The Shop

We want everyone in our community to find what they need at Dig In.

That’s why we do our best to keep our shelves full of affordable, good food and the household items you need most. Whether you love cooking with your family and friends or you are looking for something simple for tonight’s dinner, we have a full range of fresh, chilled and wholefoods to make it easy for you to find what you need at your local shop.

As a retailer, we are committed to doing our part to reduce food and household waste. Almost all of our produce is available without packaging, so that you can choose to purchase only what you want and will use.

We also provide a 30% discount on ‘Yesterday’s Bread’ and have a ‘Reduced Basket’ for produce that would be great in a soup, stew or baked treat.

Fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs

Dig In works with local and regional producers and suppliers to stock a wide range of fresh fruit, vegetables, herbs and eggs. We work hard to bring as much Scottish produce to our shelves as we can, and we’re always looking for local suppliers of your favourite fresh produce.

You’ll find organic fruit and vegetables on your left when you come into the shop, and the rest of the front room is filled with fruit and veg from across the UK, Europe and the world. Don’t forget to ‘Dig In Deeper’ to find the carrots, potatoes and onions in the back!

One thing you won’t find in our shop is a lot of packaging. We stock loose items of your favourites so that every customer can decide how many apples, carrots, leeks and bananas to buy. This helps us all to cut down on waste and helps you to buy only what you want.

Wholefoods Pantry

Beyond the front shop and past the shelves of fresh bread, you’ll find a second room full of pantry staples, biscuits & snacks, chilled items and household goods.

We pack a lot into a small space, and we’re always doing our best to update our stock to find the most affordable and tasty options available. Check in regularly to see what’s new in store, and let us know if there’s something you’d like us to bring to our shelves.

Freshly Baked Bread

We receive daily deliveries of freshly baked bread. Bakery Andante in Morningside and Breadshare Community Bakery in Portobello are committed to using only the best ingredients, without additives, and that’s why we’ve chosen to work with them.

Loaves vary each day, so stop by to see what’s fresh in store.


One important thing to look out for in our shop is our team of volunteers wearing green aprons. We simply couldn’t keep bringing good food to you on the high street without the commitment of our local volunteers.
