Eat your heart out! A look inside vegan supermarket Ecocentre in Barcelona

Shop review #48 –Β Ecocentre is a vegan shop in the city center of Barcelona. We went to Ecocentre after visiting the nearby Sagrada Familia and having lunch at vegan restaurant La Trocadero.

The front of the shop is rather small, but after opening the door and upon entering we were overwhelmed by the size of Ecocentre. Whooot! It’s a (small) supermarket!

The place is packed with vegan goodies, food items like cereals, cookies, pasta, but also faux meats, icecream, cheese and pies and cakes! And also some books, cosmetics body and care products and cleaning products.
It is so exciting to visit a vegan shop, and certainly one this size! But also so reassuring, since one does not have to check labels to see whether any goods contain animal products (which seems to have become second natureΒ πŸ˜‰Β !

Unfortunately we couldn’t do any real shopping (we were just here for a short holiday and couldn’t buy any stuff that needed cooling during transport home). But we did buy some body and care products.

Wish we had a shop like this in our area!
