The Fresh Earth Food Store, Johannesburg
Did you know?
At Fresh Earth Food Store you'll find a wide range of local beauty and skin products using only natural ingredients.
The Fresh Earth Food Store is a health, vegetarian and vegan haven that is a restaurant, coffee shop, bakery and retail shop all rolled into 1. It’s the ideal spot at which to browse, shop, lunch or just drink something and catch your breath.
The store, in the Johannesburg suburb of Emmarentia, is an absolute blessing if you have a sweet tooth and crave quality chocolate and pastries, but don’t eat eggs or any animal products. It has a vegan raw chocolate mousse cake on offer that is just sensational. That’s over and above its brownies, fruit tarts, cookies and rusks. The bakery section is a must.
This vegetarian restaurant serves a daily vegetarian luncheon buffet from noon, from a cost of R72 person and up.
Favourites on the buffet include satisfying stews that feature what’s seasonal and freshest that day at the market; curries so fragrant they draw you in; refreshing salsas and salads; delicious quiches; and sweet treats.
If it’s just coffee, a slice of cake and a chat with a friend you’re after, then kick out your heels, feast your eyes on the selection of baked goodies and let your gaze wander over the vast selection of goods in the shop. Anything from guilt-free make-up, vitamins, and teas and coffees to inspiring recipe books and CDs line the shelves.
This health emporium stocks organic produce, gluten-free breads and pastries, veggie ready-meals and organic baby food under the Toddler and Baby Tastes brands. What’s more, it’s situated around the corner from an Asian spice shop, a bookstore and a greengrocer.
And thumbs up to the Fresh Earth Food Store for making donations to worthy causes such as the Salvation Army and primate care, and for recycling all its refuse.
