Some will tell you it's the best organic supermarket in the city, but it's also much more than that. Obbio is a place to buy organic products, a meeting spot where you can take your time to try healthy cuisine in the café/restaurant or while sitting on the lovely patio at the back.
Supermarket, fresh food market and wine shop
Located in an enormous, light-filled space, Obbio boasts an impressive selection of products with a wide variety of brands and affordable prices. Their concept is a bit different, with the motto 'Eat well and you'll feel well' reaching further than just gastronomy alone and bringing top products to their customers. The fruit and veg section features 100 percent organic, seasonal products that are principally grown locally. In the supermarket you'll find meat, charcuterie, fish, pasta, grains and all kinds of everyday foods as well as prepared meals including sushi made with organic rice. They've also got more than 60 types of organic teas. And there's a fantastic selection of natural wines, so you can take home the true flavour of the nectar of the gods.
At the back of the shop you'll find a cosy café with a welcoming patio where they serve juices, sandwiches and a wide variety of teas, among other offers, for a healthy break. If you want a full meal, the restaurant offers a buffet of prepared plates made from Obbio's own products, including vegan options. It's a great place to try the top-quality and tasty food you can also buy in the shop. If you don't have time to stay, you can also order dishes to take away.
You'll also find a specialised bookshop, with a selection of titles that have to do with healthy food and a healthy lifestyle. What's more, they also host events, talks, courses and workshops in this dynamic space. And if you've got the kids with you, don't worry, because Obbio has kept them in mind as well, with a zone designed for the little ones featuring coloured pencils and a big board where they can draw and write to their hearts' content.
Cosmetics and nutrition
There's also a space dedicated to personal hygiene and natural cosmetics, because your skin deserves the best of care. Soaps, creams, essential oils, make-up and everything you need to look after your body, free of parabens and chemicals.
If you don't find something you're looking for or are not sure what to choose, don't hesitate to check with the staff, who are trained in nutrition and macrobiotics and always ready to help. At Obbio there's also a free service offered by nutritionists who can evaluate your nutritional needs and help you make changes more in line with healthy eating habits.
If you're a fan of organic products, if you're vegetarian, vegan, lactose-intolerant, if you have celiac disease or prefer to live gluten-free, or if you just enjoy finding healthy products that are right for your specific diet, you'll find a real paradise in Obbio.
