Food Co-op

The food co-op is an ethical trader that has been going in Melbourne for more than 30 years. It provides affordable, low packaged (bulk) food, fruit and vegetables, health and eco-cleaning products. Our particular emphasis is to provide natural, organic produce that is grown and prepared locally - preferably by small companies and producers. 

Our wonderful lunch time cafe features locally grown or fair trade teas complimented by cakes, muffins and a delicious organic meal of the day. Our nourishing hot lunch is served from midday until late afternoon.
