We’ve gone Off-Grid

It’s the time of year for us to go offline for a few weeks to explore the word by bicycle.  We can’t process any weborders at this time but will be back online Sept 6th so you can feel free to browse the shop, or place and order as long as you are ok to wait until around Sept 7-10th for delivery! (if you could add a note in your order that you are happy to wait that would be of enormous help)

We look forward to seeing you at some of our great upcoming events:


Vitality Expo, RDS Dublin, Sat & Sun Sept 8 & 9

Upon our return we will be headed straight to the Vitality Expo in Dublin.  We are pumped to be invited as we only stock small independent health food shops and it’s the Independent Irish Healthstores Assoc at the helm of this great event.  If you come, be sure to pop in and say hello, there will be plenty of samples to tempt you.  You can find us in the Artisan Village.
