We are all being confronted with sudden and radical changes to our routines and lifestyles. In trying times like this we become more aware of the things and people we usually take for granted because they are always available. Nothing has made this more evident than one of the basic needs and pleasures: food. With a curfew being enforced and restaurants ordered to close their dining areas, it seems that life has come to a screeching halt. Fortunately for us, many people and businesses are going the extra mile to continue to provide for us.

We’ve put together a list of businesses that are still delivering food and groceries. We hope that these contacts help keep life as close to normal for all of us.

We also have a list of Innsbruck-based online shops delivering other goods HERE.

Local Farmer Produce, Meats, and Dairy:

Markthalle

Innsbruck’s resident farmers market has developed a delivery and pick up service to help vendors and customers alike. If you are already familiar with the vendors within Markthalle, you can call and place your order. The staff will put it together for you and have it ready for delivery or pick up the following day. They also have a veggie box for €30, which will include a variety of preselected seasonal veggies.

Some personal recommendations:

Bärlauch (Ramson or wild garlic) is in season and it won’t last long. Ramson is a broad-leaved garlic that grows at the very beginning of Spring and doesn’t stay around for long. The farmers at Markthalle already have it available; I just picked up a bunch. It makes great pesto, soup, and omelets.

Marianne Unterlechner has it ready and it costs € 1.30 per bunch.  You can also call her directly to see what other seasonal pickin’s she has at the moment. +43 699 105 756 03

Carrot Cheese from Thomas at Tiroler Schmankerl-Alm. This cheese is made with pressed carrot juice, which adds a nice little sweetness and beautiful color to it. I like it on its own with bread. They have a big selection of cheese, including different types of Tyrolean Grey Cheese (Graukäse). Their beef, pork, and deer sausages are also really good. +43 676 308 31 01

Peter Lieb Weerberg Standl has my favorite Kaspressknödel and Spinatknödel, both made by his daughter in law. He also has a variety of other dairy products including yogurt and butter. +43 676 534 63 08

Philip and Alex at BrotSchmiede have a great selection of artisan bread. I really like their spelt (Dinkel) croissants and my wife likes the Vinschgerl. Vinschgerl is a dark and dense bread made with rye flour.
