UPDATE: The new guidelines mean the market has been reduced to essential food stalls only on Tuesdays and Saturdays– which means we will there as usual, however we may be in a different pitch to conform with the physical distancing measures that will be in place again. So, for those who are venturing out into the fresh air, we are looking forward to seeing you in the market square – however, if you prefer to spend less time in town, you can always email your order to us in advance and simply collect it from the stall. (see below for info)…

For those who are self-isolating, feel vulnerable or just don’t feel comfortable coming into town, we can see you on your doorstep instead, as we are continuing with our very popular delivery service – this is available to all our customers, however large or small your order! (see below for info)…

Market Square AND ‘mobile market’ delivery service…
We are pleased to say we have been allowed to continue with our Tuesday and Saturday markets during the latest lockdown and our home deliveries have been going really well, so we are continuing with our delivery service indefinitely! Our delivery days and times are the same: all day on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and in the morning on Fridays!

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

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, and 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!
