The Organic Co-op 736 Pollen Street, Thames, North Island, New Zealand

This is a cute, rustic store filled with all sorts of organic healthy goodies. I find they are a lot cheaper than our local health shop for personal items such as hair and skin care & and often are good for fresh fruit and vegies. An added bonus is that the fruit and vegies that they atock are always in season! No long food miles here!

Staff are always very friendly and are usually volunteers. And they always try to get something in for you if they don't happen to have it in stock.

This shop is reasonably priced, so I don't mind supporting them regularly. I find they have the best selection on Saturday morning in preparation for the weekly Saturday morning markets that they have in their Grahamstown block of town.
