CONSCIOUS SHOPPING - FOODSHED



Since going for a daytrip to Brighton in February, we’ve decided to go back there every month. In March, we have discovered a plethora of hidden gems from this peculiar town.

Their consciousness and sense of community is endearing and both of us could see ourselves living there easily.

We’ve chosen Foodshed as our first featured shop/collective for this segment of the blog because their values really resonate with ours.

Located inside the famous Open Market in Brighton, Foodshed is a small and yet well curated co-op that sells locally produced organic and natural products and has an extensive variety of good in bulk.

The ladies who run the shop have an extensive knowledge of their products and came up with creative ideas to make their shop as intentional as possible.

Their pamphlets and cards are made of recyclable fibers printed with vegetable Ink. They also supply customers with reusable glass jars and bottles, an alternative to those who don’t want to use paper bags for their bulk produce.

Overall, we were very impressed with Foodshed – highlight to their cleaning bulk section, which has soap nuts in bulk – a rare sight for UK folk!
