I was super excited to finally be able to visit The Stores West End and can now confirm that it is definitely a VIP (Very Important Place) to put on your to-do lists!
Located not to far from the West End Markets, The Stores is a more so permanent version of the markets. You can expect local products and honest ingredients all within the one place.
The Stores claims to be a foodies paradise and there is no way that I can disagree with that! There is literally everything you could ever need (and more) in the one place.
It’s colourful, its authentic, there’s organic and theres gluten free – vegans, paleo friends and lovers of gourmet are all able to find a delicious range of products for their everyday needs.
Peter and Melinda Schulte are the family behind it all, and boy do they have some knowledge of high quality produce that they clearly used to bring it all together. They have clearly made all the vital connections within the industry to showcase some of the best, and most delicious, options for their store.
The highlights for me? The Olive Man’s dips and olive range, because they use olive oil and sunflower oil blends instead of the nasty, inflaming and seriously unhealthy canola and vegetable oils, the Cheese room and of course, The Source Bulk Foods.
For me, a bulk food store is a girls best friend and I would rather spend my money there than on diamonds anyday! Literally EVERYTHING you could ever need for a health kitchen and plenty of treats for everyone too!
Pop in to grab your favourite groceries before or after an incredible coffee from London Fields – whom have 100% mastered their decor and their menu! Their coffee was the perforce accompaniment to all of the little taste testers I enjoyed of the produce and it’s safe to say that I am fast going to become a regular!
