First of all, well done for your involvement in favour of your health, the environment and the planet! Eating organic means being sustainable, healthy and responsible in your lifestyle. You are planning a holiday in Mauritius and are gluten intolerant and worried about how to buy organic products? No need to pack your suitcase with your favourite products, we make it easy for you by suggesting our four favourite organic addresses in Tamarin and Black River.
La Vie Claire Organic Store
Located in Cap Tamarin Square, a six-minute drive from Marguery Villas, La Vie Claire offers a wide range of organic and gluten-free products. There is a great selection of food items, as well as organic skincare and beauty articles. Babies are also on the list, with food and biscuits.
Special mention should be made of the local and Rodrigues organic products range: don’t miss their delicious herbal tisanes, honey, rice and achards.
The “Coeur de Tamarin” shopping centre, a six-minute drive from your resort, is home to a large U supermarket with an interesting organic dry and fresh produce section. You will not only find the house brand but also items from abroad, as well as care and beauty articles.
Please note that in your holiday villa, your Concierges will provide you with basic necessities such as kitchen supplies (oil, salt, pepper, sugar, coffee…) as well as beauty products (shampoo, shower gel, skin lotion).
Meeta and her certified organic vegetables
Looking for a good salad or to get some local and organic food on your holiday in Mauritius? Just cross the entrance of Marguery Villas to the shopping mall of Ruisseau-Créole. Hearty recommendation for organic vegetables certified by EcoCert, an international certification body. Meeta and her team sell her organic vegetables on Wednesdays (3:30 to 5pm) and Saturdays (10:30am to 1pm). Leeks, oak leaf salads, mesclun, batavia or rocket, sweet potatoes, chard, white and red radishes… Here, organic is delicious!
Whatever : the organic wine specialist.
And to complete your organic meals, an eco-friendly wine is a must. In Cap Tamarin square and next to La Vie Claire, the restaurant-bistro “Whatever” is an ideal wine cellar. Try its fine selection of wines from the French vineyards, most of which are organically grown, sustainable or even produced in a biodynamic process.
