James Dandy

James Dandy

Established in 1826 in the City of Chester in the UK, a man called James Dandy, originally from Tarleton, moved his family to Chester and set up his stall in Chester's Market Hall Square, to sell his family farm's home grown fruit and vegetables for the first time.

Dandys Chester Market Stall Est.1826

James Dandy and his employee at their stall in Chester Market opened in 1863.

The family market stall was the very first to move indoors to Chester's new indoor Market Hall in 1863. The family business became the number one supplier of quality locally grown fruit and vegetables, used by all the top hotels in the City.

Today, now 194 years later, Dandys is run by James' 5th generation grandson Adam Dandy and his wife Clare, Sales Director Simon Hughes and Commercial Director Katie de Winton, who are supported by a long established, loyal team, all of whom are dedicated to making sure that you receive exceptional gardening and landscaping products backed up and delivered nationwide with a five star service.
