Spotlight on Independents: Frome Wholefoods

Owned by partners Elmer and Lucia, Frome Wholefoods have been supplying the people of Frome with healthy, ethically sourced food for 30 years.

There has been a market for nutritional and sustainable food here in Frome since they opened. On a national level, a massive rise in demand for health-food has occurred over the last few years. More and more people are making the move towards a cleaner, greener and more sustainable diet.

If you’re making the transition, you may be surprised to find the range of products available. Frome Wholefoods have all the delicious foods you would expect to find and much more. An impressive range of bread, flours pulses, raw ingredients and confectionary.

As well as your kitchen cupboards, you’ll find you can stock up your bathroom cabinet too- as this shop also supplies toiletries and traditional medicines. Because it’s independent they’re able to source more locally than larger chains, which is great for the environment and economy.

The atmosphere is truly bustling and the staff incredibly helpful and well informed. If it can’t be found on the shelves they will always try and source it for you. They can also do deliveries on request. “Best ethos, best people” Frome Wholefoods is small but the assortment of goodness is vast. Lucia says- “We are a veritable tardis”
