Healthy places to shop on Sydney’s Northern Beaches

Our Naturopath, Amanda Harasym, has hopped on the ferry and headed to Manly and beyond to discover where to purchase local, organic produce and specialty health food products on Sydney’s Northern Beaches – there is certainly a few to choose from!


Always Organic

A delivery organic food delivery service based in the Northern beaches, but delivering to any Sydney location! Always Organic doesn’t charge for delivery, an added bonus. They have everything from fresh vegetables and fruits, to frozen products, to breads, herbs, spices, household products, and personal hygiene products. It’s a one-stop shop!

Moreish Foods, Balgowlah

A wholefoods grocer located in Stockland Shopping Centre. Houses a small cafe where they provide takeaway meals and snacks.

Ruby Lane, Manly

This cafe not only offers amazing food and coffee, but also a small selection of grocers and now hey also deliver fresh boxes of organic fruit and vegetables to the locals – as well as holding some great health and wellness workshops.

Pure Wholefoods, Manly

The perfect combination of a whole foods cafe and whole foods shop. A great selection of breakfast, lunch and snack foods, all organic and locally purchased produce where possible. Find them in the heart of Manly, conveniently located on Darley Road.

Acai Brothers Superfood Bar, Manly

Serving up the popular Acai smoothie bowl, topped with fresh granola and sliced fruit. This shop is open for breakfast and lunch, and has a cabinet stocked with organic vegan treats to grab on the go.

Fresh Blend, Manly

Open until 3 pm for breakfast and lunch, located near Manly beach. A great spot for quick, healthy food. A good mid-day pit stop whilst enjoying sunshine on Manly beach!

oFarm Organic Grocers and Cafe, Manly and Warringah Mall

Open later, until 8 pm, so you can grab some dinner items on your way home, after work. If you’d rather pick up something ‘to go’, oFarm in Warringah Mall also houses a wholefoods cafe, with a wide selection of delicious meals.

Thr1ve, Warringah Mall

Thr1ve has many locations, also in Sydney’s CBD. A takeaway cafe option based on the paleo philosophy. Quick service with a small cabinet providing treats and snacks for that afternoon slump-all healthy, of course! Open only until 3 pm for service.

Cooh Cafe and Roaster, Curl Curl

A healthy food cafe open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cooh has another location in Alexandria, closer to the CBD for any inner Sydney dwellers. They pride themselves in using fresh, whole food ingredients from local farmers to create delicious and healthy meals for their customers. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Girdlers, Manly, Dee Why & Warringah Mall

Open every day for breakfast and lunch, this rapidly expanding cafe chain is proud to use local suppliers and honest ingredients to support the community and embrace sustainability. Visit them across from Dee Why beach, in the back streets of Manly or Warringah Mall. We suggest you try their crepes (savoury and sweet options) and kombucha on tap! (pictured above)

Munchies, Dee Why

Fresh juices and salads, such as a quinoa and roasted pumpkin salad. Munchies serves up quick food near the beach, so you don’t have to travel too far for a lunch break!

Flannery’s Organic Whole Foods Market, Mona Vale

Queensland’s leading natural and organic whole foods market has landed on the beaches and is becoming the  ultimate shopping destination for health and wellness focussed locals. Offering fresh organic produce and meats, an amazing array of  natural skin care products, naturopaths offering free advice, workshops on all aspects of health and well-being, and a cafe and great take-away options. A must visit if you make your way up the coast!

Nourished Wholefood Cafe, Avalon

A great spot for a selection of wholesome foods! Nourished Wholefoods also provides takeaway options, so you can pack up the cooler and head to the nearest beach with some tasty afternoon snacks!
