Free to enter, the Farm Shop & Deli Awards, in partnership with The Grocer, are highly respected in the industry for playing an important role in supporting, and celebrating, the UK’s independent, specialist retail market across nine regions and 12 categories.

For 2021 our Awards are all about showcasing the regional champions of this year.
Over the last few months, we have heard so many wonderful stories on how specialist retailers have gone above and beyond to help their community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
That’s why, for the 2021 Awards, we’re looking to shine the spotlight on those retailers who deserve recognition for their courageous commitment shown to their customers, community, staff & suppliers.

During October we ran our nomination campaign inviting customers and suppliers to nominate their local specialist retailer and tell us why they should enter the Awards.

Our reputation. Your success.
The Awards organiser, William Reed, has been helping businesses succeed since the launch of The Grocer in 1862 and the drive to inform and serve their sectors flows through everything they do today. The Farm Shop & Deli Awards are no exception and, for the past eight years, they have celebrated, and supported, the speciality retail market by utilising their reputation and reach in the sector.
“We are a very long established business, we have been here for almost 200 years. The Farm Shop & Deli Awards were worth entering because it doesn’t matter what you do in your advertising, you can advertise in any paper and magazine, but when an outside body says ‘these guys are going it right, these guys are good’ it’s worth ten times any of that.”
