Eighth Day, 111 Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7DU – Visit Now
A veggie co-operative that began life in town as a craft exchange and later turned into a clothes shop. Over its 30-plus trading years, the Eighth Day in Manchester slowly morphed into its current guise: a healthfood and vegan superstore that sells all manner of herbs, vitamins, supplements and natural remedies, as well as natural beauty products, food and wine. We particularly rate its fantastic marinated olives, organic cider and artisan bread,as well as the knowledgeable staff who work in the shop and are more than happy to offer advice. Downstairs, a basement cafe serves up tasty vegan meals.
