A gorgeous cornucopia of veggies and fruit... and now with more flowers!

This merchant of multicoloured produce is the place to go if you need to load up on your vits and minerals. The shop stocks all kinds of organic goodies from across the globe, but is a staunch supporter of local food producers too. They're also particularly responsible, waste-wise. Buying in their produce daily, they encourage their punters to do the same in order to reduce waste. They're always on hand to advise customers on their shopping lists, and firmly encourage those in the shop to try before they buy. There's an outpost of this wee haven on 1137 Argyle Street, too.

If you stumbled upon this fruity little number while seeking out recommendations for a place to do your food shop, you're in luck. Once a year, The Skinny hosts an annual Food & Drink Survey in which we ask our readers to vote for their favourite restaurants, cafes, pubs and food and drink shops. As well as picking up awards in 2016, 2017 and 2018, this year Roots, Fruits and Flowers landed an award within the Best Food and Drink Shop section along with the likes of Lupe Pintos and Real Foods. Have a read of the full winners from the 2019 survey here.

In order to put the victors of the Best Food Shop and Best Place on-the-go categories to the test, The Skinny's Food & Drink team compiled an enormous uber-sandwich which boasted layers made up from ingredients bought at all your favourite food shops and on-the-go places. Take a look at that very sandwich, and simultaneously get the lowdown on all the best food spots in town. Don't say we don't spoil you.
