We make it easy for you to buy from the best independent producers across the UK, just like the ones you find at your local food market.
Farmshoplarder is an online artisan food market that delivers a curated range of award-winning British food and drink to your door. By bringing the very best UK farmers and producers together in one place, Farmshoplarder allows people to source and sample the unique tastes of farmers’ markets, foodie festivals, and Michelin-starred restaurants from the comfort of their home.
The UK is stuffed full of creative and passionate people making top quality food and drink, but it’s not always been easy to find. With Farmshoplarder we hope to open the door to a whole new world.
We work directly with independent producers and farmers who are some of the best in their field of expertise. They love what they do which is probably why so many of them produce award-winning products that taste fantastic. Why not explore some of the winners from the 2017 Great Taste Awards?
Our curated range of award-winning food and drink from small-batch producers is handpicked, giving you the best from the UK. From local farms traditionally rearing their animals, to foraged fruits from local hedgerows that go into jams and chutneys – explore award-winning food and drink from talented local producers.
Working directly with artisan producers and small farmers means you really know where your food is coming from. That’s why we don’t use third-party distributors. We hope that by connecting foodies with people who make gorgeous food, we can increase awareness and help grow those small businesses.
If you have a sweet-tooth, you’ll find everything from made-to-order chocolate brownies, to handmade preserves and marmalades, as well as gluten-free options.
If you love to buy your meat direct from local farms, we have plenty of options for you to enjoy including grass-fed lamb from Lincolnshire, venison from North Yorkshire, and succulent pork from Cornwall.
Everything on farmshoplarder.com is made in the UK, supporting local economies and communities. Just like at your local farmers’ markets and foodie festivals, we celebrate and champion high-quality food and drink made in the UK and make it easy for you to access it online.
Rebecca Lacey – Founder
Over the years I’ve stayed at B&Bs across the country and the best (in my opinion!) are always the ones that serve up thick-cut, beautifully-smoked, locally-sourced rashers for breakfast. It somehow always gets my day off to a good start!
The only problem was that once I got home, that bacon was far, far away. That got me thinking about all the other local delicacies I’d tried and how it was pretty much impossible to share those experiences with other people. There was no way for friends and family to try them too, – unless they were willing to make the same trip.
So that’s when farmshoplarder was born.
“The growth in farmers markets and foodie festivals has increased significantly, there are now over 3,500 small-scale producers and farmers within the UK ‘doing their thing’. On top of this, 80% of us now actively seeking to understand where our food and drink comes from so it felt like this was the right time to launch.”
