Opened in 2011 by Alan Johnson MP following an estate-wide ‘Quality of Life’ consultation, and following a successful application to the Local Food Lottery fun, ‘Fruit, Veg and More’ was set up with the aim of providing a low-cost retail alternative to the big supermarkets with a focus on fresh fruit and vegetables, and good old fashioned customer service. Local residents give up their free time to volunteer to run the store, to keep costs as low as possible.
Open seven days a week, and offering free local delivery twice weekly, Fruit Veg and More is part of the Goodwin Trust’s Programme which also involves the Community Café, FareShare and Thornton Urban Gardeners.
The Thornton Estate residents have a long and formidable track record of organising and driving forward positive changes to their community – the Goodwin Development Trust being a classic example – and the opening of this shop is a testament to that past commitment and a sign-post to what can be achieved in the future.
If you need shopping delivered to your door, look no further! Here at the Fruit, Veg and More, we’re proud to offer a delivery service to residents of Hull’s Thornton Estate and the surrounding areas. What’s more, we offer FREE DELIVERY! for orders over £5.00, otherwise a £1 charge applies.
