Like the best wholefood shops, Rob and Anne’s Blasta is a true community store, a place that is loved up by locals, and that is why Blasta is one of the dynamos of Dungarvan’s brilliant food culture. As a great wholefood shop, Blasta acts as a reflection of the local food culture and, as soon as you walk into this homely space, you know that Anne and Rob know their local food culture intimately. Scan the shelves and you see the Knockmealdown heather honey, the Holo kombucha; the Aurealia cordials; the Mezze lavosh flatbreads; the superb raw milk from Frank and Gudrun up in Fermoy. Why, there might even be a box of apples picked from their own apple tree, sitting there in a box in the shop, waiting for you to choose one. Blasta incarnates the ethos and ethics of a great local shop, a place that offers great foods, and that also supports and drives the local economy. Blasta is the business, simple as that.
