Opening Hours:

We sell a range of groceries, mostly organic, and pride ourselves on competing with the major supermarkets and brands on price. Where we can, we offer British and local options. Currently everything in store is vegan, except for the sustainably and responsibly sourced honey.

Cleaning products and toiletries are available as refills - these are from ethical companies Greenscents and Miniml and we operate a fully closed loop system with both suppliers, returning barrels to be refilled. 

We sell a range of items in the following categories: 



Rice & Grains


Baking Supplies


Fruit & Seeds

Liquid foods

Cleaning Products


Sweets & Chocolates

Herbs & Spices


Bottles & Jars



A full price list is available

4 Years - 2022

We are Kate and Pete (and Hope), and are proud to be part of the Taunton & Somerset community.

We want to give the people of Taunton a positive option for shopping ethically, organically and packaging free.

We see Lesser Litter as part of the solution to the huge environmental issues we, as a community and as a planet, face. 

We believe in reusing packaging, circular supply and supporting sustainable organic farming practices. 

Shopping ethically should be accessible for everyone. We firmly believe this should be more economical, both for the individual and for the environment
