Where to find fresh dates in Zurich?

They should be in season now in July and August. Anyone noticed them around?

I would like to buy some but cannot recall seeing them anywhere this or in previous years.

Re: Where to find fresh dates in Zurich?

Try one of those corner greengrocer shops, with a display of fruit outside, and a mini-supermarket inside. They are often a family business, commonly known as a "Turkish" shop, or just "the Turk", although they are often run by others, too, just very rarely by Swiss people.

Try Barkat in Wiedikon https://barkat.ch/index.html#/ They also have a selection of them e.g. Medjool et al in the fridge at the end of the store nr the meat counter.

When did Kronenhalle become a pick-up bar?

OP you could just go to Migros?
And Lidl has a great variety of fruits and veggies, if they're in season now they most likely have them.

You so can have fun with an edible kind of a date.

They should state at least for what sexual orientation it is popular, e.g. Odeon is popular for gays:
