New products, from down the road

We've expanded the shop, and we're still expanding our range to fill it!

The Green Valley Grocer is home to several new-to-us products, including authentic spice mixes from Linthwaite, handmade toiletries from Golcar and rapeseed oil from North Yorkshire.

We also have a new range of preserves from Lily Pickles of Holmfirth. Her top sellers include hot'n'smokey chilli jam, rhubarb and orange chutney, caramelised red onion and cranberry marmalade and pear and walnut chutney.

The spice mixes come from The Spice is Right, a small manufacturer based at Colne Valley Business Park, Linthwaite. The team there mix restaurant style curry spices into handy sized packs and.... this the best bit... there's a really easy to follow recipe on the back of each pack. Mixes include tikka masala, balti, vindaloo, dopiaza and bhuna. There are also dhal and bhaji mixes for simple side dishes.

We have expanded our range of Lily Bee products to include lots of different soaps, with delicious fragrances like rosemary and spearmint, lemongrass, olive, and chamomile and neroli. And we're still stocking her fantastic honey balms and creams. Look out for the new display next to the till.

Another new addition is Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil from Malton, North Yorkshire. As well as the original oil, which is great for both cooking and salads, we're selling their flavoured oils, mayonnaise and garlic mayonnaise. For a limited time only, 500ml original cold pressed rapeseed oil is £2.99 at the GVG.

As you may know, our aim is to make sure half of our stock is sourced locally - from within 30 miles of the shop - by 2015. Please help us reach this target by looking out for local products when you shop at the GVG.
