A Burnham-On-Sea town centre greengrocer is celebrating after winning a top regional award this week.
Gardiner-Whites in Burnham High Street has received a gold ‘Taste of the West’ award for being one of the region’s best specialist retailers.
Owners Richard and Jax Gardiner-White, pictured, opened Gardiner-Whites last October in Burnham town centre to offer a mixture of fresh fruit, vegetables and food produce.
Richard told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “This award is great recognition for our hard work and very long hours supporting our community.”
“We created this shop not only as a frut and veg shop but as a ‘community hub’ and we have always said from day one that this is ‘your shop’ and we mean it! We built the foundation and our customers have created the soul of the business.”
Gardiner-Whites is a traditional greengrocer with a modern twist, priding itself on being environmentally friendly, with traditional brown paper bags for customers to take away their fresh produce rather plastic bags.
Rich added: “We have to thank Bev and Sarah from Eat Burnham for the guidance and support they have given us since day one in making us a really unique, independent greengrocer. You could almost say we are a mini Eat Festival right on our high street!”
