Food brings us together.

From family dinners to village fetes, the growing and making and eating of food is as basic to our living experience as it is to our survival. It connects us.

With the Real Food Shop, we aim to confirm and reaffirm that connection, with friendly service in an attractive (if sometimes wobbly!) space, and with food that we can talk about. We'll share as much as we can (and as much as you'll let us) about the provenance of our products, and we're always interested in hearing from you. We hope that's reflected in everything from our open shop design to our 100% return-or-refund policy if you don't like what you've bought. We want you to enjoy your shopping experience, and we want our producers' food to find and to nourish happy homes. 

With that in mind, we're commited to taking part in projects, events and groups to nourish the local community. Since 2013, we've organised the food-and-farming-friendly workshops and activities at the Children's Marquee of the Bridport Food Festival. We've also worked closely since its inception with the Communities Living Sustainably in Dorset Local Food project toward creating a sustainable food economy for the local area with Food Future Bridport. We're thrilled to be able to support and contribute to projects like Stir to Action's programme of workshops in 2015 and the Community Soup group started in in 2014 to raise awareness about useful potential uses for 'surplus' food.

In the wider community, we're proud to be a part of the Landworkers' Alliance started by small scale producers and craftspeople (including quite a few of our stalwart PEPC members!) in 2013. They in turn are affiliated with La Via Campesina, the international peasants' movement which 'defends small-scale sustainable agriculture as a way to promote social justice and dignity'.

This is the kind of growth we can get behind. 

If you have a project or group or event that you think your fellow shoppers could get behind too, bring us a flyer and let us know more. We'll happily post it and help spread the word. We'll pollinate, if you will.
