Bulk Shopping recommendation

Hello all,
After collecting all plastics from food's packages that my family produces in one week, I am really motivated to reduce it and want to improve my Zero Waste Home lifestyle. I am looking for places where I can buy in bulk around Basel. Does anyone have a recommendation?

Many thanks.

Re: Bulk Shopping recommendation

probably slightly off-topic, but I buy all my family's groceries here - a nice farmers' cooperative just across the border in Germany - Binzen. It is called Fünfschilling.

Funfshilling is a great place for veggies and fruit. I have been shopping there since the summer and have been very pleased with the produce and most do speak English as well. You can use cash or credit card.

Thanks for the replies.
I will check this place as soon as possible.

I found recently this place in Basel, where is possible to buy some items in Bulk.
