Late summer squashes

Every year we look forward to the arrival of the first squashes and pumpkins from our good friends at Snakehall Farm

2014 is an anniversary for The Prospects Trust who manage Snakehall Farm as they celebrate 25 years of providing work experience, training and skills on site.

The Co-op go to the coast

Each summer around the time of the longest day we pack a picnic and go to the beach after we close for the day. This year we went to Old Hunstanton

Here's what the clever people from Re-imagine Resource Centre did with our old vegetable crates!

The centre takes materials businesses don't need and makes them available for play, art, or any other creative project.

Raw Kaleslaw!

Yes, Kaleslaw... A new raw dish, fresh from our kitchen: kale and red cabbage with a cashew slaw - all prepared raw for those raw foodies out there but come quick as they're sure to fly out...

The Cambridge loaf has arrived!

We're very excited to announce the first delivery of The Cambridge Loaf, a very special bread from our friends at Cobs Bakery, and the newest addition to our range of artisan organic breads.

A brown Sourdough boasting wheat grown at Wimpole Hall, milled at Maud Foster windmill in Swaffham Prior and baked by Cobs Bakery in Cambridge, this loaf is produced all within just 30 miles.

Satisfying and balanced, we think this little bread is going places! & will be available here every Tuesday and Friday.

Fanfare please..Fair Trade Fortnight 2014 finishes today

As Fairtrade fortnight 2014 draws to a close and spring feels truly on it's way, we would like to renew our commitment to sourcing the widest range of fairly traded goodies possible for you.

Arjuna believes urgently in the influence of the consumer to bring about positive change, greater economic equality and trade justice.  We're proud to support pioneering companies of integrity like Tropical Wholefoods and Zaytoun and would like to thank you for helping us continue to do so.

The end of an era

Today feels quite historic and a little poignant for after nearly 40 years of delivering lovingly baked unpretentious bread to us, local baker Maskell's are closing.

From their comforting white tin loaf, to their rye with caraway seeds, there is a lot of affection for Maskell's, and those who love it, really love it.

The Bakery opened originally on Mitcham's Corner and baked their first loaf in 1936. Their reliable bread has been a source of nostalgia for many who have grown up in Cambridge and for those who have left.

Arjuna wish all at Maskell's well.

Cranberry and carrot is our new favourite, perfect with a hot mug of organic rooibos tea!

Seedy Sunday comes to town!

Arjuna is very happy to be supporting Seedy Sunday! A unique event in Cambridge this weekend

A seed swap but so much more, Seedy Sunday takes place at Trumpington Village Hall (Cambridge) on Sunday the 19th of January 2014 between 1:30-4:00pm.

Arjuna sells a range of organic seeds, from cabbage to kale, beans to beetroot

Bring your self-saved seeds to Seedy Sunday to exchange, or exchange your bought surplus seeds.

Meet new people, grow new varieties, and enjoy a full programme of events including

A talk by speaker Keith Jordan (The Joy of Seeds 2:00pm)
