Our Official Opening!

If you haven’t already heard our official opening is this Friday 11th July and we couldn’t be more excited. Our doors will be opening at 10am for all of our members as well as to the general public.

Our ribbon cutting ceremony will be at 12pm and we are honoured that The Worshipful the Mayor (Councillor Michelle Wiseman) of Bury will be performing this for Village Greens.

We will be open until 6:30pm on Friday so you can stay for as long or as little as you like. Our team have worked hard to make sure we have as much produce as possible for you all and you will be able to buy fantastic organic fruit and veg, local beers, organic meat, delicious deli goodies, wholefood staples and fabulous chilled and frozen produce. The most mouth wateringly yummy fresh bread will be arriving at 12pm so make sure you are there to get your hands on some!

We hope to see you all at the Village Greens opening this Friday. Come and mingle, have a look around and buy some exceptional produce!

Please note that we will be opening without the use of card machines, these will be up and running in the coming weeks. However, there is a Halifax and Barclays cash point very close by. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
