The Farm Shop & Deli Retailer Awards 2024

The Retailer Awards are now closed for entries - good luck to all our entrants!

Free to enter, the Farm Shop & Deli Retailer 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 11 categories.

This year, the awards will be celebrating specialist retailers and recognising their achievements in the independent sector.

No matter how large or small your steps may be, or what financial investment you have made, if you’ve demonstrated the above in your business, then we want to hear about, and celebrate, it!


Our 2024 Awards:

  • New for 2024: We are going to be celebrating retailers across 11 specialist retailer categories from Bakers and Butchers to Deli’s and Food Halls. 
  • We have changed our regions and are now offering seven 'Best in Region' awards.
    Take a look at the categories and regions here.
  • We're pleased to announce our Retailer of the Year accolade will be awarded again this year.
  • Plus, for any new businesses that opened after 1st January 2022, the judges will be looking to nominate entrants to win our ‘Newcomer of the Year’ award.

There is a wealth of information for retailers in the 'About' section at the top of this page.

Entries are now closed and our judging took place in October and November. The finalist announcement will be released in early March.


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 Retailer Awards are no exception and, for the over ten 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.”
