The New Leaf Co-op is a new vegetarian wholefood shop in Edinburgh. We offer competitive pricing, responsibly sourced ingredients and an alternative to over-packaged foods. We have a whole room dedicated to our unpackaged, Scoop your Own and Refill ranges. We offer eco-friendly packaging where possible, and customers are encouraged to save money and waste by bringing their own packaging from home. As a co-operative, we all take equal responsibility in running the business. We aim to pay ourselves a living wage, and further profits are channelled back into the business and toward seeding new projects with similar aims. We stock: -Over 50 lines of pulses, beans and dried fruits to Scoop & Weigh. Prices get cheaper the more you buy, and there’s a 10p discount if you bring your own packaging (for 500g+ purchases) -Grind your own crunchy peanut butter, using our dedicated grinder. Bring your own tub and pay 50p per 100g. It’s easy and delicious! -More than 80 high quality, loose herbs and spices (for both culinary and botanical uses) in our spice alcove. -Many lines of refillable cleaning products for your body and home. Brands include Eco-leaf, Bio-D and Ecover. -Fresh, organic fruit and veg, mainly from Scotland and never air freighted. -Delicious fresh bread from the amazing community bakeries at Garvald, the Engine Shed and Bread Share. -As well as a wide variety of popular, branded ranges and products we’ve packed-down in-store.
Earthy is a local produce store, market garden and cafe. We support over 100 small scale Scottish producers and stock a huge range of local, seasonal and organic food products, including FairTrade. All of our products are GM-free and environmentally friendly. *Both the cafe and the store sell omni-options, however veg*n food in the cafe is clearly labelled, and there is a wide range of suitable choices in the store.
A mile of shops, The Royal Mile connects Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. The Royal Mile is the most touristy and well-known shopping street in Scotland. This is where so many of the Fringe acts in August come to perform, where you can see people playing bagpipes, visit fudge shops and jewellery shops, and people-watch. Along this street you will find vegan favourites such as The Baked Potato and The Fudge Kitchen.
