Yellow Bicycle Café

The Yellow Bicycle Café in Blandford Forum is the first café in the UK to join the Seasonarians movement. They pride themselves on providing local and seasonal food to their customers with the utmost transparency around where their ingredients come from. All of the cafe’s meat and dairy ingredients, as well as their deli items come from local, named farms and producers.

Owner and chef, Steve Bell, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have joined the Seasonarians. Their aims fit exactly with ours, to make sure customers know exactly where their food comes from, and to help them eat more seasonal, local produce. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, so many people have appreciated the availability of local foods from Dorset’s farmers, farm shops and producers. We are delighted to work with Seasonarians to help continue to grow this link between local producers and people’s plates.”
