Dunedin’s Organic Store & Eatery
Taste Nature is a locally owned business run by Mark and Rayna Dickson. They are passionate about all things organic. They run an organic food store, eatery and kitchen which is a community hub for all things organic in Dunedin. The store, eatery and kitchen are based at 131 High Street. They also have a garden in Waitati which supplies the store, alongside produce and wholefoods from over seventy New Zealand suppliers. We have a strong ethos on minimising packaging, and this year won the “Keep Dunedin Beautiful – Waste Minimisation Award”.
