What a fantastic place!
I met the lovely girls from The Craft Hub at the new co-operative Cafe The Real Food Store on Friday to discuss our stand at the forthcoming Respect Festival in Exeter. Downstairs you can buy Emma’s Bread and a great range of local produce and upstairs there is a spacious seating area, extensive local menu and fairtrade teas and coffees. Since 2009 it has taken 292 shareholders to get this community project off the ground and well done to them. It’s relaxed, comfy and light with very reasonable prices, definitely worth a visit and you get to leave with that smug feeling that you are helping local businesses rather than a multi national global corporation!
Armed with a pile of gorgeous yellow flyers and posters for the Craft Hub “Summer of Love” Fair on June 19th which I have promised to distribute around Teignmouth & Shaldon (think I’ll get Tracy to help me from My Sister Mabel) I left the meeting full of enthusiasm for the future!
