Sadly, we will be CLOSING DOWN! Sat 22nd June 2024

Monday, May 20th, 2024



I am sad to announce that the time has come for me to retire. Cindy, who has been here, with me for 7 years, has decided to leave at the same time. So, it truly will be the end of an era!

I took over THE VILLAGE WHOLEFOOD STORE in November 2009.  I have really enjoyed meeting and getting to know you all and have learnt so much.  Our sector of the food industry has been through big changes, but we survived. I know that, especially since 2020 everyone has been through so much and we hope we have helped you too, over these 15 years. Thank you so, so much for your support.

Our last trading day will be Saturday 22nd June.   Please call if you would like to order anything in before we go 0208 366 5108!


The new owner-managers will be Evran and Yilmas from next door, Forty Hill Food & Wine. They have said that they are happy to keep on some of our healthier popular lines, vitamins, natural remedies and organic fruit/veg too. They will respond to your requests and may well continue our policy of ordering in, especially for you when they can. So, please JUST ASK. It’s up to you!


The Village Wholefood Store ORDERS!

If you would like us to get something in for you before we go, we are happy to do so, if we can. Speak to us now.

Last orders should be Monday 10th June, but order earlier to be sure.

Except for organic fruit and veg and Holtwhite’s Bakery, which will be Monday 17th June, to pick up that week as usual.

FAREWELL! – Come & have a drink and a chat with us! Friday and Saturday 21st and 22nd June 2024!

CLOSED Monday 24th June – We will be completing the hand over, so the shop will be closed for much of the day.
