Join the Thoughtful Family

Current Opening Hours

Tuesday: 9:30 - 5:00

Wednesday: 9:00 - 12:00

Thursday: 9:00 - 7:00

Pre-ordered organic fruit & veggie boxes are ready for pick-up every Thursday (available for members only). Members receive discounted prices on all 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 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 held on Wednesdays at 10 a.m.

Not available on a Wednesday?  Let us know so that we can arrange a day and a time to suit 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

Bread must be ordered during shop hours in the week prior to collection, and will be available for pickup on Thursdays. Our bread comes from the lovely team at Organic Bread Bar in Darlinghurst. There is a product list in the shop. 



Our new location is on the UNSW campus, on the north eastern end of the Blockhouse.
