What's In Our Shop

Everything on our shelves has been tried, tested and reviewed by us. Since 1970, we’ve been huge fans of plant based, lovers of local and the eco things in life, and ethical advocates through and through.

With our own plant based kitchen attached to our downstairs café, we’re also super proud to offer our own vegan meal creations, exclusively in our Manchester shop.

Groceries, Essentials & Everyday

Everything you need for a meat free life under one roof!
From grains & pulses, baking, cooking, fairtrade tea & coffee, vegan, gluten free, tinned essentials like chopped tomatoes, beans, chickpeas and soups, cereals & oats, and even biscuits, crisps, chocolate and vegan marshmallows!

Fresh Bread and Seasonal Organic Fruit & Veg

Delivered fresh every weekday morning, the best sourdoughs, wholemeal and seeded loaves from local bakers Trove Bakery can be found in our bread baskets.

Our veg fridge is filled every week with fresh, often loose (without packaging apart from what nature provided) seasonal fruit & veg from the UK and Europe. It is an edible rainbow at its finest and it’s all organic, making it kinder to the environment.

Fresh, Chilled & Frozen

The best and latest in vegan cheese, seriously good hummus, spreads, yoghurt, milks and meat-free alternatives. Good for the gut Kefir, Kombucha, Kimchi and Kraut or the sauer kind.

Complete with cooking instructions, the made-from-scratch vegan meals made by our chefs in our plant based kitchen, frozen from fresh and found in the freezers in the shop.. You'll find favourites like our Dhal, Vegan Creamy White Wine Chick’n Pie, and Vegan Royal Lasagne!

We also have big beloved brands like Fry’s Family, Clive’s, and Booja Booja vegan ice cream.
