The organic market in Saint Jean
The organic market in Saint Jean takes place every Thursday from 4 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. in the smart district of Saint Jean. The initiative originated with "Bio Genève", a group of organic producers. You can buy fruit, vegetables, bread, wine, beer and various meat products. On the corner of Avenue Gallatin/Chemin Furet.
Sauser is unfermented grape juice, drunk especially at the Lake Geneva wine festival in Russin, where it is pressed on the Saturday morning, i.e. just a few hours before the festival begins. Sauser goes very well with the fruit tarts and famous "Gâteau polonais" made by the farmer's wives in Russin. Available from a number of cafés in Geneva.
"Le Glâneur" bread
This bread is a local product, the result of a partnership between farmers and the bakers of Geneva. The dough is made solely using local flour and is really tasty and crisp thanks to the traditional fermentation method that is used. Available from a number of bakeries.
Calvinus beer is an unfiltered organic beer that has been brewed by the Papinot brothers for 10 years now. It is made from spring water and organically grown barley, hops and yeast; it's fresh and tasty. There are three types: light, wheat and dark. Available in supermarkets and bars in Geneva.
