Maya has a huge and interesting range of preserves with really unusual ingredients. There is a delicious marmalade called Lemon and Gin (no alcohol) and the range has a great Indian selection such as Lucknow Lime Chutney. as a cook Maya has a detailed knowledge of recipes in history; so try out one of these old recipes. I like Sweet Mustard Pickle. Her preserves can be bought in lots of places in and around Bridport.
Why buy your flavours in small expensive packets when Mike and Sue will weigh any amount of spices, dried fruits and nuts into take away bags? They also have Tamerisk Farm veg and salads as well as all the usual deli stuff. What I really like about Fruits of the Earth is they really support the Bridport community; there is a very large notice board that tells you what is currently going on.
Jaxsons Deli is a really great cheese shop. It keeps french cheeses but often there is a local or west country equivalent which is even better and they sell it. Also look out for their baked cakes which are really unusual. Why buy things from abroard when the local choice is so great?
This is a great scheme for busy working people in West West Dorset and has the advantage of having a stall on Bridport's Wednesday market too. You can find them opposite Jackson's in West Street. They use many of the local organic and permaculture producers, so this cuts down food miles to a minimum and gives you the freshest local produce possible
Tamerisk farm is set in the most beautiful countryside just off Chesil Beach. Their red ruby devon beef is incredibly tender and tasty. Breadmakers will love their own ground flours and in the summer there are masses of choice in fruit and veg. look out for their farm open day when you really get to know why organic is so important for us and the environment.
