I first visited root & fruits in the early 1990s, and became a regular haunt in the as i lived around the corner in bank st.

A great option, organic, and vegetarian/vegan heaven.

A must for those living in the wild west, a good choice for those having a day out gunslinging.

Good lunch

Posted on 01 / 17 / 2013

I came here when my usual lunch place had nothing vegan on the menu last weekend, and had a fairly nice vegan thai wrap. They have a wide range of vegan produce on sale in the shop, but I was disappointed to see meat on sale, which slightly put me off my lunch.

Pros: Reasonably priced, Vegan light options
Cons: Sells meat

RFF was down the street from our hotel during our stay in Glasgow and we went everyday. Great bread from local bakeries, a good produce section, and a nice deli. Chairs outside if you wanted to get a sandwich and coffee and eat there, but we usually walked to the Botanic gardens after and picnicked there. A good selection. You can buy vegetarian haggis there, which was a nice souvenir.

A Great West-ern deli and store

The deli in the shop sells lovely hand made products; all are labelled as to whether they are vegetarian or vegan or contain any nuts etc. They take away coffee is particularly nice too.

The shop is really good for local products, Tapa bread is sold, and if you're after Tchai Ovna tea they also have that (both of these companies are Happy Cow listed).

If you are vegetarian, there is a good cheese range (again many local kinds such as Arran cheeses, Scottish brie etc) and local dairy products. They also stock vegan cheese, as well as EngineShed tofu (from Edinburgh).

There is a small organic meat and fish section.

There is a separate shop for flowers, and a separate shop for fruit and veg. There are some organic and local fruit and veg options.

If you are visiting Glasgow and walking along the kelvin way, take a detour up the steps past Big Blue cafe/ bar and go up to Great Western Road to this shop for picnic supplies!

Pros: Local produce, Organic range, Good selection
Cons: Sells meat (small organic selection)
