Favorite shop

I get all the more special vegan products from Ruohonjuuri. Coconut aminos, nutritional yeast, vegan vitamins and brazil nuts etc. What they don't have, you don't need. They have very good website and stores around Finland. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable.

Pros: Vegan chocolate heaven 😋

Alternative shop

It's a shop that has so many vegan products. You can find all you need and there are sales on some products most of the time. Its student friendly as well but it can be expensive.

Pros: practical, Friendly staff

Cons: Prices

Vegan, cruelty free and low waste products

They offer a good variety of vegan products, as well as cruelty free cosmetics and household essentials. Some items are worth the money, but they also sell some BS health products. Quite expensive overall.

Pros: Vegan products, Huge variety, Cosmetics and household items

Cons: Expensive, Watch out for BS products

Excellent selection, but some prices are high

I found almost all of the uncommon items I was looking for here, though in some cases I paid more than double what I would’ve paid elsewhere, as some of the prices are a bit high here even by northern European standards. Still, it’s nice to find such a good selection of natural products all in one place, and with a pleasant atmosphere and friendly service.

The best store in Nordics!

Every time I visit Helsinki I come here. Great range and very high quality! I wish we would have more shops like these where I live.

Best selection in Finland

From Ruohonjuuri you can find a large variety of vegan chocolates, cosmethics, fake meats etc. I believe Ruohonjuuri is also the only shop in Finland that sells coconut yoghurt. Excellent shop but can be expensive.

Pros: Many vegan options, there are always some products

Cons: Can be expensive

Expensive, don't get conned here!

Pretty popular and maybe most well known hippie store in Helsinki but they keep selling colloid silver water and all kinds of alternate medicine there. Products are at least 20% more expensive here than bought in Ekolo, Ruohonjuuri or regular supermarkets.

Pros: Location

Cons: Super expensive, Alternate medicine and other humbug,

Worth checking out

Great store selling everything from fresh produce to organic skincare products to miscellaneous household goods. Whatever it is you're looking for, they'll probably have you covered.

Pros: selections

quite expensive

Wide range of every day items, but it is quite expensive. I would rather go to Ekolo or Vegekauppa.

Very nice shop

I love this place and I visit it each time I come to Helsinki. It's quite small, but has a lot to offer, from different kinds of food to clothes and cosmetics.
4 cows only because it is not entirely vegan.

Pros: Lots of nice stuff, Nice atmosphere, easy to find, Very friendly staff

Cons: Lots of non-vegan produce

invasion of alternative medicine

I would love to see Ruohonjuuri as a store with locally produced and environmental friendly products that cannot be found in conventional foodstores. I haven't been happy to see how alternative medicine and all kinds of crystals and magnets keep invading more and more space in Ruohonjuuri during the years.

Pros: locally produced juices, organic vegetables, organic bread

Cons: alternative medicine

Number one in Helsinki

Here you can buy anything vegan/vegetarian: shoes, food, snacks, toothpastes, detergents etc. And also hear about pro-animal and environmental work in Finland. It's a little expensive though. Easily found: it's opposite (north-side) the Kamppi shopping centre.
