Welcome to the Hairy Fig

Hello all, we are now approaching the completion of The Hairy Fig after the floods. Just to let you know that all hands are now needed to set up again so staffing at Via Vecchia in the shambles by us will have to be reduced and some fresh ingredients will not be replenished until we open in Fossgate. Apologies but I am sure you lovely customers will understand!


The Hairy Fig is a speciality food shop selling fine fodder, locally sourced quality foods as well as the very best Spanish, Italian, French, Mexican foods.We stock quality artisan foods, including our unique aged balsamic vinegars of Modena aging from 12 to 100 years, all available ’on tap’. Savoury speciality foods including pate, truffles, truffle oil, truffle juice, truffle salt, truffle honey, hams and salamis, as well as British and continental cheeses. For those with a sweet tooth, our range of exclusive chocolates from around the world includes Lauden, Damian Allsop, Willies, Original Beans, Prestat, Amedei, Valrhona, and Vosges.

Bespoke hampers are our speciality, made and delivered to order. Please e-mail sue@thehairyfig.co.uk with any questions.
