Potential- However, limited selection and pricey. - Edit

Cuenca is definitely in need of some vegan friendliness, in addition to fairtrade goods, and it's a relief to find a place with a specialist selection. However there is a lack of product variety; Such as nut butters (I only saw one brand of almond, that was over 6 euros for a small jar), no pots of hummus, no breads (there were only a few packets of pita available) and I didn't see any vegan cheeses on offer. I was looking for fairtrade coffee in particular; but the only jar was 11 euros!! I liked that they had some fresh fruit for sale, and other goods such as clothes, bags and little ethically produced ornaments. However the large Auchan store, part of Alcampo, has a bio-aisle which I feel has a better selection of products; tofu, soy cheeses and a colossal range of milk alternatives (soy, rice, almond, oat etc)- All at a much cheaper price. But it's always nice to support the smaller independent places- so I try to buy a product from 'Comercio Justo y Ecologico' every now and then. What I also find strange about this place, is its lack of self-promotion; The sign is not obvious, or indicative of its products and ethical stance, and the lights always appear to be switched off, even when the shop is actually open.

Pros: Specialist Selection of Fairtrade Foods, Also Offer Eco Cleaning Products, Very Friendly, Welcoming Staff

Cons: Selection is Somewhat Limited, Rather Expensive , Very Easy to Miss/Pass

great store in cuenca - Edit

we have been in cuenca for a month and this store gave us the opportunity to buy good organic and vegan food.
they sell vegetables and fruits (no so many but, everything is in good quality.)
they have a wide range of products of all kinds,
and twice a week they recieve a fresh healthy bread.
the staff is kind and they speak english as well.
