Great variety of organic products! Especially for hair and beauty. I came in looking for gluten free bars and unfortunately wasn't able to find any Lara bars or the other ones I was looking for.

Fabulous local organic whole food shop!

Stumbled upon Alara whilst wandering the streets of Bloomsbury, which was fateful because the kiddo and I were in desperate need of some organic veggies, beans and pasta for our dinner (and I'd rather support a local independent then make do at a Sainsbury's or Waitrose if I can help it). They had much more than I was expecting, and we ended up leaving...more
