~ SMC’s Guide to Health Food Stores ~

Sydney

Alfalfa House  113 Enmore Road, Enmore NSW 2042

This is a great little co-op where they have fresh, bulk and packaged produce. Bring your own jars to save the environment and $$ that you pay for brown paper bags. You can become a lifetime member for $20 and then receive 10% discount on every purchase. The Blue Mountains Raw Honey is to die for.

Honest to Goodness  Alexandria Industrial Estate, Unit D1, 46-62 Maddox Street, Alexandria NSW 2015

If you love Honest to Goodness, you’ll love their HQ Showroom in Alexandria. It’s a little tricky to find being in an industrial estate so make sure you look on the map (page in link above) before going! They have bulk serves of all their products + a great selection of cook books and selected other products.

Dr Earth Newtown  287-289 King Street, Newtown NSW 2042

I love this little store, from the organic fruit and veg, small selection of bulk foods and large selection of packaged and cold food products. SuperSale days mean you save up to 21% if you’re a member, which is free. They text you to remind you when a SuperSale Tuesday or SuperSale Weekend is coming up.

Naked Foods Newtown 195 King Street, Newtown NSW 2042

Just opened :o)

Dr Earth Bondi Junction  444 Oxford Street Mall, Bondi Junction NSW 2022

BJ often has taste testings out the front of their yummy products. Membership is free and Members Sale Day’s save you 21%

Naked Foods Bondi Junction  Shop 7 310-330 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction NSW 2022

Bulk foods galore.

Bondi Discount Vitamins  74-76 Bronte Road, Bondi Junction NSW 2022

This is a very cheap store to find your natural shampoo & conditioner, moisturiser, face & body wash and other personal care items and they have a great range of products.  Ignore the supplements that crowd their website and go for the good stuff.

Health Emporium  63 – 265 Bondi Road, Bondi NSW 2026

I love the Emporium. They are a neat lil store split into fresh organic produce and packaged products. They have take-away eats and treats and do a mean Raw Chocolate Smoothie.

Health Nuts  Shop TG04, 82-94 Darlinghurst Rd, Potts Point NSW 2011

After searching what seemed like every single Health Food Store in Sydney – Health Nuts was where I struck gold in finding some stainless steel straws! Hallelujah. They are underneath the Coke Sign near the Kings Cross Coles. A jam packed treasure trove.

The Source Bulk Foods  262 Darling Street, Balmain NSW 2041 (also other stores in NSW, VIC & QLD)

Love their Balmain store where there are bulk foods galore. Very helpful staff members. Not everything is healthy so don’t get lost in the choc-covered dried fruits (like I have done)! Bring your own jars to refill soaps, tamari, honey, olive and coconut oils.

About Life  Rozelle, Bondi Junction & Cammeray, Double Bay, Surry Hills

Great range of products in these stores and I love the in-store buffets where you can pick up a quick, cheap, delicious lunch.

GoVita Everywhere

Membership is free and they have sale days where you can save 21-40% off.

Northern Beaches, NSW

Scoop Wholefoods  14 Spit Road, Mosman NSW 2088

Bulk foods with cute packaging for gifts.

Newport Health Foods  Shop 2/355 Barrenjoey Road, Newport NSW 2106

I love this little nugget of a store. It stocks my favourite natural liquid eyeliner – Eye of Horus Liquid Define Liner  and I often pop in when I’m on the Northern Beaches to pick up a little healthy snack for the beach.

Organic Avenues  2/1 Bilambee Lane, Bilgola Plateau NSW 2107

Recommended by Lizzy Williamson.

Central Coast, NSW

Organic Plus Erina  1 Bonnal Road, Erina NSW 2250

This store is humongous! The biggest range I’ve ever seen of health food products and fresh organic produce. Salt lamps too! They have everything but the kitchen sink (and maybe they even have those!). Well worth a visit if you’re up on the Central Coast.

Canberra, NSW

Mountain Creek Wholefoods  14 Barker Street, Griffith ACT 2603

“I love Mountain Creek Wholefoods in Canberra for everything organic from gourmet food to baby clothes, They also do yummy organic takeaway lunches.” Margaret Cuthel

Melbourne, VIC

Aunt Maggie’s  Balaclava, Fitzroy, Malvern, Brunswick & Hampton stores VIC

“Aunt Maggie’s are fabulous health/whole food stores.” Claudine Rudeforth

Terra Madre  103 High Street, Northcote VIC 3070

“Organic fruit & veg at really reasonable prices plus it’s a health food/organic mini market store too. Right near Westgarth cinema.” Vanessa Fielden
