It’s always serendipitous to stumble upon a health food shop – no matter where it is.
Having recently left Granada which was in fact, very low on health food shops, it was disappointing to find Malaga not much better. My supplies were running low having not really found a really decent health food shop since Catalonia some months back.
Herboristeria La Gloria as the name might suggest sells herbs and supplements and tinctures and vitamins etc. It’s a small store. You won’t be issued with a trolley on your way in and there is no lower ground floor, but if you are after some raw nuts, locally produced honies, organic loaves of bread, vegan spreads, muesli, granola, different types of flours and a few oriental ingredients – then this is your best bet in Malaga. Or at least the best that I managed to find.
At Herboristeria La Gloria you can also find the usual health food ingredients such as rice, oils, condiments, cane sugar, and quite a few gluten free products such as cookies and breads if you are celiac or just avoid the sticky stuff out of choice.
They also stock a few organic toiletries, beauty products and household products such as washing liquids, fluoride-free toothpastes, organic tampons plus organic shampoos, conditioners, shower products and soaps.
If you are a raw foodist then you certainly won’t be able to find all that you seek and you won’t find things such as agave, nama shoyu or raw food ingredients – but you’ll find a few items that will help make your edible journey in Spain a little less unsatisfying.
