What We are All About
In 1991 Mary-Ann and Mark Shearer opened their first shop in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. It was called “Mary-Ann’s Wholefood Emporium” – It started out as a health food store supplying preservative-free dried fruit and light vegetarian meals and the dream was to have a place filled with ‘natural’ foods, clothing, furniture, energy-saving gadgets and a whole host of eco/natural lifestyle products.
Here at Mary-Ann’s we pride ourselves in bringing our customers the absolute best quality products available with minimum carbon footprint.. even our packaging is made from plants..cellophane is made from tree cellulose and can bio-degrade in your compost heap.
Who are we
We, Mark & Mary-Ann Shearer, married since 1977, with 3 daughters and 5 grandchildren have been free from so-called ‘normal’ ailments like allergies, hay fever, tonsillitis, ear-infections, indigestion, IBS, high blood pressure, depression, mood swings and weight problems, since 1986. All due to a simple and natural way of living.
