I went to my old neighbourhood Shoreditch the other day to meet a friend and then dropped by Get Loose – a cute little space in Hackney City Farm, located right by the entrance.
When I mean little space, I mean it in a literal sense. What you can find here are the essentials, all 100% organic. Think nuts – pistachios, cashews, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts. Wholewheat and white pasta, gluten-free oats, white and brown rice, dried fruit and a selection of spices – all sold in bulk. You can also find organic milk in glass bottles. There are quite a few packaged items but some of the packaging is returnable and refillable. Please check their website for a whole list of items.
It’s great that this shop exists and offers some essentials but when planning your shopping, bear in mind that it’s not a one-stop destination for all your household needs. They also have some unusual opening hours so make sure you check them before heading here.
