YES! YES! YES! - Edit

I love this shop. It is the cheapest place for organic foods in town. Also you skip packaging as you can by nuts, grains and similar per kilo. Stuff is friendly! They also have discount if you buy for more then 500kr (I believe it was) and if you have come by walking, bike or public transport! Choose FRAM always if you need to buy organic food and othe products.

Pros: cheapest organic food in town, friendly stuff, buy per kilo

Cons: small space

Bulk-buy heaven - Edit

Fram is somewhere to go to stock-up! You can fill paper bags of rice, dried beans, chick-peas, banana chips, figs......etc etc, as well as get high-quality fresh vegetables and other vegan foodstuffs such as stock, pate, cereals, tofu, "cheese" and chocolate. They also stock a good choice of organic shampoos, soaps and toothpastes, and are particularly good for biodegradeable nappies and feminine hygiene products.

Pros: well-stocked, friendly

Cons: opening hours

I love it! - Edit

Here you can get beans by the kilo for cheap and everything is organic. Dates and figs and all kinds of nuts for your raw diet you can find here. Lots of peanut butter and different kinds of tofu. last time they had really cheap Swedish broccoli.

Pros: All organic, cheap

Cons: small, few open hours, meat prducts

Friendly - Edit

It has a good selection of grains and organic food. Not much vegan processed type food, but has some.

Recommend you go for bulk shopping, as they give a 10% discount if your bill is more than 600 kr as long as you are also only using public transport to get the shopping home. My shopping was a bit less than that and the person at the till said if I wanted to get the discount she was happy to wait as I chose other things and serve others in the meantime. I ended up getting more stuff to try and it costing less than originally!

Pros: Friendly, discount for public transport users

Cons: Too much non-vegan stuff in fridges

The place to buy organic staple foods - Edit

Fram is a cooperative and it shows in the atmosphere. I like a store run "by the people for the people."

I like Fram for the reasonably priced staple foods. I buy my rice there. Most of the grains come in large bags (25-50kg?); one can take exactly as much as needed, either in the small paper bags provided or in their own containers. This approach helps to lower the price of the food and curtain the waste of packaging. Furthermore, most of the foods in the big bags are fair trade.

Pros: Staple foods, Cosmetics
