Updated 13:08 06/08/2020 – Fruit and Veg orders arrive everyday apart from Friday and Saturday during the summer months. The shop has been quieter on Thursdays and Saturdays recently for customers wishing to avoid queues. 

“Is everything organic” ? We are often asked.  No, not everything’s organic, but over the years we have  spent a lot of time working with the organic movement in the north east, and as a grocery store we specialise in certified organic produce. Our fresh farm produce is always  organic . Our fruit and veg , milk, eggs, many of our cheeses, and  local meats are organically certified.  And we support that with full range of organic groceries. But we also take great pride in the work of a number of small scale and local artisan producers, who are using organic or more sustainably sourced ingredients as part of their craft. And our customers enjoy buying quality, healthy local foods in-store.


We closed on Monday’s at present to help us catch up with orders, collections, and work in-store 



We open from 11am.  Fresh organic milk , butter, and cream from acorn dairy and eggs  are on the shelves by midday.  Some fresh locally farmed organic veg currently arrives in time for opening.  Our first  pre-order of organic fruit and veg  arrives on Tuesday during the day. and is usually fully out for opening on a Weds.  DIscounted fruit and veg lines are available at opening.
