Pre-ordered organic fruit & veggie boxes are ready for pick-up every Thursday (available for members only). Members receive discounted prices on most in store items and can also bulk order individual products. You will be notified when your 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 Induction

Our one hour volunteer induction is compulsory for all members who wish to volunteer (in whatever capacity, whether in store, at our stalls or behind the scenes!) Regular sessions are up running Saturdays at 12 noon after August 1. To reserve your spot contact: 


Fruit and Veggie Boxes

These are now available every Thursday! Collection is between 2 and 5 pm. Place your order at till till during opening hours 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 before the 5pm cut off. Contact for more info.


Bread Orders

Bread must be pre-ordered and prepaid during shop opening hours. Our bread comes from the lovely team at Organic Bread Bar in Darlinghurst. There is a product list in the shop. Get your order in before 5pm on Tuesday for delivery on Thursday that week after 11.30 am.



We are located on the UNSW campus, on the north eastern end of the Blockhouse.
