Beanies Wholefoods is helping to rebuild local food economies

We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.

About Beanies Wholefoods

Beanies is open seven days a week. Our shop is bright, spacious and accessible, with a customer car park and toilet facilities.

Fresh and bursting with colour, the grocery offers organic and non-organic fruit and vegetables, with a huge range of seasonal and specialist produce. We have the biggest independent organic veg section in the region and we work closely with local organic growers to ensure the freshest produce every day.

All our stock is vegan or vegetarian and we prioritise organic and Fairtrade products. We have fresh bread and pastries every day alongside a huge selection of wholefoods, frozen and chilled produce, snacks and store-cupboard favourites.

Our household and beauty section includes zero waste refills for home and body, bath and beauty products, eco-friendly cleaning, locally made scented candles, gifts, coffee gear, packed-lunch essentials and reusable alternatives to many household basics (straws, cotton swabs and more!). We also sell cards, traditional giftwrap and reusable alternatives.

Fair prices for farmers and artisan food producers is vital

We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.

The benefits of buying local

Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
