Seems like a trip to York is in order… and not just because the Minster is lovely.
Ruth tells me of Alligatorwholefoods.com in York. They have bulk bins of Rice, museli base, plus fresh local veg and fruit etc and lots of vegan and organic provisions. Plus NO plastic bags only paper ones – encouraged to bring your own containers.More Loose Foods
