Simon Baynes Wholesale, established in 1918 as Pennington’s by Eric and Millie Pennington, has grown from a small market stall on Parliament Street in York to a thriving business serving customers across Yorkshire with over 3,000 product lines. The family also operates Millie’s, a popular fruit and veg shop on Bishopthorpe Road, named after Simon’s grandmother.
Simon started the wholesale business 30 years ago, which now employs 30 staff and serves customers including professional sports teams. The business specializes in local produce and is the only wholesaler in the city center open 7 days a week. Their upcoming trade event aims to promote local businesses and showcase their products, with canapes by award-winning chef Steve Holding and music from local guitarist Andrew Clegg.
