Nourish Speciality Greengrocers is packed with premium produce, supplying locals with field-fresh fruit and veg, luxurious cakes and pastries, salad bowls from Glasgow’s well-loved Sprigg, in addition to numerous speciality items for the pantry such as handmade pestos and pastas.
Luxury brands such as Nonya Secrets are also available at Nourish Speciality Greengrocers - ones that were previously found only in the likes of Selfridges and Harvey Nicholls.
Additionally, Nourish has a choice selection of artisan wines and craft beers, as well as take-away Dear Green coffee.
It's a real step forward for the fine food market in central Scotland.
As the name suggests, Nourish is all about providing high quality, healthy food - and the shop was born from a delivery service doing just that in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic.
Founders Greg Kelly and Richard Wallace began supplying their neighbours with fresh veg boxes when supermarkets couldn't provide delivery slots.
Following a huge surge in demand, Greg and Richard launched an official delivery service in April 2020, providing fruit and veg boxes to customers from Lanark to Glasgow.
A few months later, Nourish had grown large enough to secure a retail unit across from Chatelherault Country Park.
Co-founder Greg Kelly said: “We’re thrilled to have opened our fine food grocer after months of hard work.
"It’s a great feeling to be making our favourite speciality products more accessible and creating our own community of people who are passionate about food.
"We want people to enjoy the full experience at our store, from shopping the latest produce, to picking up salad bowls, cakes and coffees to go.”
Nourish is Pending B Corporation, which means that it is taking steps to be recognised officially as managing its social and environmental impact sustainably.
Zero waste shopping sections are present throughout the store, and much of the produce comes from the surrounding farms, which reduces environmental impact.
A proportion of products is also donated to local foodbanks and partner Healthy Valleys.
Co-founder Richard Wallace added: “A key part of our business is donating part of our profits to our local food bank.
"This allows them to host virtual cooking courses and help families incorporate more healthy meals within their diet.
"Social and environmental impact is at the heart of everything we do and with thanks to our customers for supporting our business, we can give back to our community in these various ways.”
Nourish Speciality Greengrocers can be found at 3 Allanton Gardens, Ferniegair, ML3 7GQ. It is open 10-6pm Sunday-Thursday and 10am-8pm Friday-Saturday.
