I didn’t know this shop but it was recommended to me by Lulu, of Mujer, and I was pleasantly surprised when I visited it.
First, I was struck the beautiful window with it’s reeds and rushes arrangement sitting right outside, and then I was blown away by beauty of the massive wooden door (an original feature) with various plants on its ledges, craftily planted in plastic bags and cartons – what a great way to reuse waste!
After recovering from my swoon over the door, I then fell in love with the wire basket stand that welcomes you upon entering Be Organic and which is filled with a number of interesting freebie papers and flyers about Barcelona and all things green.
The exposed brick walls and wooden ceiling beams, and the plain, untreated wooden shelves, as well as the polished concrete floor and pretty baskets here and there, are the elements used to create a cosy atmosphere in this lovely shop.
A round garden table features yummie products ‘du jour’, in this case delicious jams and a variety of healthy snacks.
Be Organic offers a good selection of food products (all organic of course) as well as cosmetics, cleaning products and more.
Down a couple of steps toward the back of the shop, you can find a good selection of fresh fruit as well as potatoes, pumpkins, squash and onions, and these have been displayed in (mostly) wooden crates.
All kinds of delicious breakfast cereals and wholesome milk substitutes plus a variety of organic pastas are also on display in this lower part of the shop, together with a basket of obviously popular walnuts.
A fridge with cooled products and more crates filled with gorgeous looking (and no doubt tasting) veggies complete this section of Be Organic, and a notice board beside the steps brings news to the customers about various activities in and around Barcelona.
Another great way to keep updated about all things healthy and green in this busy city, is to check out the shop’s blog (in English and in Spanish) here.
Have a happy, healthy Wednesday everyone, and see you tomorrow, here at the Cute Suite!
