Growers and preservers, we want you!

Would you like to grow or make preserves for the Green Valley Grocer? If so we'd like to hear from you.

We're looking for new suppliers who grow or produce in the Colne Valley, or anywhere within 30 miles of the shop.

If you're interested, take a look at these advice leaflets, which are designed to answer frequently asked questions. To view them just click on the attachments below. If you're having trouble viewing them simply ask a member of staff for a copy in the shop on Carr Lane, Slaithwaite.

Tax advice for suppliers is also available from the shop or on this website (in the 'growers' section).

After you've read the leaflet and had a think, let us know that you're interested and we'll talk to you in more detail about your produce and how and when we'll buy it.

If you have any questions please ask shop manager Carol or local food co-ordinator Marie-Claire Kidd and we will do our best to advise you.

(If you'd like to come to the shop for a chat about local food Thursday afternoons between 1pm and 6.30pm are best - that's when Marie-Claire is working).

We look forward to hearing from you!

Local produce

We are still looking for local growers, so if your interested in supplying the shop the please call in the shop for more details, or ring on 01484844417, and we will be happy to help, and tell you how it works.

One of the biggest problem's we have is getting English garlic, we find it very difficult at the market we go to, it's always Chinese, which we don't want, so if we can not get any from our organic supplier then we have to have Chinese, as a last resort.
So here is the challenge can anybody out there within 5 miles (we call this supper local) or 30 miles (we call this local) grow and supply the shop ?
