Asda Basildon EastgateEastgate Shopping Centre, Basildon, Essex, SS14 1AE
Asda was originally formed by a group of Yorkshire farmers, as an outlet for their produce, but is now part of the enormous Wal-Mart, American, chain.
The emphasis is on keen prices, but quality hasnt been altogether neglected although the very best producers are absent. They have however, recently won a National award for promoting British fresh fruit and vegetables.
If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
