What’s in season and what’s hot at the Co-op in July.

Fresh food news

Mid winter sees an influx of spinach, brassicas, onions and root vegies. These colourful caulis (above) are all the rage at the moment. And look out for local lemons!

Our new vegie stand is now in action. Constructed by the very talented Georgina Donovan, (who runs woodworking and spoon carving workshops at Lyttleton Stores), the new stand means more room for lots of lovely organic fruit and veg!

Plus a huge range of bulk foods including grains, pulses, seeds, nuts, herbs, tea, pasta, flour, olive oil, vinegar, honey and more!
