Toom/Rewe/Lidl - and also better than the selection in the Kaufhof and Karstatd food halls (wonderful though those places are for most other edible goodies).

 

Also has a small selection of organic wine.

 

Prices didn't seem too horrific - especially considering the location . . . . LOL
