Meeting Point: Schmiede Wiedikon

Barkat and Brocki-Land.

Shopping tour...

So, we will meet at between 9:45 and 10 sharp outside Barkat Cash and Carry - this is an asia-style grocery with all the ingredients for your asian foods, plus bulk products, butcher and seafood...all under one roof!

We will spend around half an hour browsing the store and discussing cooking ingredients (gluten free a specialty!) before heading to the bus stop and catching the bus a short distance to 'Brocki-Land' at Manesseplatz.

There you will get a chance to browse to your heart's content, and be prepared...it's very overwhelming ! And I'll give some tips on how to find stuff!

The tour will officially finish at 12noon, although 1 hour in the brockenhaus will definitely not be enough...

Bring:
comfortable shoes
shopping bag
adequate funds
zone 10 ticket for Zurich or change to buy your ticket
sense of humour!

How to get to Schmiede Wiedikon:
Tram 14 from the Hauptbahnhof
Tram 9 or Bus 33, 67, 76, 345

Please add any questions to the thread, and I'll Pm those who sign up with my mobile number a couple of days prior to the event...

Re: Zurich Shopping Tour - Barkat and Brocki-Land

Hi there,

Sounds like fun! Not to sound daft but what is "Brocki-Land". I have never heard of it. What do you buy there?

What other interesting places do you go to? I LOVE shopping!

Thanks

Re: Zurich Shopping Tour - Barkat and Brocki-Land

Just to clarify, we are meeting at Schmiede Wiedikon, which is the tram/bus stop. Barkat is right at the stop, to the left hand side of the cheap clothing shop which is literally right at the tram stop...

Hope that's clear enough.

I will PM all the people who have signed up with my mobile phone number - please text me if you are lost/confused/late or not coming.

Thanks!

Re: Zurich Shopping Tour - Barkat and Brocki-Land

Managed to find it but was about 11.30 when I arrived so didn't catch up with anyone on here

Tons of stuff to wade through and plenty of bargains if you were patient enough to sort through.

Thanks for info anyway

Mike

Re: Zurich Shopping Tour - Barkat and Brocki-Land

I've put a shopping tour on the 4th of September of the new 'viadukt markets' in Zurich - it's the official opening day, there will be lots of freebies and entertainment...

Hope to see you there!
