Village Greens – Organics in the North

So we live in the North of the city. It’s different in the North due to the universities and their students, the south of the city is better served by buses, and has more cafes and organics.

But something is changing all around the city and in Prestwich we now have an organic vegetable shop, Village Greens.

It’s a co-operative, in fact I’m a shareholder, I’ve not once been to a meeting but I wanted to be able to access organics and similar things without travelling to town or Chorlton. I’ll be honest I don’t go as often as I’d like, but it’s good to know I can.

I have gotten into bad habits with my fruit loving son, I don’t feel as badly letting him munch the treats we buy here before we get a chance to wash them.

It is an exciting shop with lots of special treats, I’m always pleased to try new things. I was delighted the other day when I was able to buy a slice of puff ball mushroom, sadly my boy hates mushroom and was less keen, but told me next time I could eat it all myself. I guess I will.
