Tired of fluorescent lights, squeaky lino floors and endless rows of shiny packaged products with mysterious origins? Abandon the pushy queues, coupons and trolleys and give grocery shopping a try at Taste Nature, a small eatery and organic grocery store in Dunedin’s central city. Well known for its commitment to organic food and sustainable living, Taste Nature is considered “the” organic shop in Dunedin by locals, selling a wide range of organic products (including beauty products, books and gardening supplies) from certified organic growers and producers.
A relaxed environment set in a grand old building, this is grocery shopping at its finest. And the best bit? The self-service eatery dishing up a delicious lunch menu based on seasonal fruit and vegetables, with a real rustic and handmade vibe. The amazing, sun-filled eatery also offers comforting cakes and slices with teas and hot chocolate served in Crown Lynn cups and sauces.
Do your grocery shopping with a side of warm fuzzies- there’s something about this place that leaves you smiling!
