Sue Baker's view...

There are many ways to get the best out of this splendid guide, kept in the car for visits and holidays, consulted when surfing the web and equally as important - for finding out just how much good food can be found on one’s own doorstep. All the information you need to order or visit is provided, the entries are individually tailored – a real labour of love – and food.

Shopped: The Shocking Power of British Supermarkets, Joanna Blythman

From Rose Prince:
‘For me, The Good Produce Guide is the antidote to the tedious weekly trawl for food with a trolley - I want to introduce readers to shops that are both remarkable for innovation and tradition, markets that are vibrant and a thousand characters who are passionate about the food they sell. Readers should be able to pick up the guide, wherever they are in the UK, and find a good butcher selling naturally reared, native bred beef, or sustainably caught fish - a pick-your-own or a great farm shop. We are discovering real shopping again at last - this is the guide to make that happen. I want you to love reading it as much as I have enjoyed finding the entries.’
