Bio Federkohl (kale)

Hi,

does your local Migros carry bio kale leaves?
Not all branches do, but I travel through Switzerland quite often and would stop at those that do.

Migros in Meilen ZH and in Kreuzplatz ZH does sometimes. Any tips in other Kantons you might have?

Thank you, have a good one

Re: Bio Federkohl (kale)

I don't think it depends just on store, but also on the season and ... I don't know what.
I found that the Migros I go to, never have vegetables I want to buy that day, either it is green or root celery, specific sort of cabbage, parsley roots or parsnip, whatever.
My best guess is, they are just a bigger version of printers, they smell your needs and they refuse to help.

Not a Migros, but Manor Food in Emmen LU often has curly kale and/or cima di rapa. Not sure if they are bio though.

My best source for "cima di rapa" is local turkish shop in Kriens. Similar for other sorts of fresh vegetables, but they are mostly not bio.
And the best thing: for the price of few mouldy, aroma-less mint leaves in Migros I can get a whole bunch of them in his shop.

Re: Bio Federkohl (kale)

I picked up a bag of kale/federkohl in Migros a week or so ago. I'm not sure if it was Bio though (but I don't think so). I use it primarily in a veggie soup that I make, so I separate it into smaller freezer bags and then freeze it (for up to 2 months).

The large Coops do sell frozen kale, so it's nice that at least you can buy it that way all year round.

Coop megastore had it recently.

Farmy.ch had it during the winter but not now.

Turkish shops are a gem. You get a bunch of parsley or mint and what not for a few francs. I even found green tomatoes when we did our pickles, the Swiss I know were very surprised I've bought such things.
Plus the staff is usually super-friendly and respectful, what's not to like.
