I have just discovered a wonderful new foodie shop in Fetcham, near Leatherhead, called Greenwise, and if you care about the quality of the food you eat then this is definitely the shop for you.
They specialise in organic, Fair Trade, locally produced food – even down to Fetcham Honey! And for those who suffer with lactose, gluten and sugar intolerances it offers a huge range of foods, plus wonderful fresh produce. You can wander around the shelves, salivate at the foods on offer from around the world and sample one of the little tasting samples on show – perhaps some locally produced lemonade or a fresh smoothie. Then once you have got your taste buds interested you can sit and enjoy a coffee or may a Red Espresso made from Rooibos Tea – caffeine free and full of anti-oxidants – and of course accompanied by a locally made cake (gluten and sugar free). On my latest visit I bought a tub of Pina-Colada flavour coconut ice cream, which is dairy, lactose and soya free – so delicious with fresh strawberries or raspberries – quite a revelation!
This is obviously a shop that cares deeply about the food it sells, its provenance and its health benefits. Their Facebook page: www.facebook.com/greenwiseshop is well worth a visit to see what they have on offer.
