A NEW farm shop offering Cumbria produce is set to open in Kendal as part of a multi-million-pound development.

Spinning Jennies is welcoming A Days Walk Farm Shop & Deli as the latest addition to their lineup of vendors for their early 2024 opening.

With a focus on fresh, locally sourced produce, A Days Walk is set to bring a taste of Cumbria to their development.

This is part of the project converting the former Beales building into separate shop units, a food hall, retail stalls, and flats. 

The farm shop has existing outlets in Ambleside and Holker and a range of more than 400 items including rare meats, free-range poultry, artisan cheeses, local beers, hand-toasted muesli and more - all produced locally.

Bosses at Spinning Jennies have also announced that they are housing a pop-up shop of A Day's Walk during December in the newly created 37 Finkle Street shop, which is currently used as a sales office for Spinning Jennies until the main building opens.

The pop-up A Day's Walk will provide Christmas hampers and local farm produce next door to the existing Lakeland Artisan hampers and locally produced goods shop on 39 Finkle Street.


The farm shop will be an addition to the already established Lakeland Artisan and the recently opened wine bar 5 o'Clock Somewhere.

A spokesperson for Spinning Jennies said: "The anticipation for our early 2024 opening continues to build, and we can't wait to introduce the Kendal community to the delightful offerings from A Days Walk and other exceptional vendors."
