Called Клуб разумных покупателей (klub razumnykh pokupateley, club of intelligent buyers). Moved to Ulitsa Anatolia Zhivova 6, under the “Гирлянды” sign. Eight minutes walk from Metro 1905. MORE>>
www.siroedov.ru, Russian only. A standard selection of overpriced “health” type items. Order via their site, pick up things at Maly Kiselny 6, apt. 1, (495) 727-8139. Among items noticed is birch tar soap, a delightfully stinking thing.
A nearly untouched by time consignment store found at Preobrazhensky val 25, next to a church or a monastery with a large “Иконописная мастерская” (icon-painting shop) sign.

Рыбный рынок (rybny rynok, fish market), Pyatnitsky pereulov 2. Look for Elena the butcher under the sign “Деревенское мясо” (derevenskoye myaso, village meat). Small eggs from young chicken at 100 roubles per 10.
Next to her is a stall with Ukrainian (Lviv) and Belarus beer but I think I’ve already listed it.
About one question about it per year, and I’m glad to finally be able to give a positive answer. I’ve seen these signs before but this is the first time in Moscow I’ve encountered a functional unit for sorting garbage. The corner of Novokuznetskaya and Klimentovsky. What’s more, the writing says it is some sort of a civic initiative.
Individual car tours. Tver region, Gold Ring, Karelia, Kola. Camping trips. You can easily save enough on hotels and cafes to cover the cost of my involvement. MORE>>
Vegetarian hangouts, organic vegetables, soap made from something other than boiled animal bones etc. Ecological causes and organizations. Lots on particularly vicious food products or additives. Packed with info that feels up to date. Russian only.
