Located in Northern NSW Lismore and Coffs Harbour, we are a family owned and operated sustainable run wholefoods store. We also have a growing online store and recipe blog.
WE LOVE WHOLEFOODS! Before Denise (the fantastic cook) and I (the fantastic eater), opened our store in Lismore, NSW, fresh affordable wholefoods were just not available to everyone. We had to change this. Taking a big step in 2008 we borrowed the money for our first store against the only thing we could, a heavily forested piece of land with a small shed in the beautiful Northern Rivers, our family home. A very scary thing to do but love will make you do almost anything. So our love for people and delicious wholesome food took over.
We opened our first store in Lismore, the original bulk foods store in NSW, based completely on our life long philosophy of doing everything in a fair and ethical way. Treating the environment, the land, the farmers, the food as well as our staff, customers, friends, family and each other with sincere respect and generosity whilst having fun and laughter along the way is most important to us. We are them and they are us.
Trust is what has sustained us, and it is from this place that we strive to provide all our customers with the best quality wholefoods at the most affordable prices. Whether you are shopping with us in our Lismore store, the more recently opened Coffs Harbour store (2014) or online you can trust that your fresh food is handled with the utmost care, and friendly professional service.
We welcome you to Affordable Wholefoods and are always open to any feedback you have to offer.
