What Are Refill Stores?

Bulk buy or refill stores are places you can buy food loose.You take as much as you want/need from a larger container and you can usually use your own packaging.


While these shops provide bags and they are almost always plastic ones. You will need to take your own plastic-free /reusable bags, tubs and bottles.


The weight of the container may make a difference at checkout. Some shops  subtract the tare weight but other don’t. The tare weight is the weight of the empty container.

The Market
Local markets are a great place to find plastic free food and I love Todmorden Market. There is an indoor covered  hall and outdoor stalls. You can get everything you need and some fantastic treats including loose
Coffee beans and tea
Tobacco for pipes.
There is a great hardware stall that sells loose screws, grass seed by weight and cotton boot laces

Biscuits The same as those in Huddersfield Market. You can read more here.
