A small shop with some organic produce, pretty close to the zero waste store.
Organic bananas are the cheapest here. Wish they were not packaged in plastic.
Definitely not the best place to look for organic produce, but they have some. They have lots of packaged organic products, some raw chocolate and a great selection of meat alternatives and vegan cheese.

Organic lentils.Organic pasta.
Organic mangos, organic figs, Organic nuts.

Small shop in Central. We live nearby at it was the first store we visited as we moved in this area.
After going to the organic farmers market we passed through the mega mall on our way to the bus back home and discovered this large food supermarket and wanted to check out they organic options as we didn’t get everything we needed at the farmers’ market.
The fruit display is beautiful, but only a few fruits are actually certified organic, let’s see which ones are.
Banans are certified organic and 17 HKD (1.90€/$2.17) for 3 bananas.
Here we have an overview of the biggest organic fridge in the store. There are some organic fruit, but mainly organic greens and organic veggies.
Organic papaya is around 50 HKD (5.60€/$6.38) for a kg, one fruit is about 1 kg. There are also organic limes, organic ginger, organic cucumbers, organic peas, organic baby corn and asparagus.
Organic greens and organic romaine hearts are around 60 HKD (~6€/$8).
Organic bell peppers are around 30 HKD for 2 pieces (~3€/$4).
Here is another partially organic display in the middle of the store. There is organic pumpkin, organic greens, organic red and white cabbage, and couple of other veggies I captured in following pics better.
Durian is not organic, they just cut it open and I could take a look at the stems, there was no visible ripening agent on it. Doen’t mean the durians are not treated but ok for me as an exception, we bought one piece on Vietnam durian, the Malaysian was too expensive we found
Let’s move on to the dried goods. I couldn’t spot any canned goods such as organic beans, lentils, or tomatoes here.
Organic rice milk and other plant milks, even rice chocolate milk.
Maybe the most exciting first. After couple of days here i Hong Kong I get actually really excited over apples and tomatoes.
In the fridge, we discovered organic greens, organic tomatoes and organic cabbage.
There is another fridge behind the apple isle. With organic mushrooms. organic apples and organic persimmons.
Can you spot the organic grapefruit and organic tenderness? Also organic celery and more organic tomatoes.
The canned stuff: organic corn, organic apple juice, organic chickpeas and beans.
Canned organic tomatoes and more beans.
Organic flax and cous cous.
More organic seeds, chia, grains and organic rice.
I think we had this kind of black organic rice at a raw vegan restaurant in LA. I was soaked and was pretty soft for an uncooked rice.
Organic sesame seeds, organic goji, and more organic beans.
Organic tomatoes in glass jars.
Found one more display with organic products. Plant milks, noodles, organic oatmeal.
After moving, this one was the closest to our apartment and it had a great variety of organic products. Apparently, people don’t buy organic produce so much here and many items were on sale,but mouldy, rotten. The best fruit to buy on sale is persimmon and bananas, they look rotten to people before they actually go bad. Be careful with corn, sweet potatoes and mushrooms, there was actual mould on them.
Organic carrots and baby carrots.
Organic orange bell peppers are wrapped individually :(
Persimmons are on sale. Sweet potatoes are mouldy.
Mouldy organic corn.
Organic avocados and organic greens.
Organic bell peppers and mushrooms.
Vegan organic milks.
Organic apple juice.
Dried organic berries.
What’s in the fridge.
Organic frozen spinach.
Organic tomato sauce.
Organic chips and apple juice.
More natural cleaning supplies.
It’s hidden in the Malls basement, ask for directions if you feel lost or check out the map in the mall.
They have a little of almost everything. We went to the Great Food Hall with a bigger backpack as we new they might have the best organic produce in town besides the farmers’ markets which were not happening that day anyway. The prices are as expected for imported foods astronomical. A little strange were the organic bananas for 110HKD (12€/$14) from Australia, don’t they get imported into Germany a well? Why are they in Germany around 2€ then.
Here is also a conventional product that caught my eye, never seen a freeze-dried durian being certified organic, let me know if you have.
Some organic herbs, herbs are definitely worth buying organic as all greens.
Here are the greens, I tried to catch the prices so you can see how much the produce is.
The Earthbound Farm greens were 52HKD.
They had lots of blueberries.
These giant non-organic berries were crazily huge, the organic once in the background were not small either.
There is a section with local Hong Kong organic produce on the bottom shelf. Everything is less expensive and around 30HKD.
Here are avocados, wrapped in plastic so it’s hard to see them. The amounts of plastic used to wrap the produce, organic and non-organic are heartbreaking here.
Here more random plant-based food we as raw foodies don’t buy but happy to share if you need them.
We actually bought the raisins. They were oil coated, haven’t seen this at the store, oh well.
Got these organic chia seeds. Chia puddings are so easy to make even while traveling with no equipment.
We still had some almonds we brought with us from Germany, but we might get them next week.
Beens and lentils, some even salt free. But don’t let be fooled by the low sodium statement on the cans. The so called “low sodium” products usually contain salt. Look in the ingredients List for a product with no added salt at all.
The frozen section, they had organic veggies, but all the fruit was conventional.
Raw organic mulberies, will be great in a chia pudding.
Lastly, the water in glass bottles.
Organic and natural shampoo and beauty products are near the cashier.
