What kinds of organic, vegetarian and allergy-friendly foods are available, such as organic produce, gluten-free products, meat substitutes for vegetarians, etc?

I know of no organic foods beyond the "female diet" aisle in Super Selectos where you can find TVP, marked up Wasa crackers, some soy protein, and stevia. The concept of organic, or simply eating healthily, does not exist here. - Apr 28, 2012
There is an organic market next to Hospital Diagnostico (CLUSA).They get new produce on Wednesdays and Fridays (fruit, vegetables, honey, nuts, and other things).Yemaya is a restaurant that sells "healthy" food, not necessarily vegetarian. You can also find some things at the Merliot Market like chia seeds, cashews, flax, herbs, and various homeopathics. You can also buy a 50-pound bag of whole wheat flour from the mill near the botanical gardens. - Jul 15, 2011
