What’s special this month..
IT’S BACK! Fresh local Asparagus straight from the farm in Eastry – £4.75 for 500g.
Not only is it very fresh but it’s packed with vitamins A, C and K. Unlike much of the asparagus in supermarkets which travel thousands of miles, our asparagus is picked only 10 miles away. ‘Wonky’ asparagus is available so we’re also helping to reduce food waste. Get your fill of this lovely seasonal veg!
Health Benefits of Asparagus (source BBC Good Food):
1. Supports gut health
2. May ease hangovers
3. A rich source of folate
4. May help relieve inflammatory conditions
5. May lower blood pressure
Is asparagus safe for everyone?
Having had the pleasure of helping out here a few years back , I saw first hand the dedication and hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this such a wonderful hub of the community.
Such thought goes into every part of the running of this place ,that then appears smooth and effortless. Staff that no matter how tired, or surprisingly busy doing the behind the scenes stuff (that most of their shoppers wouldn’t even realise goes on ) are genuinely always friendly, helpful and respectful to their customers and colleagues alike.
Further supporting the community by always stocking local produce and listening to and acting on customer needs , with regards to any special dietary issues or just stocking a favourite item of someone who cannot get to larger stores in town anymore. If you’ve not been in before, you’ll be surprised by the choice available.
Lovely seasonal displays a well kept and inviting outdoor area and the innovative green light entry system further add to making this a safe, pleasant and well deserving recipient of this award.
Massive well done to all involved “
