At getULocal, we have a vision. We want to bring back the old neighborhood with its little iconic shops. Back then when people used to shop food from the farmers´ markets or local grocery stores. The good news is that there are some dedicated and passionate shop-owners out there who strive to find the best quality products. Products that are produced from little sustainable organic farms and fair-trade vendors.
We made our research and visited some of these shops. We present them to you below, with the hope that they will have clones in all the neighborhoods of the city.

Another grocery store stationed in Enghave Plads, where you can find high-end Italian products which are carefully selected and imported directly from different regions of Italy. They also cater and deliver to restaurants products like pasta, truffles, fresh fruits and season veggies; but also take-away lunch which is honestly, impossible to resist. Yummy, yummy… (Photo credit: Mercato di Osteria 16)
PS: Spidsroden offers delivery of fresh and organic fruits and veggies in your door. (Photo credit: Spidsroden)
When it comes to food that feeds the soul, we were positive that Christiania (Refshalevej) had the answer. Just inside the free city of Christiania there is a 100% organic grocery store which sells bread, dairy, meat, wine, alternative medicine and holistic items etc. (Photo credit: Christianias Indkøbcentralen))
