    Organic Food in Tung Chung

    I just moved to HK 2 days ago and our new home is Tung Chung. We did some walking around of the area to see what markets are available. But we were unable to find organic whole milk (for my 15 months old daughter) and wide selections of organic veggies/fruits, etc. What are my options as far as where I can go to get organic food?

    I heard that City Super has good selections of fresh produce and organic items, but I don't want to make frequent trips with my daughter to the market just to get 2-3 items.

    Thanks!

    I am not really familiar with Tung Chung, but 360 is an Organic supermarket and there is one off Kowloon Station, which is several stops from you on the same MTR line. (Since I live there I have bought organic Australian whole milk from them). One thing, however, I notice that you are from the US, where they encourage whole milk after 12 months in lieu of formula. In HK, due to the extremely high cost of milk - even more so for imported organic milk, a lot of moms tend to stick with formula longer. I am also from the US so I've spoken to my friends about it who have moved out here, and they say partly this is due to the dairy lobby in the US being so strong; no real reason to switch to cow's milk at 12 months since formula is made from whey anyway and has other things in it that are healthy for your baby. Just a thought in case you are having real trouble finding the milk or dealing with the cost of it!

    Oahu_2011, ThreeSixty does carry some organic food, but not everything is organic. Unfortunately Hong Kong's organic food market is still rather undeveloped and, as a result, when you do find organic food for sale it tends to be relatively more expensive than in other countries like the USA, UK and Australia. Things are slowly changing however.

    For home delivery, you can consider http://www.south-stream-seafoods.com.../Organics.html (some organic items), http://www.aussieorganics.com/ , http://www.meatmarket.com.hk/ (some organic items) and http://homegrownfoods.com.hk/ (organic fruits and veg).

    Although far away from you, you can also buy organic food at NaturoPlus http://www.starstreet.com.hk/eat-dri...FU4NHAodO0SIGg

    There's also an organic wine store in Hong Kong: http://www.foodtourist.com/ftguide/Content/I7426.htm
