They have a proper butchers, fishmongers and greengrocers.
And lots of lovely eating places. This is one of the newer ones that I have still to try. It is billed as a Gastro Cafe. The website looks lovely.
You can shop on Sharrowvale Road and not spend a fortune. I love this little vintage shop where I got the "Jackies" for £1 (incidentally - look how much they are on here!!!). Its called The Front Parlour and its great for a rummage.
On Saturday we had a fair bit of sunshine and goods were displayed outside the shops - just like the olden days (my uncle says its a sign you are getting older when you reminisce and I seem to be doing it all the time lately!)
