There's yet another organic food store in Tianmu. It's on the same street as Takashimaya. If you were to walk on that street (on the same side as Takashimaya) towards ZhiShan MRT station it would be about half-way. It's on a corner with a stop-light across the street from a 7-11. It says something like "organic and vegetarian market" on the sign, in English.
ohh lord, stuck in ol' Linkou again.

organic vegetables and compost

Postby craighy » 30 Apr 2005, 15:21

Hi, I recently heard about a man, a frenchman, that makes compost here in Taiwan(Taipei) and grows organic vegetables. I was wondering if anyone knew about him or where I could find out more about him. I'm just interested in finding out more. I heard about this person from my Chinese teacher recently.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

Yes thanks I'd appreciate that info and if you know of any Health Food stores that sell herbal teas and other health related foods. I suppose stores that sell organic foods would also deal in related goods.
If you could tell me of any stores in Taipei city that would be great as well as any in Taipei County, I live Shi-Jir, if there are any. Thank you!

Where specifically are the ones near Da'an Park and Da'an MRT? Which streets?

The one south of Taipower is Cottonfields, right?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

The Sept 2004 issue of Taiphoon was on composting and they profiled foreigners composting and such. They might have an answer.

There are many other variaties to herbal teas in Taiwan if you don't mind the price (NT 2000 to 3000 for a can, of course there are cheaper ones), they're certainly organic. I haven't been back to Taiwan for a while, but if you want I can ask my friend about a real good tea place when I chat with him on the phone next time.

Organic Food Stores

Postby jae » 04 Apr 2009, 20:58

Is there any list online of organic food stores, preferably near the Xinyi area? Or even any organic food stores that have an online site?

I would like to find things like organic Flaxseed Oil, organic meats and seafood (or "natural" hormone/antibiotic free), etc.

Thanks in advance for the advice.
