River Cottage Deli & CanteenTrinity Square, Axminster, Devon, EX13 5AN
An excellent shop under the ownership of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, of television fame. The aim is to create an alternative to the supermarket - everything possible being sourced locally. Meat, poultry, vegetables and much more are offered.
Prices, unfortunately, reflect the quality on offer - but there's no way around this problem. But not eating cheaply produced, sometimes tasteless, items such as chickens, does put the 'real' thing beyond the reach of many.
They occasionally hold special events - for example, a book-signing and question-answering session from a well-known mushroom forager. If you live locally, these are worth looking out for, as well as supporting the philosophy of the shop.
There's also a 'Canteen' where you can eat, and which holds various events and demonstrations.
