Asparagus soup recipe

Before the end of the asparagus season, I thought it might be nice to do a recipe that includes the best Formby can offer, or some sprue as an alternative!


Deli section at the rear of the shop

We now have a deli section at the rear of the shop. We stock a range of international foods, ranging from Europe to Asia, both fresh food and store cupboard essentials.


Quality fresh produce


Come and see us in the shop, we have a wide range of produce and if you are looking for anything specific, ask and we can get it for you.



recipe of the week

We are now offering a recipe of the week in store, and online, which will provide a list of ingredients you can buy from us and from other shops in the village, plus the method to take home and prepare it. We know it’s difficult sometimes to think about what to cook, so it’s our little way of offering a suggestion.
