Fresh Garbage, known to some as simply "Fresh" or "The garbage shop" and named after the lead track on the first album by US 1960s group Spirit; is an independent music merchandise store based in 24 Rosemary Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland.[1] It sells products such as band t-shirts, belts, wrist bands, jewellery, and hair dyes. The store was founded in 1969, most likely as an outgrowth of the hippie movement.

The store primarily caters to those involved with or fans of music genres such as metal, rock, punk and emo. It is described as being fairly small, and often has incense burning whilst it is open.[2] It is described by as now being a "firm fixture in Belfast".[3]

In late January 2015, Fresh Garbage was ordered to stop selling bongs and all other smoking paraphernalia to adults by the Police Service of Northern Ireland, and given one week to comply.
