Loving the town I live in

I wanted to write about the town I live in and all the great foodie stuff it has to offer. Shoreham really didn’t use to be this good & it feels like fate that this beautiful town helped me on my vegan journey.


My favourite local cafe & Grocers – Ginger & Dobbs



“Our  greengrocers is stocked daily with fresh fruit and veg, local eggs and homemade bread and pastries. The caf? provides a relaxed informal environment a place to enjoy our renown local Pharmacie coffee and a delicious selection of homebaked cakes including vegan and gluten free.

Our seasonal menu is served throughout the day and on Friday and Saturday evenings we are setting up regular Supper Clubs”


I eat a lot of fruits & veggies being vegan so I get some great stuff from G&D, I can’t wait to see the beautiful produce they’ll have in this month. Think pumpkins, squash & winter vegetables.

It’s so nice to have a lovely place a stone’s throw away where I can meet friends for coffee, as a treat to myself or for when I just want to grab my fav sweet treats when it’s my time of the month. They do the best Vegan chocolate & caramel brownies!




The best vegan food store – Best Health Food Shop

“For a small health food shop, we have a big heart and try to offer as much variety   and diversity as we can in our product range, to all our customers.
Our shop sources the highest quality products at the best prices.
We also have qualified Nutritionists in store to help you with advice on food and your health.
If you cannot find what you are looking for ? we will do our very best to order it in for you and normally it will be with us the next working day.”



I come here to get Booja Booja stuff, vegan meats, cheeses, snacks, tinned food as well as cooking ingredients. They have a great selection and are always getting in new stuff. You can find pretty much anything in here and I’m a frequent visitor. I love supporting all the great vegan brands and a fantastic small local business.



east street, Shoreham – Markets

The Shoreham Farmers’ Market takes place in East Street, between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm every second Saturday of the month. The market normally has around 45 stalls selling a wide range of local fresh produce and goods.

The Shoreham Artisan Market takes place in East Street, between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm every fourth Saturday of the month. The market normally has around 30 stalls selling a wide range of local food, drink arts and crafts.


I absolutely love farmers markets and these are just around the corner from me so they’re a great way for me to get local fresh produce & unusual stuff that you cant get at your local supermarket. It’s nice to talk to the vendors about their farms & produce. It makes me feel really nostalgic about the farm I grew up on as a child.

I cant think of anything better than browsing the market on a chilly Saturday morning this time of year. Although in my case when I’ve been up writing until silly am I rush round about lunchtime ha!

               Pop-Up Supper Clubs – Tomfoolery

“Every two months, we take over the venue, transforming it into a plant-based haven for our supper clubs. Each time, we celebrate dishes from different parts of the world. This time, however, we?re bringing things home by championing the best of British seasonal dishes. Expect a meat-free take on classic, comfort food.”

I hope you’ve got to know me through where I live and if you’re vegan will visit these places as they’re really great – you won’t be sorry!



Hope you enjoyed reading about my little town.
