For anyone yet to discover them, Real Foods have been offering natural, organic and vegetarian food in Edinburgh since 1975. They are also Scotland's largest retailer of Fair Trade foods.
Between their flagship store on Broughton Street and another on Brougham Street (Tollcross), they stock an impressive range of organic fare, ready-to-eat food and ingredients unlikely to be found in your run-of-the-mill supermarket chains. They also have the best selection of free-from foods around, for all you gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free and whatever-else-free you may be folk. With daily offers available too, you can rest assured that you'll leave the store with both a happy purse and a happy belly.
Real Foods is also a bit of a winner with our readers. Every year, The Skinny hosts a Food & Drink Survey where we pick your bains for your favourite eating, drinking and food shopping spots. Real Foods has stood victorious for several years, as one of our readers' favourite Food & Drink Shops from 2014 right through to 2019. Check out the full list of winners from this year's survey to find out where exactly you should be heading to get your organic teabags, vegan snacks and seasonal veggies.
