food, clothes, cosmetics, fun things

You will find everything there. My mom really likes Sabine Hofius, a designer who has her store in the basement, selling fair-trade, organic clothes made in Germany- the style is rather for adults -but you also find baby and toddler clothes, comfortable blankets, hammocks etc. in the store..or just nice presents. The food is more expensive than in other organic supermarkets because it's located in the heart of Cologne's shopping centre near Neumarkt (rents are high). On saturdays the bistro there is quiet busy and it's hard to find a table epsecially around lunch time but the atmosphere is great- even tourists go there. The veggie burgers are really tasty but small (and not all are vegan). Non- vegans will find quiches, tarts, cakes, pasta etc. What makes Naturata special is the grains and vegetables are often 'Demeter' quality which is the hightest organic standard you get in Germany. To the farmers growing them it only matters quality and taste not quantity and a high yield. Most farmers have an anthroposophical attitude towards their food (that's another why the food is relatively expensive).
