Neighborhood markets cannot guarantee the best produce.
According to Real Life, locally grown fruits and vegetables are
often more harmful than healthy because of toxic chemicals. Real
Life, the first in Asia admitted to the Organic Trade Association
(OTA), carries all natural foods that are environmentally friendly.
The product line is extensive: "clean & green" produce,
cheeses, vitamins, cooking ingredients and more. "Silky"
tofu (NT$40/5grams), made fresh by a master trained in Japan, relies
on imported soybeans from Minnesota - not the GMO (genetically manufactured)
variety. "Green Shopping Days", the last weekend of the
month, offer significant discounts. A visit to Real Life's newest
location in Hanshin Department Store or the main shop (37, Lin Teh
Street; tel: 07/726-8608) is an education. The staff enthusiastically
shares expertise. If you have concerns, they're able to trace items
back to original source point (from shipping container to actual
field plots). Beverage service and take-out are also available.
