A specially curated list for all healthy eaters!

 

We are in the times of organic food and leading a healthy lifestyle. It can be confusing for people when they go shopping, because on one hand you have conveniently grown products, and on the other you have organically grown ones. Organic farming doesn’t have synthetic fertilizers added to the soil, or synthetic pesticides. Organic produce is a little expensive compared to the products that are processed. Farmers’ markets and restaurants that serve food with organic vegetables are a regular feature in Kathmandu now. We’ve curated a list of places you can go to for organic food if you already haven’t!

The Farmers Market at Le Sherpa, Lazimpat
Every Wednesday and Saturday, Le Sherpa hosts a Farmers Market from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. that has a variety of fruit and vegetable vendors. They also have stalls for European cheese, fish, bread and pastries, organic honey, homemade chutneys, and jam. The Bagel Shop, The Old House, Chez Caroline, and Timro Concept Store also put up their delicacies. From locally grown tea and coffee to flowers and home décor, this farmer’s market has a lot to offer. Le Sherpa also has a special brunch menu at their restaurant.

The Yellow House at Sanepa
Every Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon, The Yellow House is host to a Farmers Market that has most vendors like Le Sherpa, and some new surprises as well. From Mustang apples to ripe and ready avocados, season’s fruits, and vegetables are available here. You can walk around and taste items from all stalls and speak to the farmers themselves. The perfect place for a picnic!
