Tomatoes and other vegetables

I have ummed and ahhed about this post. Should I share this little gem of a shop with you or not? Actually shop is rather a grand title for a roadside barrow but it performs all the functions I need in such an establishment.

Filled daily with an ever changing cornucopia of fresh produce the cart has so far this year provided us with beans, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, strawberries, chillies and just yesterday the first sweet corn of the season. Later on into October the big cart will be supplemented by several wheelbarrows full to the brim with pumpkins and squash. I love that despite the fact that I live in a pretty built up area, just on the edges of the London urban sprawl I can buy fresh food locally and be trusted to put the money in an honesty box.

The sweet corn were fresh as could be. The kernels popped in my mouth in little sugary explosions as only fresh corn can. At 3 for £1 they were a bargain too.

I was just wondering if anyone else had a roadside gem of their own they fancied sharing with me and any other readers of this blog? Let us know.

    Looks like a fantastic stall you have there. We have a fantastic honesty stall down our road. They always have eggs but recently have had potatoes, various other veg, beautiful bunches of flowers for a £1 and even Venison. I think the gentleman who runs it is a game keeper.

    Eggs, flowers and venison sounds lovely. Happy with what we have though as it is probably more than most people in the metropolis.
