You know how much I love my fruit, particularly stone fruit, and that I’m relishing this time of year with the advent of nectarines, peaches and apricots to name but a few!
Each week after class it is my joy to cross the square and venture into the green grocer’s to pick up our weekly supply of fruit and veg. I enjoy being able to choose my own (no racks of pre-packed goods here!), the fabulous variety, the knowledge that items like bananas haven’t been picked and stored for months on end, the fact that I can ask questions about the produce and have things like avocados hand picked for me and are ripe and ready when needed, which is also all part of the friendly service! It’s a long, long time since I purchased any fruit or veg from one of the big supermarket chain stores – despite their ads claiming differently, they just don’t cut it when it comes to freshness and quality!
Go on……I dare you!
