One of the market’s newest stallholders is Pura Pressed, which offers a fresh and healthy take on convenience food and drink. Made with natural ingredients, the range includes cold pressed juices, smoothies and soups (seasonal), as well as delicious raw cakes and desserts.
There is always something new and exciting on the horizon for this ambitious business. For example, salad boxes were introduced this summer and met with huge success. Varieties include Raw Pad Thai, Supa Greens and Garden Salad – with three more nutritious combinations on the way.
Meanwhile the stall’s juices and smoothies, which use seasonal fruit and veg, are ever-popular – especially with city workers looking to grab a quick lunchtime vitality fix. As the cold weather sets in, owner Graeme and his team will re-introduce a range of soups designed to provide a healthy and heart-warming meal.
Graeme commented: “We love being a part of the market and have gathered quite a following since we took on the stall. We’ve had some positive feedback on all of our products and have responded to requests for new lines – which is one of the reasons it’s so great to have that face-to-face interaction with our customers here at market.”
Pura Pressed is also launching a workplace lunch delivery service at the end of the summer, called Pura Expressed. People will be able to place orders for a tasty and nutritious lunch, which is made fresh and delivered to their work place the next day.
Graeme explained: “At the moment, there’s not an awful lot of choice when it comes to grabbing a quick lunch. Sandwiches, pasties or salads which aren’t very fresh and lack nutritional value are usually the only things on offer for busy people on their short lunch breaks. We are looking to fill that gap!”
Pura Pressed is a fresh and exciting addition to the market, which will undoubtedly continue to grow and draw new customers to our stalls on a weekly basis. Graeme is moving into a bigger unit to deal with growing demand, and the future looks bright for this natural and nourishing enterprise.
