Champion of the World

Fantastic shop selling pretty much all your vegan essentials including pulses, seeds, spices, herbs, treats, toiletries etc, with a very good chiller section and refill station.

I picked up a packet of tvna, an Easter egg for my nephew and some reduced vegan chocolate items, whilst my wife and young son bought a heart friendship gift and a flute. Warning:- flutes should not be played in the car on the way home though πŸ˜‚.

Definitely worth visiting here, if you're in the area.

Just remembered I have visited this shop. There was nothing else in Alnwick for vegans at the time.

Vegan essentials

Great shop for all vegan essentials that are not stocked in local supermarkets like egg replacement, vego and violife cheddar flavour. The owner (I’m guessing) is very friendly and helpful.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly staff , lovely gifts

Hidden gem!

Nipped here for supplies when we were holidaying in Seahouses. One half of the shop is dedicated to food and whilst the fridge is small it’s absolutely packed with everything you’d need - cheese, bacon, chocolate - I was very happy!

It's a nice shop in a nice town

This is a nice shop selling nice things in a lovely little town in beautiful Northumberland. It's shops and towns like these that make rural places so nice to visit. The stock consists mainly of fair trade items such as bags, clothing, craft stuff and candles etc. There is one wall dedicated to foodstuffs such as fair trade, organic and vegan chocolates, condiments, mayonnaise, curry pastes, tahini, spreads, snacks and dried foods. A reasonably well stocked fridge with Redwoods products, vegan cheeses, tofu products and various meat subsitute products is at the back of the store. Things are quite expensive here but I suppose it's the only place in the town where you can get specialist items like this so you're saving by not traveling to somewhere like Newcastle or Berwick. It's worth checking out the bargain bin for nearly due date items. I will be back here again for sure.

Pros: fair trade items, specialist items, bargain bin

Cons: expensive
