DSC_0593To help people make the transition to a healthier, plant-based diet, every January is Veganuary. As people who have made the transition ourselves, we @ Coachwerks Wholefoods are happy to give advice. Shopping with us is easy, as we are 100% vegan! Our shelves are a testament to the fact that a vegan diet can be varied & delicious. We have amazing breads, fantastic fresh fruit and vegetables; wonderful dairy alternative to milk, yoghurt and cheese and much more besides! We also sell a range of yummy vegan treats. Plus vegan toiletries and household products, many on refill.

We are working hard to get the shop ready in time for the Coachwerks Christmas Bazaar on Sunday 20 December, so watch this space. The walls and ceilings have been painted (using recycled paints), sinks have been put in, lights have been put up (environmentally friendly low-wattage LED bulbs, of course), the counter is in place, and the shelves will go up next. We have local suppliers lined up to provide the tastiest wholefoods, breads, fruits and vegetables.

We will be open for more hours:

Tuesday through Friday: 10am to 6pm
Saturday: 9am to 5pm

We are busy building the Coachwerks Wholefoods shop…

Over tDSC_0073he last few months, we have been busy building our wholefood shop in the Coachwerks in Hollingdean. We cleared the space, ripped out the strip lighting and installed a brand new ceiling. We got rid of the prefabricated stained glass panes, and in the process had to rebuild the entire front wall of the shop. We replaced the single door with double doors to create an inviting space. Around the back of the building, we have dug out tons and tons of earth and rubble, hoisting them over the roof one bucket at a time.

Over the next few weeks we will be putting in a new floor, painting all the walls and ceilings, putting in the shop shelves and counters and adding attractive lighting. We will put in fridges, cash registDSC_0075ers and digital scales. Finally, we will stock the shelves with a wide range of exciting foods, household products and toiletries. We have created a special shelf, with its own little window to the outside world, on which we will display all the wonderful pottery, woodwork and stonework that is being created by the artists and makers of the Coachwerks. You will also be able to purchase handcrafted ales made by our friends from Bartleby’s brewery, mere feet away.
