Last Saturday I got ALL my veggies, salad and fruit here for the whole week ahead, enough to feed 3 adults and 3 guineapigs!! All the items I bought were fresh, as if they'd been picked or dug up that day. It is now Thursday and what is still left is still fresh...fantastic quality and price. This green grocers has been there for as long as I can remember and is known by my family as 'The Long Shop'! I will be going out of my way to give this shop my custom from now on...
