List of Health Food Shops in Malta and Gozo

health-shops-in-Malta-2

Are you looking for a health food shop in Malta or Gozo? Do you want a list of health food shops to check which is the closest for you to buy from? Veggy Malta has compiled a list of shops that sell healthy food according to where they are found on the island. Whilst many people choose to buy from traditional retail, one must highlight that health shops are important. They offer a more personalised service. The staff is usually more knowledgeable on nutrition and can offer advise. And the product offer inside health shops is more focused.

Health shops are not just for vegans, vegetarians, people suffering from intolerances but they clearly are for everybody who wishes to ingest healthy food. Many health food shops today offer a wide range of products, including packaged health food, fresh food (to consume), vitamins and supplements, gluten-free products, dairy free products, fresh organic vegetables, packaged organic products, frozen food, cruelty free cosmetics and eco-friendly household products. I have listed these main categories and labelled them accordingly.

The following are the labels for the product categories

C – Cruelty-free cosmetics and body-care products

D – Dairy free products

E – Eco-friendly household cleaning products

F – Fresh health food & snacks (which you can consume there and then or take to work)

G – Gluten-free products

H – packaged Health food

O – packaged certified Organic products

S – vitamins and Supplements

V – fresh certified organic Vegetables

Z – vegan froZen food

Whilst there might be other health food shops, the list will only includes those shops that have been reviewed by Veggy Malta. These shops have been individually visited. Veggy Malta will not vouch for any retail outlet that has not been visited and checked at least once. In fact each one of the names below leads to a specific blog post describing that shop.

  1. I like Sattva in San Gwann, and Jane and Anna are always so helpful. The shop is nice and the choice of products is great.

  2. How is it possible that you did not list a well established and well-known shop like Casa Natura in Sliema? Those local shops should be more supported and advertised than a franchise like Holland and Barrett. Casa Natura offers everything listed above and even more. You wont find that many organic products in a shop like Holland and Barrett for example.

    • Hi Patrick, I understand what you state. As a starter I do not make preference between one health shop and another as they are providing a service and each shop has its positive attributes. If a shop is not listed the probability is that they did not accept my offer to make a review of their shop, as VeggyMalta does not do mystery shopping reviews. As you can see all the shops listed have been been visited and reviewed as a service for my readers. You will understand that VeggyMalta cannot recommend any shop that has not been visited and reviewed. This does not mean that to try to cover the entire health market on the island. I appreciate your feedback.

  4. I personally use Holland & Barrett Sliema, so helpful and so conveniently located. Plus they have all I need in one shop .. it’s great to have this international chain here as well.
