We're still reducing plastic waste...
We are very pleased to have installed a range of self-service cannisters for our customers to help themselves to basics such as oats, muesli, nuts and seeds (see photo). You can either use the paper bags provided or bring your own containers, and we will weigh them for you at the till. These bulk foods are all organic, and we are keeping our prices as low as we can.
We also really like our new REFILLable canvas bags being modeled here by our colleague Virginie. They are strong and hold a lot of shopping! Every time a customer uses one of the new bags to do their shopping we will give them an extra loyalty card stamp. It's our way of helping to reduce plastic waste!
Healthy vegan curries
We have started stocking authentic healthy vegan curries in the freezer from Chef Akila. These gourmet curries are locally made with excellent ingredients and less salt, sugar and fat (and therefore fewer calories) than other curries. Feedback after tastings has been superb. Eleanor and Jo, for example, told us: "It was absolutely delicious... a perfect blend of spices... such flavour... mouthwateringly wonderful and healthy too... huzah! We do hope you'll stock them... they really are a delicious treat."
We have the Chef Akila menu on the counter and customers who order online and use 'Sally' as a discount code will get 10% off! More information: www.chefakila.com/vegan/
Free tasting eventWe have just started stocking sauerkrauts, kimchi and kombutcha from Loaded Table, which is run by Rachel in North Yorkshire. If you've always wanted to find out more about these fermented foods, then now's your chance. On Sunday 19 August 2018, between 1.00 and 3.00 pm we are hosting an exclusive 'tasting' where you can chat to Rachel herself about the benefits of fermentation and try the delicious ranges available for sale. Booking is not required and the event is free. We look forward to seeing you!
It's the 1940s all over again… again!1940s Britain will return to Haworth on the weekend of 1920 May 2018, when the town will play host to locals and visitors alike getting dressed-up in 1940s gear and ready to have a high old time.
Yes the incredible Haworth 1940s Weekend event is back and we will be doing our usual thing of turning into a pastie shop for the duration selling our delicious vegan savoury pasties. For the first time we'll also be offering hot slices of vegan pizza from our regular supplier One Planet Pizza.
And we won't forget liquid refreshment there will be bottled water on sale from Eco for life, in bottles made from plants not plastic (and are therefore compostable), plus Fentimans botanically brewed fizzy pops, etc.
Refills range extendedAt Haworth Wholefoods we love doing refills of some of your favourite household cleaners, hand soaps, oils and cider vinegar. In light of recent publicity about the dreadful plastic pollution in our oceans (see 'Our policy on plastic') we have increased our range, and now offer refills of shampoos, conditioners, multi-surface cleaners and floor soaps. Just bring back your old bottles and we will refill them for you. SAVES MONEY AND PLASTIC/GLASS! There's a complete list of our range on the 'Refills' page under 'What we sell'.
We now stock vegan pizza!Yes, we now stock the amazing and award-winning One Planet Pizza the UK's first frozen vegan pizza company owned by the community it serves. All pizzas are 100% plant-based/vegan, and are hand-made with organic flour and tomato sauce. They feature 100% dairy-free Cheddar-style Sheese, and have added flax seed and chia seeds for Omega 3 and other health benefits.

Gluten-free breadNEW! We are delighted to be stocking a good selection of gluten-free bread from the Incredible Bakery Company.

Our café is NOW OPENFollowing persistent customer requests, we have finally branched out into café territory with one table and three chairs in the window! We are very pleased to invite our lovely customers to enjoy a cafetière of coffee, a pot of tea or a freshly squeezed juice while they tuck into their pasties, sandwiches or delicious home-made soup. The picture shows our wonderful customers Sheena and Marianne test-driving our new café section.
New pastiesOur hot pasties (pictured lower right) are bigger than before and utterly delicious not surprising as the ingredients are always excellent. They are made by the lovely Jane of HB Flour Mill, who also makes our curries and gluten-free pies. They are 'proper food', and are available in up to six varieties depending on season including Jane's 'famous' VG Yorkshire Pasty (like the Cornish one but with a twist), mushroom & celeriac, Keralan potato curry and the sosmix special rolls. And they are all vegan! And just in time for the Steam Punk Weekend!
Look what we found...Our picture shows Ecoforlife bottled water, with a bottle made from plants not plastic, and water from the New Forest. Now in store at £1.25. We love what we do!
