  4. Hi Leigh, you’re in luck, particularly if you live near one of the universities –

    There’s a co-op at Griffith Uni. This is from the uni site: “The Food Co-op is located near the post office. The food co-op sells organic fresh fruit and vegetables and other fresh produce as well as bulk dried food. Home delivery service is available. Ph: 3735 7603.”

    There’s also ecobug at UQ – ecobug.food.coop@gmail.com – opposite Next Byte, below Schonell Cinema, 10am-2pm weekdays.

    Happy co-oping!

    1. Hi I’m looking for locations in Melbourne . Is there any down the peninsula way, Frankston Mornington ect.

  5. Hi there – coming to Canberra tomorrow (Thursday October 1) and would love to visit – but tried calling your phone number and were told our call could not be connected.

    Are you open tomorrow at the new address in Childers Street?

    We wish to purchase bulk goods – do we need to organise with your first?



  6. Hi – hope the move went well. We found where you were moving too, but not open at the time – obviously.

    Are you open now, for the next time we come through? And what are your opening hours.



  7. Hi could you please let me know if you sell
    Nutri Crisps which are made from GABA rice
    and imported from Thailand.
    The local supermarkets used to sell them but
    all of sudden I am unable to find this product.
    Thanks. Gabriela

    1. Hi Gabriela,

      Unfortunately we don’t stock Nutri Crisps. It appears they are distributed by “Fresh Food Enterprises” and there is an information line you can call on 03 9646 5999. Best of luck.

  8. Hello

    I am trying to find dried blueberries and/or raspberries. Do you have them? Do you know anyone in Canberra that does?

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Candice,

      We have organic Canadian dried cranberries in stock for $38.15/kg. We do not currently stock dried blueberries. There was a seller at the Epic Farmers’ Market who had dried blueberries about a month ago. Unfortunately, I do not remember who they were. Their stall was on the back row in the organic sellers’ section. They were organic. You may be able to find out more from the Epic Farmers’ Market website. I hope this helps.


  9. Hi Candice, do you mean dried raspberries or blueberries? They are Summer fruits and the only fresh ones available will be imported from a long way away/grown in an intensive system.
