New Farm Shop for Richmond
The front part of The Fat Badger restaurant on Hill Rise in Richmond is now a lovely farm shop! The Gladwin Brothers have transformed it into a Local & Wild cornucopia, bursting with fresh seasonal produce.
All Manner of Produce
There’s fruit and veg, artisanal breads, homemade ready meals, cakes, dry goods such as British quinoa and fava beans, coffee, plus a meat and fish counter displaying daily specials from local farms and coastlines. I was particularly impressed with the delicious Mushroom & Truffle marmite at under a fiver. It is so delicious and can be spread on toast, or canapés and it’s wonderful as an extra ingredient with scrambled eggs. The Lobster fish pie is the next thing I want to try as well as some of the homemade ice cream.
The prices are pretty reasonable too.
It’s open from 8am and well worth a visit.
