I am no great lover of supermarkets so I think it is one of the virtues of living round here that there's still a good range of shops and stalls in Lower Marsh
. Good and cheap fruit and veg from the market stalls; posher fruit and veg (and great bread and meat) from Greensmiths
. But there is also cheap and cheerful stuff from Iceland and an extraordinary range of cleaning products from Supreme Stores. Fish is the main missing ingredient and there's not twenty four opening (but some places are open until eight). Overall I think the local shopping is rather civilised.
