If you’ve ever found yourself down the side of Temple Meads station around lunchtime, you might have noticed a curious scrummage of people emanating from one of the tunnel shaped spaces. This is probably Hart’s Bakery. Naturally I swung by to see what all the fuss was about
I stopped shopping in supermarkets several years ago. I had a multitude of reasons, including the poor deal they give suppliers, lack of provenance information about produce, the difficulties faced by small independent businesses, and the fact that I simply grew to hate the experience. Now, I manage to buy a good chunk of produce direct from farmers and local producers, but I still need to go to shops to buy food a couple of days a week. So if I don’t go to supermarkets, where do I go?
