My latest foodie discovery near Retford, North Notts

I made a great discovery a couple of weeks ago when I was driving back home from a visit to Retford -  a wonderful fruit and vegetable stall in the centre of Sutton cum Lound village.  It was stocked with such an amazing array of fresh, seasonal vegetables, salads and fruits that I had to stop and buy some!
