“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 are now closed on Monday’s  to help us catch up with orders and work in-store .
