Eat Green: The Best Stores that Sell Organic Products in Metro Manila

When one thinks of food, they often associate it with farmed food with the idyllic and picturesque image of verdant rice fields with sprawling mountains in the distance--a picture of provincial life's subtle charm. Unfortunately, the reality is not as forgiving. The fancy restaurant you regularly eat at may have some of the fanciest wine, cheese, and gourmet food but the ingredients may not be sourced at a farm. Truth be told, some of your food's ingredients may come from factories. The truth is that behind every food item on your table is a giant industry that mass produces food--often unethically and with little to no thought of the food's nutritional value.

With that said, the words organic and sustainability get thrown around casually. But hardly anyone ever knows the meaning. They often associate the words organic food with a type of diet that is often complemented by a gym or yoga regimen but that is not entirely the case. Organic food refers to the way food is grown and processed. In lieu of GMOs, synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides, organic farming aids in the product's growth by using natural fertilizers such as compost and manure. In the same way, it also allows for animals to grow, eat and roam free in their natural environment--a more humane manner than raising them in crowded cages. While many might argue that organic farming is nothing but an expensive fad, it actually aims to provide better quality food.

More importantly, it is more sustainable for the environment.

If you have been thinking of making the switch to organic farming, below are some of the best shops to source organic greens and meat.

Real Food


Situated at the Molito Lifestyle Mall in Alabang, this shop sources ninety percent of its goods from local farmers. It has everything from vegetables to wines and snacks delivered fresh to its shop each morning. The shop was conceptualized and founded on the aim to make a healthy living not just accessible, but possible as well. For those who wish to have their merchandise delivered, they offer free delivery services every Sunday around the areas of Alabang, Makati, and Pasig for a minimum purchase of 1000 PHP.
