Whether it's local veg or organic rice, we are keen to show that food doesn't have to come from a supermarket! And it’s often cheaper, tastier, and better for the planet when it doesn't.


We have two stalls where you can buy your week's groceries and pick up online orders. One every week in the Gordon Aikman Lecture Theatre basement. The Gordon Aikman stall is open 11 - 17. We sell locally sourced, organic veg and organic dried foods, eggs and bread both online and at our stall. Pop by to get some bargain rice, nuts, pulses, dried fruits, peanut butter, jam, tinned tomatoes, and heaps more available only at the stall. Members can also make a custom order from the GreenCity catalogue, tips on how to do this are on the website: http://heartysquirreledinburgh.weebly.com/, or please come by the stall for a chat. We also do a veg bag scheme, selling an assortment of local, organic, tasty vegetables to the university community at cost price.

Please do get in touch if you're interested in helping out with the dried foods and local veg stall on Thursdays. It's heaps of fun and we are always in need of volunteers to keep these exciting foodie ventures going, so hopefully see you soon!
