There are many reasons to pay a visit to Greenbelt’s very own grocery store. Here are just seven.
- It’s convenient
You already have enough to think about when coming to Greenbelt. Did you pack enough pants? Where’s the other welly? Milk & Honey means you don’t have to worry about doing the shopping. Or carrying the shopping. Or keeping it cool. Easy!
- Its shopkeepers are fountains of knowledge
Greenbelt volunteers run Milk & Honey. They’re very friendly and can be relied on for good conversation, programme recommendations…and the occasional spot of dressing up.
- It’s in a prime location
Milk & Honey’s conveniently located in the campsite hub, close to the main entrance for the Festival Village. You can’t miss it. It opens at 7am and closes at 11pm – so a loaf of bread is pretty much always available. Or a chocolate bar.
Their shopkeepers have nice aprons and sometimes wear false beards. But beware: some of the beards in the shop are real.
- All the essentials, none of the mark-up
They sell all the things you need for a classic camping experience: bread, biscuits, bacon, beans – and other things that don’t begin with ‘b’, like milk. Better still, there are no massive mark-ups. Because M&H just want to cover their costs and ensure you’re fed and watered.
There is one jar of honey in the shop at all times. And no bees.
- Hard data and fun facts
They can offer all kinds of fascinating data on Greenbelt’s consumption habits. Did you know the most popular biscuit sold on site is…a custard cream? Frankly, I’m amazed that it’s not everyone’s crumbly, oaty favourite – the Hobnob. But that’s just me.
