I love this grocer. It is exactly the type of grocer that an eco-conscious consumer desires.

The perfect place to do your weekly shop. Just bring your own bags and containers and stock up on what you need. You can basically outsource all the hard work of finding the most sustainable and ethical food options to the good folks at Flame Tree…It's close to Thirroul railway station too.

No waste, bring your own container and fill it with beautiful honey, tahini, nuts or coconut oil.
