Semester 2 , 2017

Current Opening Hours

We are currently closed for the holidays and will reopen on Thursday January 18th. Over the summer we are open on

Thursdays   9am - 7pm 

Pre-ordered fruit & veggie box as well as bulk & special item groceries orders are ready for pick-up every Thursday (available for members only). You will be notified when groceries bulk orders are ready for collection (this will depend on delivery frequency from different suppliers). Anyone is welcome to become a member! You can find out more about membership here


Note: Thoughtful Foods is a 100% volunteer-run shop and also your local food co-op :) This means that on occasions 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 on 0484 297 952 to check that we are open.

Volunteer Training 

Our one hour Volunteer Training session is compulsory for all new members who wish to volunteer (in whatever capacity, whether in store, at our stalls or behind the scenes!) Training sessions are currently book in only over the summer.

Any questions?  Please let us know so we can arrange a day and time that suits you! Contact:

Fruit and Veggie Boxes

These are now available every Thursday! Collection is between 2 and 5 pm. Order before Tuesday 5 pm for collection that week. Veggies can also be ordered by re-using your old slip and pushing it under the shop door, with the correct money inside. Further enquiries can be made at .

Bread Orders

We will be resuming Bread Orders for members from a new supplier - Organic Bread Bar in Darlinghurst in late February 2018. We need volunteers to pick up the bread from Organic Bread Bar and bring it to Thoughtful Foods on Thursdays anytime before 10am. If you can help, please let us know here!
