Did you know that September is National Organic Month? Organic produce contains fewer pesticides and is often fresher due to the absence of pesticides used to make it last longer. Not only is it better for the environment and the animals, but it is also said to have higher nutritional values too. Below we have compiled a list of the best places in Exeter to try and buy organic!
The Real Food Store is a community owned shop, café and bakery, newly situated in the centre of Exeter. All of the fresh fruit and veg that they stock are organic and GM free, with the aim to have organic options available across their entire range. The Real Food Store prioritises local produce as it is fresher, better for the environment, strengthens our local economy and tastes fantastic!
