Penzance shops that are no more

Post memories, nostalgia and blasts from the past here. We\'re looking for tales of yesteryear and how it \"were much better in the good ol days!\"

Tescos are satan! Anyone shopping there (except in emergencies ;)) should be ashamed of themselves






I tried some of their organic vegetables, tasted just the same as the watery non-organic crap they sell; compared to the stuff we have delivered from Riverford Organics from Devon, it's a long way off the mark..

unfortunately we are not in the catchment area for organic veg from growers in Cornwall,






Cusgarne Organics in Cornwall, in my opinion, offer the best food you will ever taste. They grow amazing vegetables and also do a range of 'Demeter' grown food which is like a whole other level above organic. Food that gives you 'life energy' in abundance. Check them out, and if you live in their delivery area, try some of their Demeter reared beef.

If there's anyone in the Newquay area, within a ten mile radius or so, who would like organic food delivered, then get in touch, as they will consider our area only if there is enough interest to start a new delivery round. You won't regret it...
