Crates Local is situated in a prime location in Horsham Town Centre. It is a natural addition to the growing list of great independent food outlets and amazing wealth of fabulous restaurants including Michelin star Tristan’s. Our customers demand quality, local and fresh produce on a weekly basis.
A natural addition to Crates is our Coffee Shop, serving amazing coffee from Horsham Coffee Roaster and speciality teas from Bird&Blend. All of our pastries, sandwiches and soft drinks are of course made up from the local produce we already have in the Crates Local shop. In the summer we create tasty salads featuring the famous Nutbourne tomatoes and during winter we switch to nourishing daily soups.
The choice of produce available from the shop is extensive from fruit and vegetables, artisan bread, dairy, cheese, eggs, cakes, soft drinks, jams, chutneys and even handmade chocolate. The shop also boasts a fine range of local wines from Bolney Wine Estate, Beacon Down Vineyard, beers from local breweries such as Hepworth , Loud Shirt and Firebird, ciders from Wobblegate, Garden Cider and Trenchmore Farm‘s Silly Moo.
