Inside our shop

We are a local high street shop in Debden, Essex with a wonderful loyal customer base. We are always looking to offer a wide range of fruit & vegetables as well as herbs and spices to suit the changing cooking habits of our customers. This includes us always looking for unusual and exotic fruit.

'The long working hours have paid off and we have now built up an extensive customer base both with the companies we deliver to and the customers that come into the shop.'

our staff

We have always employed local people who are known in the community and over the years have built up great relationships with our customers, we even have a customer birthday list!

Pauline & Lynn

are the Sparks double act - they are in the shop on Thursday and Fridays, taking customer orders & packing orders for delivery the next day. They are both long term family friends who add a bit of sparkle to Sparks greengrocers!

Alan & Amelia

brings something quite unique to Sparks customers. After Alan having been established in Manford Way, Chigwell for 40 years in A&C Fruiterers we feel its an honour to have him as a close friend and onboard the Sparks team.
