While locally grown organic produce is difficult to find in Moscow there are several gourmet supermarkets that stock a range of quality mostly-imported organic or “bio” goods. Globus Gourmet at 22 Bol. Yakimanka near metro “Polyanka” is open 24 hours, 7 days a week you can find imported organic goods and a deli including an extensive cheese counter. Bio-Market (Био-Маркет in Russian) is a specialized store chain where you will find a large range of organic food and beverages from Europe and including their own new-launched Russian organic dairy fully certified according to European organic standards. There are two stores inside the MKAD (Moscow Circular Road System) being Lesnaya Street, 5, Sector C of Belaya Ploschad (Белая Площадь) Business Center. (metro station Belorusskaya) and Rublevskoe Shosse, 30, building 1(metro station Molodezhnaya). The newest offering in this category is the Farmer’s Bazaar in the newly opened Tsvetnoy Centre at 15, bld.1, Tsvetnoy blvd which proclaims to offer an ‘unprecedented range of ecological products.’ As an added bonus take your purchases upstairs to the Antresol restaurant where the chefs will cook up your food to eat in or take-away for 30% of the purchase price. Eco-Magazin Naturalnykh Tovarov at Prospekt Mira, 119, building 228 stocks organic food and cosmetics and was started by a concerned Mom. The closest Metro station is VDNKH (ВДНХ). If you want to learn how to shop like a local then take a Saturday morning market tour of Moscow with the Taste of Russia. Your guide will explain the history of local markets, where to get the best seasonal produce and some Russian cooking traditions. They also run Russian cooking classes – for English speakers - where you can learn some Russian specialties – think beef stroganoff, borscht and pirozhki - to show off to your family and friends!
