Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2018: Entries now open

In 2018 Farm Shop & Deli Awards will enter their 5th year in recognising, and celebrating, the very best standards in the UK’s independent, specialist retail market

With an expert panel of judges joining Nigel Barden Chair of Judges, the prestigious Awards will celebrate the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement from entrants from across the UK and Northern Ireland.

These Awards really are a great way for retailers and their customers and community to get involved together. The 2018 Awards are open for online entries now until 30th September 2017, with the finalist announcement in early March 2018. Category, Regional and overall ‘Retailer of the Year’ winners will be revealed live on stage by Nigel himself, at the Farm Shop & Deli Show on Monday 16 April 2018. Enter online at

The 2017 Awards received over 3,400 online votes during the consumer voting stage, and the final in April 2017 was attended by more than 120 visitors supporting the 55 category and regional finalists. Keelham Farm Shop Ltd cleaned up at the ceremony, proudly taking home a hat-trick of awards: Farm Shop Large Retailer of the Year, sponsored by Lakeland Computers Ltd, their regional award (North East) and the coveted Farm Shop & Deli Retailer of the Year Award for 2017!
