The Produce bulks up the north side

North siders, we hope you’re planning a spring detox because there’s a fresh new kid on the block in Ashgrove who’s got everything you need for a health kick. With smoothies, juices and healthy treats on offer, as well as all the pantry products you could ever want, The Produce Bulk Foods will soon have both your taste buds and hips in alliance. The Produce Bulk Foods is a health store and café where you can stock up on chia seeds, almond butter and other healthy oddities affordably while you wait for your organic smoothie to be blended up and munch on a raw slice. Pouring Melbourne-sourced organic and fair trade coffee with organic milk, slow-pressing juices and dishing up some delicious vegan treats, this is one slick newcomer you’ll want to visit every morning. Pick up the ingredients for that paleo slice you want to make on the weekend without having to spend and arm and a leg or worry about the leftover goodies sitting in your cupboard for months. You can weigh out the exact quantities you need for almond meal, coconut flour and any other staples – although you might be tempted into filling your basket with some goodies you didn’t plan on purchasing! Want to leave the baking to someone else? Try one of their out-of-this-world raw, vegan, gluten and dairy free treats in flavours like lime and coconut, banoffee and peppermint choc, supplied by Brisbane local K.M Raw and More. Whether you want to pre-order a juice via the store’s app and pick it up en-route to yoga or would rather spend your time meandering down the long aisles of super foods and organic supplies, make The Produce Bulk Foods part of your daily grind. They’re opening their doors on September 5 with a free juice day and we can assure that these smoothies are worth a trip alone! You’ll find them at 230 Waterworks road, Ashgrove.
