Still looking for a bulk shop? Or fresh local vegetables? Here we share all the good spots we know so far, so ENJOY!
Bulk shops and/or local shops
There are no packaging-free shops in Uppsala, but you can find some loose products at Tantens gröna skafferi: lentils, seeds, rice, cereals, laundry, etc.
You can also find vegetables and beans at Svenska Delikatesser depending on the season. They also have Swedish products such as cheese, oat, meat, bread, juice, jam, surströmming, however these are not packaging-free.
Kåbo växthus och trädgård is magical! There you can find flowers and vegetables that you can grow at home. They also sell their own organic vegetables!
Almost all the supermarkets have nuts, candies, cakes and appetizers in bulk.
Local markets and cooperatives
At the end of August until October/November, there is a local market every Friday, from 14:00 to 18:00 in front of Uppsala central station. There you will find mostly vegetables and cheese. It’s the Bodens mat I Uppsala. You can also have a look on their facebook page.
On facebook, there is a big group call REKO Uppsala. Each producer posts the products he has and costumers order and pay with swish or cash. The following Thursday producers and customers meet on IKEA’s parking during 30 minutes.
Every Saturday there is the Torghandel på Fyristorg, from 6:00 to 16:00. Everybody can participate, so you can find local and hand-made products (from vegetables to soap). In general, there is no market during the winter.
Bramaten is one of them: you can choose your products online and pick up what you ordered the week after. They are located at Väktargatan, and you can find vegetables, meat, cheese, eggs, milk, kombucha, etc.
There is also Flogstamatkooperativ. Same thing, you order vegetables, oat, cereals, soap, etc. one week ahead. You have to register on their list to become a member and order products. Below is their email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ultimat is Ultunas’ mat kooperativ and you must become a member to order food from the associated producers.
The different cooperatives in Uppsala are always looking for new volunteers, so if you want to help them GO!
If you’re the more spontaneous type, check out the Bruised Food Club Uppsala for free food rescued from local supermarkets, which would otherwise go to waste !
