“always organic, responsibly sourced”
It all started while working on a farm in Oregon. Wade fell in love with natural, good, healthy food & became quite passionate about growing, organic agriculture & its principles. After returning to the UK, Wade and Tara joined the lovely Crystal Palace Food Market; a market focusing on local, organic & biodynamic food and before they knew it we were part of the healthy food revolution.
“We’re very much into the preservation of our environment & the notion of reusing. ALL our products are refillable and are available in store by the weight – buy as little or as much as you need. We encourage customers to bring their own containers. We are all about responsible sourcing. Our products are always organic & local wherever possible.
Find grains, nuts, nut butters, dried fruits, oils, vinegars, rice, seeds, seaweeds, spices, herbs, coffee, teas and much more. Buy by weight (keeps the price down). Also get your eco cleaning products by weight too. All the staff are super knowledgable so ask for cooking tips and find some here.
