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 a qualified nutritionist, a team who is genuinely passionate about our ethics, our shop is a one stop haven for a multitude of lifestyles, on Oxford Road in the University area of Manchester.

From groceries & essentials, skincare, body & beauty, nutrition & supplements, household cleaning and craft beer, we’ve got everything you need under one roof.
