Everyone’s heard of the benefits of healthy eating but it doesn’t stop at adding vegetables to your Thai stir fry. Getting all the vitamins and minerals that your body needs to be healthy is not as hard as you think. While it is true that most of the larger supermarket chains do carry a select range of fresh produce, due to the distance the produce has to travel to get to your kitchen, it can become damaged and well on its way towards it’s used by date before you even take it home. And not to mention the arguments for the harsh toxins that exists in supermarket produce these days…

Here’s a guide to help you find some of the best suppliers of locally grown, sustainable and organic fresh produce that Newcastle has to offer. Whether you’re looking to get in shape this summer, planning on being a little more green or, (like me) are well in need of a detox, this is the best place to start.

I’d also add Earth’s Organic Garden, a new fruit and vegie (and groceries) shop in Islington, 100 Maitland Road.

I love it!

It’s a new venture by the owner of Sunny’s (which, I believe, has also changed names to, perhaps, Earth’s Organic Garden cafe?).
