Organic shops in Manchester

by Nadia7

Hi guys,
I am a vegetarian travelling to Manchester at the end of the year and would like to know where I can find organic shops in Manchester, in the centre of the city or near the centre. And I would like to find some shops offering organic cosmetics such as Lavera, Dr. Hauschka, Primavera Life, Logona etc. I know there are some other brands being sold in the UK then in other countries but any advice is welcomed. Thank you a lot.

You'll find all major supermarkets also sell organic ranges of fruit, veg and other foodstuffs.

Boots the Chemist do a range of organic beauty products.

Lovely 'Lush' bath & beauty products have organic ranges, as does The Body Shop. Lush is on St Mary's Gate, The Body Shop is in the Armdale Centre and on King Street.

You'll have no real difficulty in finding organic goods.

Thank you for your super fast responses :) I know Lush as well as The Body Shop, though some of their cosmetics contains harsh chemicals such as SLS so I do not use that stuff. But I will check the shops you advised, anyway. They usually sell more brands. Thanks again.

Gosh.......I didn't realise they'd been taken over. Hmmmmmm......

Yes, another brand which has been taken over by the giant!

There is still a fantastic organic supermarket in Chorlton - Unicorn Grocery - everything is organic (I think!) and vegetarian - their website is http://www.unicorn-grocery.co.uk/ and you can get there from the City Centre on the 86 bus - get off at the swimming pool which is next door.
In town, there is 8th Day on Oxford Road (next to MMU Student Union) - http://www.eighth-day.co.uk/index.htm

I'm pretty sure Harvey Nichols stock Dr Hauschka, and Space NK is always worth a try too, as they have a fantastic range of all kinds of beauty brands.

Ooh, and for great veggie food, try Greens in West Didsbury (111, 43 or 143 if you're on the bus!), it's very highly rated.

Thank you, sounds great :-) I knew there would be some organic shops in the city but it is always better to ask the locals. thnx

Travel Tips for Manchester

Typical British Breakfast

by Toyin

One might have this impression that I love food too much..Yes! I love British Breakfast. Having gotten used to eating too much Bageutte and a somewhat different type of Cheese in Paris. I actually took some of their cheese away in my pocket...Don't tell anyone please.

A diverse and innovative place

by jayhawk2000

A combination of ethnic diversity, gay friendliness and technological innovation makes Manchester the richest city in Britain in terms of 'creative capital' (Planning Journal, 30 May 2003).

But who needs dry statistics as evidence that Manchester is the best big city in Britain?

Think of the sporting excellence (Man Utd and City, plus record-breaking runner Paula Radcliffe to start)...the world famous music and nightlife (Oasis, the Halle Orchestra and the Hacienda come to mind)...our numerous theatres...universities (one of Europe's largest student populations)...artists like L S Lowry, comedians like Peter Kay, Victoria Wood, Steve Coogan and Caroline Aherne plus thinkers like Alan Turing...

And then there's the wonderfully diverse people who have given the city Chinatown, the curry mile, Polish bakeries, Turkish restaurants, the Gay Village, the boho Northern Quarter and the goth refugee camp outside Urbis...

...yes, Manchester deserves to be a permanent European Capital of Culture!

Manchester Phoenix Ice Hockey Club!!!

by Deus_ultima

If your a hockey fan, come on over and join us at the M.E.N arena!

Lot's of action and the crowd is well into the game!

There is also all sorts of fun games and ways to participate in the action!

Well worth the price! Bring a few £££!
Thought the venue is quite cheap, you'll have plenty of opportunities to spend more at the merchandise and drink kiosks!
;)

Stockport Market

by tvor

The market in central Stockport is outside and inside. There are stalls on the plaza in front of the market hall inside which you will find a butcher or two, a fish monger and cheese monger and a few little shops. The outside stalls have clothing, knick knacks and fruit/veg.

Thanks to VT member bugalugs for the photo :)

Christmas markets

by jayhawk2000

Starting mid- November every year Manchester hosts five to six weeks of open-air Christmas markets. These have a mainly Continental theme with a focus on food and crafts from across the Channel. You'll find traditional wooden toys, crystal, jewelery, plus Dutch flower bulbs. Tents on Albert Square sell German beer and sausgage just like you'd get at Oktoberfest, whilst you can also sample fresh pretzels, doughnuts, hot chestnuts, Belgian chocolates, Dutch cheese, Spanish tapas and French breads. Nearby in St Anns Square the market continues, where you can sip a warm mug of mulled wine while enjoying a chunk of fudge or some roasted chestnuts.

It's not just food and gifts from the Continent. You will also find art and photography from local artists, produce from regional farmers and even Chinese calligraphy and Japanese bonsai. You won't find many bargains, but you can browse and sample the atmosphere for free!
