The new unit next door to their current stall is set to open on Tuesday, 20 October and will allow them to stock a larger range of fresh, locally sourced produce.

Fresh & Fruity is a family run business which was established 40 years ago and began trading at Preston Markets in 2018, stocking fresh fruit and vegetables, sourced locally.

They offer seasonal hampers for customers to collect or free delivery to all Preston postcodes.
