Mercifully the only veg I have to buy in at the moment are tomatoes, although when my own stuff runs out I find Asda (in Worcester at least) are decent quality and price.

Lidl has best value and freshest veg but unfortunately it's a bus ride and quite a walk away :(
Sainsbury's and Asda are also awkward to get to without a car.
So it's usually Tesco (nearest of the big s/ms) or the corner shop Co op for me - so I tend to rely on frozen veg, if I want something I haven't managed to grow myself.

There's a lot to say about frozen veg, these days it's flash frozen on picking so is often technically fresher than the fresh stuff.

yes I have to agree with you plot 1 P I went into ASDA today and there veg was of a good standard and  I also take point about getting a bus to shop as our local l bus service is to cut in the new year because the council are withdrawing the subsidy for this service that will effect many people who use the bus for a day out shopping especially the older generation who also rely on the bus for hospital appointments

can't comment on Lidl MUM don't use it  ;)

god bless our district council for taking away this subsidy  :mad:

We're very lucky here because our nearest supermarket is Booth's and they buy in local veg which are very good and last a long time. For some other branded items like canned foods, sauces, etc we go to B&M Bargains on the edge of town as they are much cheaper, so we get the best of both worlds. If we didn't have a car we'd have to walk a mile and a half down the lane to the nearest bus stop, do the shopping, then trudge back to the bus station to catch one of the four-hourly buses then walk back down the lane. We'd end up with arms like orang-utangs! :blush:

You know Goosey you'd probably do what a lot of people do in your situation and order online.

Thanks Christine. Fortunately we have a car to get there and back, also my OH does the cooking and likes to see the veg, fruit etc so he can choose which ones he wants. When we are unable to drive we'd get a taxi from a firm we've often used and he's not over-priced by any means. I do order stuff on-line but not food as you aren't always sure if you'd get the right items.

A few times recently, I have looked in Iceland.  Its that or M and S in the Town.  I was impressed with the selections of fresh, frozen and general food cupboard items.  You can order online from them, but also if you spend more than 25 in store they will deliver to your door.   Sometimes it is not always the same day, but it is kept frozen until the next day when it arrives on my kitchen floor.
As for veg, my wrist is still in the splint, so cannot cut anything anyway. :(  Mrs Bouquet

Sometimes my mind wanders, if found please return.
