Playing Shop

howards_small.jpg

My folks recently were going through some family photos, and we came across this one – a shot from the 1940s, back in England, of my Grandfathers old greengrocers (do Americans call them Farm shops?). Unfortunately stores like this are hard to come by these days back in England – the large chain supermarkets have undercut all of the smaller, local stores, so most are out of business. Thankfully farmers markets are still around and going strong! Anyhow, I thought people might get a giggle out of this shot of an old veg store. I can only imagine how much produce was inside, there is a storefull on the outside!

    That looks pretty amazing! I used to work in a fruit and veg shop back in Australia – I loved it. I got to learn what was truely good and ripe and what was in season. I think everyone should do a stint in a veg shop!

    You forgot your Grandfather’s favourite comment to his female customers: ‘ If you squeeze the grapes, Madam, I will have to squeeze you!’
