We love our customers asking about our produce so we thought we would share with you some frequent Q&A’s;
WHY LOCAL? It’s fresh, tasty, has provenance and makes total sense with so many amazing producers all around us. There is the added bonus of keeping money in the local community.
IS IT VALUE FOR MONEY? Much of our produce costs the same as most supermarkets, sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less.
CAN I DO A WEEKLY SHOP AT CRATES? We have all your everyday needs – bakery, dairy, fruit & veg, store cupboard goods, wine, beer and even spirits. You would probably need to use supermarkets on occasions or, better still, the markets and other small shops in town – deli’s, fishmonger & butcher (New Street).
IS IT ORGANIC? Some produce is, some is grown or made organically but not certified (as many small producers find it too costly) and other produce is not. Our focus is LOCAL, knowing the producers and what they do.
DO YOU SELL BANANAS? Yes we do in our ‘guest’ section. We have mostly local and seasonal fruit & veg but do offer some other staples. Our cafe also offers local with even the coffee being locally roasted!
