“Fantastic way of discovering food shops you would never have known existed. We were fortunate to go in late September, abundant harvest season – Oh my I never saw so many apple and fruit varieties! I thought I was in heaven itself! and there’s a surprise in the end but I won’t mention it so as to not spoil the fun.”
