Here at Appleton’s Butchers we encourage our customers to shop local & support their local businesses. We have two shops, one in Ripon & the other in Wetherby and there is so much to enjoy in both towns. By supporting indie businesses it helps to keep the town alive.

Back in December there was the second annual Shop Local Saturday which is a nationwide campaign designed to encourage local shopping. All year round is ideal though, and we believe the produce & goods are far better when you go to the individual experts. We activity include #shoplocal in our tweets & hope our Twitter followers take notice.

From florists & greengrocers, to shoe shops & butchers like ourselves, please keep shopping local & help to keep the high streets and market places alive. Take a look at this article from The Guardian for more details & reason why you should shop locally. Invest in your local community & shop local today! (Plus, our pork pies are the best, even famous – why go anywhere else!?)
