Sitges Market is situated near the centre of Sitges, just outside the Renfe station on your right-hand side (if alighting from the train). Walk inside the market through the glass doors and then go to your right and half way along you will find Dharani Herbolaria Biobotiga aka the little organic shop.

It’s run by a lovely couple who don’t speak English but are very sweet and will try to help you if they can. I bought spirulina, maca and coconut oil here. None of which I had been able to find in various outlets of organic supermarket Veritas or in any other of the many health food shops in Barcelona and around the north of Spain. I’d actually got a friend to send me some spirulina as a birthday present – I was that desperate for a fishy green fix in my morning smoothie.

They have a tiny range of organic vegetables and fruits plus organic nuts, skincare products, Lindwoods superfoods (eg flaxseed, goji berries etc), a few organic baked products, cookies, oils, flours, soya and rice milks and oriental ingredients. I even found brazil nut butter here at one point! Sweep loves nut butter. And he also loves coconut oil straight from my fingers or anything else I smear it on (I mean biscuits – not body parts). And it’s good for his fur and seems to assist with his many allergies.

It’s also a good spot to get your supplements. If they don’t have it they will try and get it for you.

If you are a raw food vegan and in Sitges, then you simply must visit this tiny shop. It might not have such a big range as Veritas, but it’s a cute little mom and pop business selling good stuff to conscientious people. And the prices here don’t seem any different to those in Veritas.

Whilst you are here you can also stock up on (non organic) fruits and vegetables, at the market. The fruit and vegetable stalls sell a fairly good range and the quality has been consistently good, so far at least.

There is also a good fruit and vegetable shop opposite the market called Casa Ametler. They have a pretty diverse range of natures offerings including nuts and fresh herbs such as basil, mint, cilantro and dill.
