New home, New Edinburgh Suma, Grow Wild

Moved to a new flat in Polwarth so I’m looking for a flatmate now.

Just took order of a muckle Suma order, every self respecting modern hippy buys their food in bulk from Suma, the wholesales people for all the health food shops. Probably the cheapest way to buy organic food. They have a curious attitude to potential customers, if you live near a health food shop they won’t give you an account. Of course you can always get away with using someone else’s account if you know it. I’m not sure what possessed me to buy 5kg of apples but it’ll be interesting finding things to do with them.

I’ve ordered a fortnightly fruit and veg box from Grow Wild to further reduce my need to ever leave the flat. Quite disappointed, you don’t get much for your 10 quid, there’s no tatties and none of the produce seems to be paticularly local. We were getting much more from East Coast Organics but they have an even worse website.

  1. I don’t know if they deliver in your area but bellfield organics are quite good, they are based in Fife but deliver as far as Falkirk. We stopped getting fruit as it was all imported but the veg was generally excellent and all locally grown. They are on the web at

  2. Whats this about suma? I am trying to join the healthy and happy generation also. I’ve heard a few people say that the veg boxes can be dissapointing.
