Via Laietana 28, Ciutat Vella, 08003
If you are looking for organic food, ingredients, items or vegetarian and vegan ingredients, or just something healthy to eat in central Barcelona, then you should familiarise yourself with Veritas organic supermarket. Veritas is a chain of organic supermarkets throughout Catalonia with other branches in Poble Nou, Sitges, El Raval and Girona – to name a few.
This Veritas here on Via Laietana (the artery of a main road that runs parallel with La Ramba is quite a large branch and is therefore well stocked.
You can buy organic meats and meat products here such as pork sausages, chicken cuts and lamb – which we don’t find very appealing as we are vegetarians, but we do have handsome four-legged progeny with strangely sharp teeth which we believe are for the purpose of chewing meat.
More appealing for non-meat eaters is the range of oriental and Asian ingredients such as ramen noodles, tamari, dulse, nori, soya, miso and rice vinegar etc.
They have a lovely bread counter where you can buy cookies buy the kilo, croissants, neopolitanas, baby croissants, baguettes, flutes, sliced bread and occasionally slices of pizza.
A fresh fruit and vegetable sections contains the basics and then some; fennel, oranges, mangoes, papayas, celery, mixed salads (with edible flowers; Asian mix; Italian mix etc), several varieties of tomato, lemons, apples, bananas, plantain, peppers, garlic, onions, potatoes – the usual and dependent on the season.
They have a range of sweeteners such as agave syrup, honey, cane sugar, rice syrup, maple syrup and fructose; and nut butters, tahinis, chocolate spreads, jams and marmalades.
There is a small section for organic pet foods; and a small section that features baby products; domestic eco-cleaning products; and household items.
A large range of herbal teas, fruit juices, milk alternatives (rice milk, soya milk, quinoa milk, spelt milk, oat milk and almond milk) and they have cookies, cakes, rice cakes, crackers; potato chips, nuts, seeds, and a load of tofu products.
There are no specialist raw vegan foods currently available in Veritas. 🙁
