Namdhari’s Fresh – A Healthy Alternative.

{Picture taken from here}

Veggie Lover? Health freak? Paranoid about pesticide-levels in food? Then head right over to the nearest Namdhari’s Fresh outlet, where you can pick up delicious and healthy organic farm-fresh vegetables.

A venture of the Namdhari Group, Namdhari Fresh stocks a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, grown with minimum use of pesticides, in their farm near Bidadi. They export their produce too.

You get all the usual Indian vegetables – beans, lady’s finger, cabbage, bottle gourd, etc. There is one variety of beans which is very tender and sweet – it’s delicious! You get a huge variety of greens – and the best part of these greens is – as every cook will appreciate – it is very clean! You just need to wash it twice (and the second time only for psychological satisfaction). [Contrast this with the greens you get in the ordinary market. You have to wash it 6-7 times for the mud to completely disappear.]

Exotic vegetables are also available – also grown in their farm – broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, lettuce, cherry tomatoes (a wonderful any-time snack), etc.

Fruits of course – along with the usual pineapple, bananas, etc, you have kiwi, Australian and Chinese pears, Melons, Australian Apples, strawberries, etc., and of course, seasonal fruits.

The stores also stock bakery products, chocolates, canned goods, bottled jams and syrups, biscuits, ice creams, milk products, fruit juice, etc. They have also started stocking organic grains.

They also sell seeds – flower, fruit and vegetable seeds, with detailed instructions on how to grow them.

All this goodness, of course, comes at a price. Most of the products are priced slightly higher than the corresponding product in your regular store. But it is definitely worth it.

There are four outlets – at Jayanagar, Indiranagar, Koramangala and Sadashivanagar. In fact, the outlet at Sadashivanagar even has a snack bar, so to say, where they serve fresh salad with dressing, soups, pasta, breads, etc. For a light, healthy, dinner, this is a wonderful option, and it comes highly recommended by me. :)

Check out the outlet nearest to you, and go healthy! :)

    I have one right near my house that I frequent. A bit expensive, but really fresh and green.

    There is one more chain like this called “24 Lettered Mantra”. One store near ORR/Sarjapur, another at Jayanagar.

    They offer value for money. I was a huge fan of Namdhari’s whilst in Bangalore, and particularly for their watermelons.

    Silkboard: Yes, I had been to 24-lettered Mantra just when it opened. That had more of organic foodgrains. Not many fruits and vegetables when I had been there (to the Jayanagar outlet). Did buy a few things, though. Interesting concept.

    Kishor: Value for money – you said it.

    I visited the Indiranagar branch as recently as Thursday last week and I am always spellbound when I enter their outlet. The variety, the arrangement, the freshness… just amazing! I would not mind paying Rs. 10 or 20 more than the usual subziwaala to get fantastic farm fresh produce.

    I used to visit the I’nagar outlet frequently when I was working close-by. I used to buy lot of good veggies and fruits. They are not only healthy and clean but tasty too.

    Sandeep, I think someone living around that area might be able to help you – I personally am not aware of any!
