White Rabbit Chocolate Company: A chocolate delight
A very small shop and so small from the outside you may miss it but this shop is chocolate heaven. A wonderful selection of chocolate from people who clearly love this wonderful food type.
The website has full details but the only chocolate shop I know of that has tasting sessions!

Between Wednesday and Saturday Markets: Shpping streets in Beverley
The main shopping area is between Wednesday and Saturday Markets. Toll Gavel has some very good shops and there are upmarket shops such as Monsoon and Marks and Spencer food in Saturday Marrket. Also look at the shops in North Bar Within , especally St Marys Court and also the shops behind the Kings Head. There is a large Tesco in Morton Lane.
Netto: Budget Supermarket
Another supermarket for the budget traveller. Often brand name items are sold at a much lower price than the other supermarkets. The staff are friendly and helpful.
However if you require a plastic carrier bag you have to pay them - so take your own.
What to pay: Less than average
And Albert: Fair-Trade and things...
Sadly even the historic medieval market town of Beverley cannot hold back the onslaught of the national chain stores with many of the big established names dominating the high street. However there’s hope for individuality and originality still in the shape of shops like ‘And Albert’. Selling trinkets, cards, furniture, fair-trade products… Well, all-sorts, it really is an endearing place that’s just impossible not to be lured deeper in to browse.

Saturday Market: Browser's heaven
If you're around at the weekend head to the main market square in centre of the town 'Saturday Market' for, surprisingly, the Saturday Market! From clothes to cards, pottery to pet food you'll find it on sale here. It'll never threaten say, Camden, for sheer and reputation but it's no doubt a damn sight cheaper than those southerners would charge for the same stuff. At the other end of the main shopping thoroughfare Toll Gavel / Butcher's row in Wednesday Market you'll find a few more stalls if you saunter down that way.
What to pay: Sadly this isn't India, bartering generally isn't an option. But prices are much more sensible than down London way.

Memorial Hall: Friday - Women's Institute Market
A small market selling home baked cakes, home grown produce & plants as well as craft items. There's even a small cafe.
It's worth a look even if you don't intend to buy - some weeks there are not many stalls.
What to pay: Average
Marks & Spencer: An upmarket food store.
This old English high street store started its life as a stall on Leeds Kirkgate market in 1884.
What to buy: The branch in Beverley is only a food outlet with a small selection of items. It could be expensive to do all your shopping here but the quality is very good.
MON - SAT 08:30 - 18:00
SUNDAY 10:00 - 17:00
What to pay: More than average.
Heron Frozen Foods: Budget Shopping
An excellent shop for budget travellers.
Although it has a limited range there's a reasonable choice & quite a few items suitable for VEGETARIANS. Quite often there are "brand" name products that can be purchased at low prices.
What to pay: Less than average.
The largest supermarket in the centre of town with FREE parking for up to 3 hours. There is plently of parking allocated for DISABLED & for customers with YOUNG CHILDREN.
Many residents were opposed to this building as it was built on the area of a former cattle market.
Good customer services.
What to buy: The cafe is pleasant & offers an all day breakfast with a good VEGETARIAN choice.
If you need to use loos (toilets) or require BABY CHANGING FACILITIES then this is the best place in town as it's FREE & you don't even have to buy anything from the supermarket.
What to pay: Average prices.
