Ernie brings you feel better shopping, offering you great products & more radical choices.
We believe that change is the sum of many small choices, that people & planet matter, not profit. Real people, real food, less is more, buy less, buy better - making a difference is always within reach.
Everything we sell has been chosen because in some small way it helps to contribute to a better world. You will find everything here from organic veg, household refills, niche cooking items & pantry essentials to unique gifts, handmade ceramics, local candles, speciality spirits, natural wines, craft beers & an apothecary of local herbal products both medicinal & luxurious!
Choose to shop here & choose to support artisan makers, local businesses, small batch production, organic farmers, fairtrade, social enterprises, organic producers, sustainability & reducing food miles.
We are as independent as it gets and so are our neighbours... (Ernest Cafe, Wildflower, Cobalt Studios, Flea Circus, Northern Rye, Yoga Therapies, The Biscuit Factory, Ouseburn Farm, to name just a few.)
