Supermarket shopping Todmorden style.

One Saturdy I braved the snow to go to the supermarket, not one with trolleys and checkouts where all the food wears a plastic mack, but a real touchy feely market with actual people to sell you real food, naked as nature intended.

Let me show you some of the fabulous food stalls packed with edible delights.

First the outdoor market

Tod is a long way from the coast but the market fishmonger collects fish fresh from the docs each morning.
