Getting fresh herbs close to Maui
So many grocery shops in the neighbourhood but when you are off to find fresh herbs like Basil or Mint you find 90% of the shops only offer small quantities wrapped in lots of plastic, but for the same price you can find a big fresh bundle at these local shops )
La Fruteria De La Rambla > Right at the entrance there is a fridge with all kinds of fresh herbs.
Fruites i Verdures Agustina > Fresh Mint & Basil
A taste of Home
A taste of Home is a supermarket with imported products from the Netherlands, UK and germany.
The Dutch are influenced by the Indonesian and Surinamese kitchen, and so in this super you can find your favourite Indonesian sauses that you would otherwise only find in a Dutch supermarket )
Same goes for the English who love their House of Parliament Sause for example (HP-Sause is now made in Holland by Heinz by the way;) …All here in this market!
Plastic-free Granel Shop
Jaime J. Renobell > Tip from Cara; “I love this shop to buy in bulk & plastic-free, at more reasonable prices than for example the granel shops in Gracia..”
Gluten Free, good quality from near suppliers
Emi Carles > Tip from Ines; “For Meat mostly, is a small shop from Tetuan area, been working for ages keeping the meat and cheeses and all product gluten free, natural and good quality and from near suppliers. Not cheap, but eating well and good things sometimes is not cheap.”
