Apparently, you can order it from

https://www.farmy.ch

It looks like they have quite a few selections of it and offer free shipping.

Look in the bigger Migros, like MMM. They have kale, Swiss chard, and other greens. They are usually located in the chilled, open section of the produce.

Re: Where To Buy Swiss Chard

Most markets will sell it, but only in season- which is now coming to an end. In French it is called 'côtes de bettes'.

Thank you all. However isn’t Swiss chard red stalks with green leaves. Both of these look like Bok Choy or cabbage which is not Swiss chard

Re: Where To Buy Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is traditionally white as in the second picture. There are some fancy ones you can grow at home with red, orange and yellow ribs, not as wide- but they are just not the norm in the EU and CH.


My mum always cooked the white stalks with a white sauce and Gruyères, pre boiled then put in gratin dish and finished in the oven- the classical Swiss recipe. And used the greens leaves seperately as spinach.

Swiss chard is both white and red, although the standard here is white. There is also rainbow chard which has red, purple, orange stalks and tends to be smaller stalks, or harvested earlier.

We actually sauté the stems in olive oil and garlic, hot pepper, add the leaves and eat on a focaccia (my aunt from Calabria did this).

It is not Bok Choi (Maybe the picture is)

Here a translation of the Migros page

Krautstiel

The Krautstiel enjoys a reputation abroad as a typical Swiss delicacy. The English, for example, call the vegetable Swiss chard and the Swiss call it Mangold. Which is of course not quite correct. Of the two chard cultivars, Blattmangold (Leaf chard) and Stielmangold (stem chard), only the latter has been enjoyed as a Krautstiel since the 16th century. We [the Swiss] love it in the form of green, red or yellow stems, all of which taste like asparagus and are often eaten like it. This is why it used to be called "poor man's asparagus", just like black salsify. Krautstiel tastes good as a gratin and as a vegetable garnish with meat and fish. The leaves can be prepared and combined like spinach.

Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version) and by aSwissInTheUS.


The Blattmangold a.k.a Schnittmangold is used for Capuns or just like spinach
