Really nice organic store

Really friendly service and good selection of sweets with sugar free options. Also some basic macrobiotic products like miso, brown rice and seaweeds available. Highly recommended.

Very well stocked

The only place in Florence where I was able to find almond butter, as well as really good almond and coconut yogurts and delicious vegan + gf cookies.

Pros: Quite big, Really nice products

Cons: Not very convenient opening hours

Expensive. Gluten free bread 3 times a week on order.

It is possible to order rice bread for delivery on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (the order must be placed the day before the delivery, before noon). Soy yogurts available but very expensive. Fruits, vegetables and yogurts are very expensive. Friendly staff.

Pros: Soy yogurts, Rice bread on order the day before delivery

Cons: Very expensive, Gluten friend bread available only 3 days a week

Finally found kombucha in Italy!!

Cute store, wide selection of food items, teas, spices, natural beauty products and books. Nice aesthetic and plenty of vegan options! I've been missing kombucha so much and finally found it here!!

Contemplated going to a few organic/health food shops in Florence. Sugar Blues was one of my first stops (so glad it was!) They carry a nice variety of fresh breads (kamut/vegan..etc) and baked goods...teas, spices, beans/lentils and anything you could need at a grocery store. They also sold mala beads and some house ware/skin care which was really nice to see. The lady was super friendly and bagged my groceries (SUPER rare in Florence, it was super appreciated!) also in eco friendly bag since I forgot mine. Definitely check this one out :)
Ps. Different flavored tofus and vegan pre packaged foods in the front. Excited to try the basil tofu ?

Pros: Friendly, Nice selection

Cons: Bit of a walk but worth it

Great health food shop

Vegan food items include some fresh fruit and veg, mock meats by taifun and wheaty, mozzarisella and other cheeses, yogurts by Sojade (pricey), plant milks, cookies and biscuits, fruit/health bars, pasta, rice, grains and sauces. Lots of Italian products as well as many from mainland Europe.
We visited here a couple of times to stock up our nearby apartment. Staff are friendly, and there are plenty of cosmetic and herbal products too. Recommend going if you're in the area.

Pros: Good stock of vegan products

Cons: Certain items very expensive

Wonderful health food store!!!

While I've found a few small health food stores in Florence (that are great!), this one is also great,, and.. bigger! so that means MORE choices!!! Yay!! They have all kinds of stuff that you would normally want in a health food store, from different types of alternative milks, pastas, beans, snacks, spreads, cosmetics, some refrigerated and frozen stuff (including a vegan cheese).. as well as some fresh, organic ("bio") produce, bread AND a great little herb area in the back, with essential oils, etc.

I have been here a few times and ALL of the staff have been VERY sweet and helpful! :)

Pros: lots of choices, VERY sweet staff, some fresh organic produce
