Relax, smell the coffee and shop organic
Organic food at a great price in a stunning location
I'm sipping Southern Addictions organic 5 bean blend coffee at Nourish in Red Hill. The weather is all over the place in Victoria and I have come to purchase a huge box of fruit and vegetables for juicing to boost our immune system.

The range here is huge. Raw milk 'for cosmetic purposes' is available without having to place an order, but I have previously called to ensure there was stock. The seasonal produce selection today consists of, amongst others; apples, bananas, pears, kiwi fruit, parsley amongst the broccoli, potatoes, mushrooms and leeks.

I'm enthralled by the shelf with the vegetarian Biona Organic wasabi style horseradish paste and the Vegetables Creations organic tomato Kasundi. I consider myself a reasonable cook but there are so many new ingredients to inspire a wider range of experimentation with more nourishing foods. I can recommend the tempeh for a change from using tofu to cook with.
Healthybake bakery products are available so this is a one stop shop for dairy, bakery, fruit and veg along with cooking needs and some organic treats. Loving Earth organic chocolates are temptingly on the counter so please try one of these. They are good for you and very rich so I would encourage sharing and spreading the chocolate love beyond your visit to Nourish. Beyond the fresh seasonal produce available is cosmetics, natural washing detergents and powders, and a large range of nuts and seeds. When I visited a few weeks ago, I bought a 'No Tip' sign for an ecologist friend. It is great to see a local shop taking such an active part in the community.
