Spring is in the air and that means several things: longer days, more time outside and the availability of fresh produce! We have some places we'd like to recommend. You’ll not only appreciate getting to know more of the area, you're helping the environment (no carbon footprint for transport) while getting the best that local farmers have to offer.
BioHof Zug is an area favorite. Not only is the seasonal produce gorgeous to look at, they also have a great cafe, serving an Ayurvedic lunch menu two days a week with BioHof’s veggies taking center stage. The cozy and relaxed atmosphere, as well as delicious homemade desserts and coffee after keep us going back. Get there early so you can shop for farm fresh produce, eggs, bread, homemade jams, and more on site. The BioHof also offers event services and an online list of their organic produce.
The longstanding, family-run farm at HofMärcht has a sweet reputation.Their fruits, grapes, berries and veggies are all ecologically produced. But better than that, they also offer jams, syrups, dried fruit, fruit juices, distilled water, liquers and wines all made from their scrumptious produce. They have an on-line shop and offer seasonal gift ideas.
The Iten Letzi Hofladen near the Herti Arena is like an urban farm. Their committment to organic farming and animal welfare is why their produce and farm fresh milk and meat are so popular. The newly built farmshop opened in 2015 and also offers products from other local farms while the 24 hour automat offers products even when the shop is closed.
In addition to the farms mentioned above we also recommend you pay a visit to the Zuger Altstadtmarkt. Open every Saturday in the center of Zug's Landgemeindplatz, this is the perfect place to find fresh produce, baked goods, cheeses, gourmet food items and flowers. Spend the morning getting to know the vendors and enjoying the lake views.
This is just a small sampling to get you started. Here you'll find a listing of all the farm shops in the canton of Zug.
