Semester 2 , 2016

Current Opening Hours

We are open again for the new university semester, currently the only day we are open is Thursdays 9 am - 7 pm, but hope to announce extra opening times soon.  

Pre-ordered fruit & veggie box as well as bulk groceries orders will be happening every Thursday (available for members only). Anyone is welcome to become a member! You can find out more about membership here

 Note: Thoughtful Foods is a volunteer run shop :) This means opening hours can change at shorter notice than you might expect with other shops. While we try to keep the information here as up to date as possible, if your trip to Thoughtful requires you to go out of your way we encourage you to ring ahead and check that we are open.


Mural Competition


We are running a Mural Competition to spruce up the big, white wall to the left of our entrance so that it matches our new shelves & dispensers!

Crowdfunding Campaign:

We raised 75% of our $9,500 Crowdfunder goal - $7,125! 

A huge THANK YOU goes out to all of our supporters who generously donated - cash, as well as time & energy. It was all well-spent, helping us spread the word & gain much-needed support to help us through a difficult & expensive relocation. We had over 100 people donate ! See the list here for some of our awesome supporters. 

Now, it's "out with the old & in with the new" as they say! We will be spending the money raised over the summer, ticking items off the "Santa list", filling out the rest of our new space with inviting & easy-to-use food dispensers by next March! Because shopping at a food co-op like ours does not need to be difficult or daunting, and the more co-op shoppers, the merrier -for everyone & everything from our farmers, workers, beautiful land & environment, to you - our members & friends!
