How we started

The Shepherd’s Purse is an enduring and iconic family business which began as the result of an extraordinary journey through Afghanistan and India to the rice and spice markets of the East. Our parents travelled along the old Silk Road into deepest Afghanistan, to the ancient bazaar town of Tashkurghan where Hindu Kush meets Russian Steppes. Here they were immersed in a world where an abundance of rice, pulses and grains were displayed in open sacks among a dazzling array of spices. Soaked in the aromas of spice and incenses, the bustling markets became their inspiration and the genesis of a wholefood store which is still thriving today and holds true to the original concept. Evocative aromas fill the air where fresh spices are still hand weighed and open trays of delights ​mingle among an apothecary of high-quality​ goods.

We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and the history of a business which began as a small shop in what was then a rundown part of Whitby. It was a shop that started a renaissance of the old East side, undoubtedly creating one of the most popular destinations for both locals and tourists in the North East today. And there are still white doves nesting in the walled garden at the back of our building amid the pan tiled roofs of Church Street, inspired by the sight of white doves dancing around the high blue domed mosque in the great square of Mazar-i-Sharif .
