Shaw's Fruit & Vegetable Merchants

Shaw's fruit & vegetable shop is based in the Lincolnshire village of Alvingham, 3 miles North East of Louth in Lincolnshire.

We source our seasonal produce from a network of approximately twenty local Lincolnshire farmers and growers. In addition to this we supplement the produce from all over the UK and world (but only where necessary) via large commercial import specialists.

Shaw's are incredibly proud to have worked with many of our suppliers for a number of decades and are always on the lookout for local growers to add to the seasonal product lines.

We regularly post seasonal produce updates on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and love to interact and retweet where we can.

Great Grandad Charlie

Shaw's first began in 1902 when farm labourer Charles Shaw bought Buxton House in Alvingham. There he began his very own business specialising in early chitted seed potatoes along with growing flowers, fruit, cucumbers and tomatoes. Glass houses were built to accommodate all of this produce, pictures of which can be seen in the early aerial photographs.
