Since 1980, Bumblebee Natural Foods has set out to sell natural food, remedies and household products that are healthier for you and healthier for the environment.
The Veg Shop
Working with suppliers we’ve known for years we’re able to trace the origin of all our fruit and vegetables. We source as much local and seasonal produce as possible, all of which, including foods from further afield, are certified organic.
Our cheese counter, filled with organic and farmhouse cheeses, takes centre-stage in our dairy section. We have a large selection of yogurts, butters and ice creams, with lots of vegan options.
Covering one wall is our extensive range of teas. Opposite, we have jars of loose tea, coffees, herbs & spices from floor to tip-toe height. We buy in bulk, selling the herbs by weight so we can pass the saving on to you.
Among the many eco-cleaning products is our refill station: Bring and refill your empty bottles with environmentally-friendly washing-up and laundry liquids
The Nut Shop
The Nut Shop, the go-to store for your kitchen cupboard: Dried fruits, nuts, oils, condiments, jams and honeys, and a lot, lot more.
And then there’s supplements and bodycare. All here.
Here’s where you’ll find the essentials. The self-selection nut counter provides a wide assortment of raw and roasted nuts and seeds. We also have macadamias, raw pistachio kernels, tiger nuts, mulberries, barberries, goji berries, chocolate covered brazils, ginger & coffee beans and much, much more, as well as a wide variety of organic nuts, seeds and superfoods.

We stock chocolate galore including Green & Blacks, Montezuma, Booja Booja, raw cacao and carob. And not to forget our sugar-free confectionery, snacks, natural energy drinks and juices.
Our organic wine selection is well worth a look. All our wines are vegan in provenance and we have one of the most extensive collections of sulphur-free and low-sulphur offerings. Did we mention our biodynamic wines, or our organic champagne, beer and cider?
