Just thought you might like to know that we’re not open on Good Friday, but will be open longer than usual on Saturday as our Riverford vegetable delivery will be coming then instead.
Monday’s a bank holiday too, so we’re closed again, but open – with another fresh veg delivery – on Tuesday as usual.
In store now: a brilliant selection of Easter treats, including fairtrade and organic eggs, mini eggs and big ones, chocolate chicks and eggs with eco packaging, and of course hot cross buns from our Taylors, our local bakers.
Brands include all your favourites: Green & Blacks, Montezuma, Divine and Cocoa Loco.
Flavours include: butterscotch, mint, almond praline, salted peanut butter, and sweet orange.
Just in case you haven’t been following the new products we’ve been mentioning on our facebook page, we’ll share a few of them here too!
These Munchy Seeds Omega Sprinkles will make a great addition to a lunchbox. Lightly roasted sunflower seeds, pumkin seeds, sesame seeds, rapeseeds, linseeds and hulled hemp. Gluten free, good for you, and very tasty!
Card collectors will be ready for the new cards inside these pure fruit black currant flavoured yoyos by Bear Nibbles. And these delicious rolls of gently baked pure fruit count as one of your 5 a day!
We’ve been assured that these organic spelt pretzels with sesame seeds by Biona are particularly yummy!
These Hodmedod’s products are so beautifully packaged that they’re flying off the shelves. And once you’ve finished gazing at the packaging, you can always check out a few recipes on their website: fava bean and dill puree, British whole pea masala, or parsnip and fava bean soup sound particularly good!
And by popular request, we now have Montezuma’s Sea Dog chocolate in stock, flavoured with lime and sea salt. 70% minimum cocoa solids.
Great to see the full range of one of our newer suppliers, the Somerset Cheese Company, at the Frome Farmers Market this weekend.
Cheese-maker Philip Rainbow has over 40 years experience in the business and has won awards at both national and international shows: tasting his cheeses it’s easy to understand why!
We’re so pleased to be able to offer several cheeses from the range in Bruton Wholefoods now. These cheeses are suitable for vegetarians and include goat, sheep, and buffalo milk cheese. They are all handcrafted just five miles away from us in Ditcheat.
We’ve been busy stocking the shop with lots of festive treats:
plenty of baked goods including some that are organic, gluten-free and/or dairy-free
baking ingredients, for those of you who’d rather bake your own
presents for those with a sweet tooth, again including organic, fairtrade, and dairy free treats
some great tinned sets, for edible presents with a lasting presence
and gifts with a difference, including locally made luxuries

This autumn we’ve had some great veg
some amazing fruit
some fantastic produce that’s either local or with local links
and a new chiller and shelving!
All looking good: do pop in if you haven’t seen it yet!
Harvest time is truly here, so a quick glimpse of some of the produce we’ve had in the shop.
Tia’s beans, and tomatoes, grown locally in Hadspen.
Olivia’s eggs, which travelled a few meters, not miles to get here.
Honey on the comb (and some off the comb) from Chris just a few miles away in Castle Cary.
Some wonderful plums.
And the ultimate in value: some free crab apples!
And the great, fresh produce keeps on coming in! Here are just a few of the locally grown or organic goodies we’ve had in this month.
Plant it on and grow your own basil
Organic graffiti aubergines and locally grown courgettes
Locally grown tomatoes
Just a few of the lovely fruit and vegetables we’ve had in recently – and just in now:
wonderful local honey from Chris Wright!
