Färm – Brandhoutkaai 43, 1000 Brussel
Färm is a 100% bio market that offers a wide range of food products delivered by small ethical companies, which are mostly located in Belgium. Färm was founded in 2013 by several entrepreneurs and investors as a project to support these small (family) businesses by selling their products for a correct price. The products they sell are either natural, eco-friendly, bio or ethically made.
Apart from food products, you can also join activities in store or experiment with the numerous recipes and DIY projects that you can find on their website!
Yuman – Charleroise Steenweg 123, 1060 Brussel
And last, but not least. Yuman. The difference between Yuman and the other stores in this list, is that Yuman is not only a store. It’s the very first circular shopping ‘village’ in Brussels. In this building of 1200 square meters big, you’ll find every durable product you need. Clothing, accessories, linen, decoration, cosmetics, furniture, rental services for objects and clothing, second hand books, zero waste products… Yuman’s philosophy is to be a one-stop shopping centre for those who want to shop sustainably in one place. No need to travel from one eco-friendly shop to another. You can find all you need under one roof. Go check it out!
