Have you tried Jason's in the bottom of the 101, they sell a lot of organic stuff.
I think you'll have a hard time finding any organic meat or seafood here though...

Searches are your friend. There are lots of threads on this topic. :bow:
“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.”

Thanks - I took a look at Jason's but unfortunately couldn't find exactly what I need. I will try City Super as well, as I heard they have a decent selection sometimes.

Thanks again for the reply.

There's a thread on an organic supermarket in Banqiao here.

I'm told there's a completely organic farmer's market here, and they have among other things, organic chicken, organic eggs, some other produce like bananas, and fair trade coffee beans -- and organic salad dressing. I have not been there. They also deliver, with a delivery fee of NT$100 for orders under NT$1500; they only deliver on Fridays and weekends, and it's best to place your order a few days earlier than that. You'll need at least a little Chinese language ability to arrange deliveries, but not much, and not if you go to the market in person.
