So delighted this week to see lots of lovely new vegetables arriving from Riverford Organics! Great to have the first asparagus, broad beans, spring onions, flat beans, and jerusalem artichokes in the shop.
We’ve also got a fantastic selection of fresh herbs and spices, with coriander (either loose or still growing in it’s pot), fresh turmeric root, marjoram and several varieties of basil. Plus the freshest salad ingredients you’ll find: pea shoots still growing and ready for you to snip just when you need them! Our pots of herbs are grown specially for us in Lusty Farm, Bruton, and so could hardly be more local.
Marjoram and two sorts of basil
And don’t forget we still have big favourites: spring greens, purple sprouting broccoli and curly green kale in too: grab them while you can!

Whether you’re still on the hard stuff…

…prefer to concoct your own pick-me-up…
…or need something more specific…
…we’re here to help!
Look forward to seeing you soon!
Just wanted to share this WONDERFUL Christmas card we received…
Unfortunately we didn’t actually have a portable outlet delivering to the whole world on Christmas Day, but maybe it should be our aim?
Maybe we’ll stick with ‘Veggies For All’ in 2015! ;-)
And thank you so much Toby, Celine, Charlie, Arion and Ellie – we love you too! x

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
and some generally good things!
