Becoming more pricey and less organic.

These guys are the hub of Glastonbury for supporting local organic and sprayfree growers of fresh vegetables, fruits and other fringe items. They stock a big range of Riverford Organic produce delivered fresh from Devon. They've got the pantry sorted with everything you need from breakfast cereals, coffee, vegan milks, cows milk, chocolate to crisps, cheeses to Sauerkraut. We bought the vegetarian sausage rolls which were great. They have another savoury selection in the display fridge but don't warm them up for you - I tried eating the Potato cakes and they weren't good cold. I took them home and heated them up and were way better. They gave a deal going where you can buy 3 for 5 pounds which was pretty good value. The takeaway coffee was good - we ended up walking down the road to the church grounds and sat in there to munch on our goodies before hitting some of the crystal shops and clothing boutiques. It makes for a good day out when you can good coffee, organic food and chilled out vibes meandering around the streets of Glastonbury!

This place was great to buy nice local produce like the Pennard Organic Mead I enjoyed for Lammas. A great choice of natural soaps, lots of yummy foody treats, this is well worth a visit and a good browe.

Amazing selection of wholefoods and other 'health' foods and supplements. One of the best wholefood shops in the south west

I love this shop and would have given 10 stars if I could! Very friendly, knowledgable and helpful staff, top quality food. I am sad that your Portishead store has closed as that was much nearer for me. I will now resume my fortnightly trip from Clevedon to your lovely shop. Thank you to all of you. Best wishes Myra.

This must be one of the biggest and if not one of the best organic food stores in the UK. A real beacon for Glastonbury.

Love it in here, staff are super friendly and there's a great selection of stuff at reasonable prices. Live in London but always make sure I come here when I am in Glastonbury to stock up on soaps, vegan chocolate and other lovely bits. The sausage rolls are fab too.

Amazing variety of products, alternatives and essentials. Was really cool just to browse actual vegan products rather than buying all online (we don't have anything similar to this where we live!) On top of that the samosa from the bakery at the back was to die for!

Love this shop, I come here for a lot of my organic supplies. Great range of foods. I particularly like how they have a lot of ready to eat food aswell can highly recommend the Fritata. I also really like their range of toiletries, it's the only place I will buy my shampoo bars from, Great value compared to other brands. Very helpful and friendly staff too. It's good to see they are trying to follow covid guidelines, but there did seem to still be a lot of people especially families not wearing masks or distancing

Check out the top ingredients to add to your meals that naturally support your immune system. Backed by our qualified supplement advisors!

Autumn and winter are prime time for coughs, colds and general illnesses so we’ve been working with our qualified supplement advisors to bring you the best natural sources of immune support.

Why is immune health important?

Our immune system is crucial to fighting off infection and as colder weather rolls in it’s never more prominent than right now. It’s an impressive network defending against germs like bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins. Our immune system is made up of different organs, cells and proteins that all work together and they’re helped along by different factors.

What impacts our immune health?

  1. Sleep is important for a healthy immune system and not getting enough can impact your health.
  2. Getting enough vitamins and minerals like zinc, selenium, vitamin E, D, C & A all keep your immune system in tip top shape. Clinical deficiencies of these nutrients weaken immunity and can increase susceptibility to infections so it’s really important to get enough!
  3. Smoking is very detrimental to your immune system and damages your lungs.
  4. Drinking a lot of alcohol can suppress your immune system making you more susceptible to illness or make it a longer, harder illness to fight off.
  5. Many health conditions, diseases and high stress levels can hugely impact your immunity.

You can find more information at the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health.

  • Sage: antimicrobial, antiviral and antibacterial.
  • Pumpkin Seeds: high in Zinc.
  • Ginger: anti inflammatory.

A cosy cup of elderberry or rosehip tea is the perfect start to your day for winding down at night.

Make an effort to regularly wind down 30-60 minutes before bed, with no screens. It will hugely improve your sleep and a well-rested body is important for a health immune system!

Quitting smoking or vaping is tough but with the right support you can do it and make a huge improvement to your health!
