Hey there! I'm in Old Trafford near Hulme. It's a great place to be raw 'cos there's a lovely Asian supermarket on Ayres Rd, who do all the regular fruits, plus massive watermelons, chickoo, prickly pear, jackfruit sometimes, loquats, honey mangoes... etc
There's a raw food meetup on meetup.com, it's this Saturday, there are still a few places left. Very friendly gathering. I'm going, barring an act of God! It's run by a member here and a few other 30bad people go to it...

Hi there! It's a fairly distinctive shop- not the only grocery on Ayres Rd, but definitely the biggest! Shame you can't make it on Saturday, maybe next month...
Do you ever go to Freshsave in Didsbury Village? Great shop that. One of the places you can rely on getting ripe bananas almost every time. They do some good deals as well...
Yep, that's the one!
Yeah, I prefer the family run places, you get much better deals and service... and they seem less afraid to stock more interesting fruits too.
Yes, come to my meetup Matthew, we are all lovely.
I've just remembered that you already joined a while back. We are Foraging in Manchester some where on the 13th September and then the next fruit luck will be in October.
Do you ever go to New Smithfields Market? I love it there!
Hey! It's great to have came across someone who lives not too far from myself. :-)
Whereabouts do you all live? I'm in Old Trafford x
Hey :) I'm moving up to Manchester soon from Sheffield so would be great to meet up :) x
