Milk & More Milk Delivery

I do my main grocery shop at the Daylesford Farm Shop near me where I buy organic meat and loose vegetables.

I buy store cupboard staples from the organic shop in Chelsea called Here – the apple cider vinegar and maple syrup I buy from here both don’t have the plastic dripper attachment. And my local fish monger and cheese shop are on the walk there.

And bulk items such as dry goods, spices, popcorn etc I buy from either The Dry Goods Store, As Nature Intended or Wholefoods Market around London.

Wine and beer refills are becoming more popular in London! Hooray! I currently use either Borough Wines or Wholefoods in Fulham for the wine and hope to buy beer soon from We Brought Beer in Clapham using one of their reusable growlers.

Places I mentioned to buy loose leaf tea:

The Dry Goods Store
My Cup Of Tea
The London Tea Exchange
Algerian Coffee Store

Places to shop zero waste or in bulk in London:
The Dry Goods Store
As Nature Intended
Wholefoods Market
E5 Bakehouse
Unpackaged at Planet Organic in Muswell Hill
