The Seasons – More Than Just A Local Shop

We believe The Seasons is more than just a local shop. The Seasons embodies a philosophy rooted in organic and biodynamic principles, serving as a hub for vegan, vegetarian, and eco-conscious consumers. We are a sustainable and eco conscious family-run business.”

The Story Of Where It Began

The Seasons was born back in 1971 when a local Quaker, Diana Phillips, recognised a real need in the community for healthy organic foods. Since then the shop has grown and gone from strength to Strength.

In 2012 John Walden, a longstanding director of the shop, bought the business and was joined by his son Robin a few years later…and he has taken the business well and truly into the 21 st century! By the autumn of 2017 they moved out of the premises on the Hartfield Road and created a whole new shop on the site of the old vegetable shop in Medway House. They have been able to offer an even greater range of high quality organic foods all under one roof whilst maintaining their community spirit !

At the core of their values is a commitment to offering customers an extraordinary range of Organic and Biodynamic Foods. They believe that the way to a healthy society is through healthy foods.

They are a member of the Organic Farmers & Growers Association. Organic means working with nature, not against it. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment.

By partnering with local farms such as Cherry Gardens, Balcombe Nurseries, Laines Farm and Emerson Gardens, they ensure a bountiful supply of fresh, pesticide-free produce. From vibrant vegetables to succulent fruits, each item reflects a dedication to sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Moreover, The Seasons pioneers eco-friendly solutions, offering refill stations and zero-waste products to minimise packaging waste. By promoting conscious consumption and supporting ethical suppliers, they strive to create a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come.


With over 4000 carefully curated products, The Seasons celebrates the craftsmanship of local artisans and makers. Through partnerships with like-minded producers, they source high-quality goods that resonate with their values, who also believe passionately in quality products that don’t cost the earth.

At both of the shops they offer weekly Taster Days & Meet the Maker days, they invite the suppliers to come and talk with the customers and try some of their products. By bridging the gap between producers and consumers, The Seasons fosters a sense of community and appreciation for artisanal craftsmanship. Events for both stores can be found on their social media platforms and in store.


Beyond being a place to shop, The Seasons is deeply involved in the local community. From sponsoring events to supporting charities, they believe in giving back and building connections. Whether you’re attending a workshop or simply popping in for groceries, you’ll always be greeted with a warm smile and a sense of belonging.
