BREADOur bread comes fresh twice a week (Mondays and Saturdays) from Blue Sky Baker of Hebden Bridge. They produce lovely artisan-made European bread, all slow fermented, vegan, etc. Unfortunately we cannot currently offer any organic, gluten-free or wheat-free breads. We take orders.
Jane Crawford of HB Flour Mill in Hebden Bridge makes Pennine Pasties specially for us. They are utterly delicious not surprising as the ingredients are always excellent. We offer five pasty varieties at present: the Keralan potato curry (mildly spiced south Indian curry with coconut milk), Mushroom & celeriac, Pennine Pasty (like Cornish only MUCH nicer and no meat, of course), Cajun spicy bean with spices from southern America, and Jalapeno & cheese pasty (yes, this is vegan and is totally delicious), plus Sosage rolls (with Linda McCartney's vegetarian sausages in a tomato sauce). They are all vegan (not gluten-free) and are a good size. They are sold hot from the pie warmer.
£2.50 for the pasties and £2.00 for the Sosage roll.
ORGANIC OILSWondering which oils are the best for you? There has been much comment in the media over the past couple of years about the health benefits or otherwise of the different oils we eat. Here's our short summary that attempts to make sense of it all: Which oil?.
Naturally we also sell a range of organic oils in-store such as rapeseed, olive (including extra virgin), coconut, hemp and flax oils.
Wharfe Valley cold-pressed rapeseed oil
Unlike many cheaper rapeseed oils, Wharfe Valley does not use chemicals during harvesting. The oil is extracted by pressing once, without heat or chemicals. Rapeseed has the lowest saturated fat of any culinary oil (less than half that of olive oil) and ten times more omega-3 than olive oil. It is safe to cook with at high temperatures. And it is grown just over the hill from Haworth!
£5.99/500ml, £3.99/300ml + chilli.
FRUIT & VEGAll our fruit and vegetables are organic, freshly delivered from Organic Pantry in Tadcaster. We supply organic veg boxes to order, and will be starting our delivery service of these from the beginning of September. See the 'Veg boxes' page for more details.
In season we are very happy to stock locally produced fruit and vegetables grown in the Haworth area.
From spring 2017 we are able to supply our customers with vegetables grown really locally by the Bradford Community Environment Project which is centred in Wibsey Park and Keighley. This is a non-profit-making community-based social enterprise, run mostly by volunteers working with vulnerable people. They use the Council's now redundant polytunnels and growing spaces. They grow organically, but don't have certification. Starting with regular deliveries of salad leaves at the end of February, we're hoping to steadily expand our range of produce from this excellent organisation.

We also stock a good selection of non-dairy milks, and lots of nuts and seeds, which we often buy in bulk and bag up ourselves, and which are excellent value.
KEFIRKefir, kephir or búlgaros is a fermented milk drink made with kefir 'grains'. You may have seen it recommended on TV's 'Trust Me, I'm a Doctor' as the clear winner of a trial to find the product that increased the population of beneficial gut bacteria the most in a group of volunteers. With each year it becomes clearer that having a healthy and diverse 'micro biome' in your digestive tract is essential for good overall health providing resistance to disease, including cancer, and good uptake of nutrients in food. It also makes the development of allergies and intolerances less likely.
We stock Nourish Kefir and Rhythm Kefir, in dairy and coconut milk varieties which are available in the fridge. We also stock sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha, which have similar qualities.
SEAWEEDSeaweed is a superfood full of nutrients that packs a variety of health benefits. It is high in iodine, magnesium, calcium, omega 3, vitamins B12, A and C, and almost as rich in protein as legumes. Atlantic Kitchen Seaweed is dried and ready for adding to your favourite dishes.
APPLE CIDER VINEGARThe benefits of taking apple cider vinegar, especially with 'the Mother'*, have long been widely known. Containing potassium and enzymes, cider vinegar is reputed to be helpful in a wide range of health issues including stomach and digestive troubles, colds and sore throats, high cholesterol, leg cramps, bad breath, assisting weight loss... even getting rid of dandruff! But most importantly it has been shown to help balance blood sugar levels and reduce the likelihood of diabetes. It's best to take a couple of tablespoons daily, diluted with water and sweetened with honey if preferred.
TIP: A lovely refreshing summer drink is to mix a couple of spoonfuls of apple cider vinegar with sparkling water and slices of ginger and lemon. Surprisingly delicious!
Haworth Wholefoods stocks the excellent Biona Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with 'the Mother'* at £2.89. Refills are available for £2.45.
* This is apple cider vinegar that has not been heat-treated and still has the culture of beneficial bacteria that turns regular apple cider into vinegar in the first place.
MAGNETIC BRACELETSThese attractive magnetic bracelets are made from stainless steel and contain high-strength magnets which are believed to help blood circulation and reduce rheumatism. They come in lots of different styles, and styles suitable for men and women. £25.50 each.
