Vegemite in Basel?

Does anyone know if there is anywhere in Basel I can buy vegemite? I know there a a fair few Aussies out there, so I am hoping someone knows of a place.... Or even of a place online it can be ordered that actually has reasonable shipping costs.....

Cheers,
Megan

I've also seen vegemite in larger Coop locations...for instance in St. Annahof for those of you in Zürich. I would think if you visit a large Coop in Basel you may have a bit of luck...

good luck,
Jack

I think Fenwicks sells some, also the Geant in France. I might be confusing it with Marmite, though...they're all rather *shudder* to me

Re: Vegemite in Basel?

Thank guys, that's a great help.... I have found Marmite, but it doesn't taste the same at all..... Our local Geant has a pretty good selection of international stuff, but no Australian section Guess we're just that bit far away..... Evolver, I'm on my way over - thanks!

Cheers,
Megan

Re: Vegemite in Basel?

Hmm, Evolver, sorry... Just found out its only for Switzerland - our place is actually classified as France, although it is only a two minute walk to the other side of the border..... Thanks anyway.

Shame...another example how the swiss post rips you off by charging 3 times as much just for 2 meters more

Re: Vegemite in Basel?

I found vegemite today!

It is in the Carrefour in Mullhouse (the one right off of the highway with the little shopping mall attached).

They had at least a dozen jars - and I double checked, it isn't Marmite

We're happy little vegemites...

Hi everyone,

Question- particularly for the Aussies... is there anywhere in Basel or perhaps Zurich I would be able to find vegemite? It's the one thing from home I truly miss.

Thanks in Advance

Niko

Re: We're happy little vegemites...

Vegemite? I that not that edible lubricant, tried it once and went into anaphylactic shock, found out the hard way that you should not use it like peanut butter.

Re: We're happy little vegemites...

I've got a big jar and a new tube of it - our guests keep bringing us more and more of the stuff!

PM me if you want me to post you the tube full, or if you can meet at Stadelhofen (Zurich) I'll give you the big jar !

Anywhere to buy vegemite in Geneva?

Just wondering if there any shops stocking vegemite in or near Geneva. I have found the online Aussie shop in Switzerland from other posts but would prefer if possible to find somewhere where I can just walk in to buy it. If anyone has seen it on sale in Geneva, would really appreciate it if you could let me know where. Many thanks.
This user groans at Jen in Geneva for this post:

Re: Anywhere to buy vegemite in Geneva?

Why a groan with no comment? Seems just as legitimate a request as asking where you can buy lemongrass in Zurich....

To the OP: think online will be your best bet. Vegemite's fairly specialised. And welcome to Switzerland

I don't know about Geneva but I saw some in Orell Fussli in Zurich at one stage! Do you have an English one there? Maybe check. Good luck

Re: Anywhere to buy vegemite in Geneva?

It may be worth trying the American Market in Geneva - i seem to remember they stock a range of yummies from other nations (such as English Cheerios!) - may be worth a call? www.americanmarket.ch

Re: Anywhere to buy vegemite in Geneva?

Welcome to the forum Jen. Sorry, I haven't noticed any Vegemite here. I guess you have already checked Globus and Manor? I see that MyExpatShop sell it http://www.myexpatshop.com/storech/catalog.php and they have a connection with a shop in town. Maybe you could order it and pick it up there?
