We are more aware of the potential dangers of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and growth harmones and naturally, we have chosen organic food for our family. We are concerned about what we feed our children especially. Because children generally consume 2 to 4 times more vegetables than grown ups, and so they are exposed to a higher risk. Dhanyam is a good place to shop for organic food stuff. I go there for my monthly groceries as well as everyday vegetables and dairy products. Dhanyam is located in a nice locality--traffic-free roads, lot of parking space, and easily accessible. The store is air-conditioned (thankfully--you know how summer is in chennai) and I always get a warm reception from the store people.
This is not definitely one of those organic shops in chennai where you will have to stand in long queues to even get the sight of organic vegetables (and that too this 'Darshan' is only on weekends) Dhanyam store is a big relief for someone like me who would prefer to shop at my own convenient time, and also in a pleasant atmosphere.
And, I'm also very happy about their recent service---delivering "vegetable baskets" at my doorstep. With this, I don't have to go to their store for my everyday vegetables. I just submitted a list of preferred vegetables, and they deliver it fresh everyday. Initially they did not have a good range of fruits but now they have a good range of fruits which is really a welcome thing this summer---mangoes, watermelons, bananas, papayas, strawberries, chikkus etc. you can find a lot of really good stuff there that is worth the price. Great variety, good customer service; Overall Dhanyam is a fantastic place for organic shoppers.
