All kinds of sustainable
goods can be found at Boldog Föld (‘Happy Earth’), a zero-waste store found among
the charming houses of Wekerletelep. Suppliers have been carefully
selected, most of them from ecologically conscious entrepreneurs familiar at the
small-batch producers’ markets in Budapest. Sourdough breads and pastries are
provided by Panelpék,
fruit and vegetables by Szorgos Gazda, unadulterated flour by Garat
Mill and homemade butters and cheeses by Garabonciás Farm. Among
others, the store offers all kinds of seeds, dried goods, organic legumes,
lentils, rice, pasta, beans, chocolates, herbal teas and oils. In addition to
food, you will also find cleaning products and bathroom accessories here. Shoppers
can take their goods in their own bags, but if someone forgets to
bring theirs, they can also use the jars collected locally and the bags that
can be bought in the store. For products that cannot be poured out, such as
toothpaste and body lotion, the
packaging is taken back and recycled. Coffee and delicious
homemade pastries are also available before or after you shop.
Tip: the other famous delicatessen at Wekerletelep, A másik bolt, is only a few minutes away.
At the Mystery Hotel Budapest, you can not only check into suites resembling a painter's studio or having the Mona Lisa hung above the bed, but feast, clink your glasses, and even unwind in a unique spa.
