Is pretty much a non-starter! It really is so expensive here! The only cheap things are junk food, of course, and there is a real dearth of healthy stuff. Shopping was an eye-opening event and left me musing on my budget and ingredients for the coming year. EcoMax was relatively cheap but one of the worst places I have ever visited! Even worse than KwikSave from my uni days... Carrefour is very expensive and did actually have an organic aisle but €7 for a box of cereal is a bit painful. I have otherwise seen two organic shops so I will go and visit them at some point.
One of the worst things to buy here pricewise is nappies - a far better incentive to using reusable ones than the money back scheme in Islington, is being charged €20 for a pack! So if you are coming over to see me, leave a little space for a pack in your bags!
On the positive side, Bertie's Dad brings plenty home from his countryside plot, known as Pika. But it mainly seems to be fruit and tubers/starchy food. Bertie has offered to grow broccoli, peppers, carrots etc for me, which sounds great!
