Nude Foods – Cape Town’s first plastic free grocery

Nude Foods

If there’s anything that really gets me going it’s seeing fresh produce packaged to death and seeing water being served with straws at restaurants. Enter Nude Foods, Cape Town’s first plastic free grocery! This small inner-city grocery sells a variety of wholefoods, health foods and earth-friendly products and yes, they even sell bamboo and glass straws! The idea is that you take your own containers so that single-use plastic and unnecessary packaging is eliminated. If you don’t have your own container, they do sell glass jars and bottles, pure cotton, reusable dry goods bags as well as mesh bags for fresh produce and free brown paper bags.

On the food side, you’ll find nuts, cereals, grains, dried herbs, the most delicious looking granola, fresh pasta, Camphill yoghurts, eggs… and the list goes on. If you’re wanting fresh produce, the best days to visit are on Wednesdays and Fridays when they get their deliveries. They have a variety of oils, vinegars, kombucha and tahini all on tap as well as nut butter machines where you can make your own zero-waste nut butter!

In addition they also sell natural laundry powder, epsom salts, dishwashing liquid, multi-cleaners and soaps. I love the idea of refilling my liquid hand soap bottles here. Nude Foods is situated just off Harrington Street and the whole area is suddenly on the rise so pop down and explore.

      I knew it would be just up your street! It’s just around the corner from New York Bagels, so you can do a juice run and shop at the same time 🙂
