UPDATE: we are now back on the market every Tuesday and Saturday! As you will have seen, the hours are a bit reduced as Saffron Walden market returns slowly but surely… so, on Tuesdays we will be there in the morning (at least until midday), and on Saturdays we are there until around 2pm. We are looking forward to seeing you in the market square for a nice catch-up! – or we will see you on your doorstep, as we are continuing with our very popular delivery service – which is now open to all our customers!

Market Square AND ‘mobile market’ delivery service…
As of last month, we are pleased to say we are back to our Tuesday and Saturday markets in these latest phases of lockdown easing, and the good news is… as our home deliveries are going so well, we will also continue with our delivery service indefinitely! Our delivery days and times are: all day on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and in the morning on Fridays!

Physical distancing measures…
For both our Tuesday and Saturday markets, there are still measures put in place by the council regarding physical distancing – this may mean being in a queue to see us. To try and plan for this, we are encouraging customers to pre-order and collect from us, which hopefully means customers won’t have to wait too long. Quite a few of our customers have already started placing pre-orders (see info below), and we’re pleased to see it’s working very well so far!

Making pre-orders for collection…
If you would like to pre-order with us, please place your order a few days ahead of each market and we can have everything ready for you to collect – place pre-orders by Thursday afternoon for collection on the Saturday market, or by Sunday afternoon for collection on the Tuesday market. Please use our order form and email it to us at saffronwholefoods@gmail.com – don’t forget to also include your phone number so we can call you.

Product updates…
We have managed to maintain good supplies these last few months, and we are pleased to say we are now back to full capacity… we only have a couple of products making a slow return to our stores! You will find both our price list and order form on the Products page.

Recipes…
We will continue to share some of our recipes… nice, easy ones! Check out our Recipe page to see what we’ve been making! This week we have a delicious recipe for Super quinoa salad, with added sprouted buckwheat for a gluten-free healthy lunch!

Last but not least… thank you, thank you!
We couldn’t have done this without your amazing support, care and loveliness, and we would like to say (again) a HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to each and every one of our brilliant customers who have continued to support our local family business through these extraordinary times. We feel very lucky to have such lovely customers, friends and family – and you have ALL made our very busy times here recently at Saffron Wholefoods both joyful and uplifting!
