This is the largest whole and health foods shop in Canberra. They don't carry produce (an organic grocer down the way in the same shopping center does), but their supplements section is the largest and best. They have regular vitamins and minerals, as well as a huge array of herbal supplements - both native Australian, as well as internationally sourced products, including current popular green foods, cleansing clays, extracts, tinctures, and traditional remedies from Europe, North and South America. They carry packaged and bulk whole foods and grains such as soy products, teas, coffees, dairy products (kefir, goat, nonpasteurized), honeys (raw, manuka), seaweeds; popular seeds, grains, and foods like chia seeds, maca, quinoa, millet, lucuma, mesquite, corn meals, raw cacao, agave; gluten free pastas, breads, and products; juices; dried fruits and raw nuts; oils and condiments; in-house and retail prepared foods. They also have an extensive beauty products selection (chemical free, organic, sunscreens, bath products) and a nontoxic cleaning and home improvement products sections (paints, candles, manchesters, cleaners), as well as books and music. They sell sustainably produced vegan and/or organic apparel and baby products (clothes, slings, diapers, etc.). Finally, they have a cafe that sells delicious foods and smoothies. The owner/staff will order requested products, and will also contact companies for more information about their products. This store is a must for any vegetarian, vegan, or raw foodist staying long-term in Canberra.Pros: huge array of readily available products, helpful staff
Cons: not open 7 days a week!
