Better Food St Werburghs
Better Food is a well-established name on the Bristol food scene, having been started by local food hero Phil Haughton back in 1992, well ahead of the current trend for healthy, organic food. There are now three Better Food shops and cafes around the city, selling organic, local and ethical food and drink as well as lots of other items for the home. Think of it as your local supermarket but with the community and sustainability at the heart of everything it does.
We love visiting its largest (and original) store in St Werburghs to refill our Ecover washing powder and fabric conditioner from its large containers. Then it’s a look around the booze section, filled with local beers and spirits, before the main food shopping commences.
Better Food is proudly independent, fair trade, totally organic and manned by friendly, knowledgeable staff. It also runs frequent events including vegan chocolate tasting, organic wine tasting and workshops on ethical living, so keep your eye on their Facebook to see what’s coming up.
