An operationally simple one‐jar one‐step mechanochemical Reformatsky reaction using in situ generated organozinc intermediates under neat grinding conditions has been developed. Notable features are that this reaction protocol requires no solvent, no inert gases and no pre‐activation of the bulk zinc source. The developed process is demonstrated to have good substrate scope (39‐82% yield), and is effective irrespective of the morphology of the zinc source.
