We are a neighbourhood organic grocery store with great quality, fresh, organic, unpackaged foods and products. We host events in their cellar and gives back to the community through local & global organisations that are at the forefront in making positive change. We believe in supporting small certified organic farms and local producers from South Australia with the belief that providing access to whole foods and unpackaged products makes a big difference in our lives, our community, and our planet.
We setup in an old building that once was a greengrocer between 1955-1973 in Mile End, 5031, Adelaide.
