Get set for lots of tasty treats at Teddington’s first Producers Day

Deborah Thompson will throw open the doors of Teddington Stores to producers and customers on 31st January in the first of her local produce days.
Producers from around the county will gather at the store to give customers the chance to sample and buy their produce.
Evesham-based Styans Produce will be in store with a choice of in-season vegetables, whilst Hayles Farm from Winchcombe will have their fruit and ciders. Tewkesbury-based baker, La Parisienne, will also be in store with their exquisite range of breads and pastries.
Other suppliers planned for the Producers Day include cheese makers, pie makers, chutney and jam makers, and wine importers. They will all be on hand to talk to customers about the products, and answer questions.
Wherever possible, Deborah stocks her store with locally produced goods and she hopes the local produce days will help customers find out just how much is available locally.
Deborah said: “I want to support other local businesses as much as I can, and these local producer days are a special way to offer customers the chance to try new things and meet the people who have so much passion for what they do.”

Local businesswoman, Deborah Thompson, is celebrating a successful first month after she opened a brand new food and wine store with a very special difference.
Teddington Stores is based in the old Fox Saddlery building at the Teddington Hands crossroads and has been open since early December. The new venture created 10 jobs and is supporting other local businesses by selling their produce directly to consumers. The store has the atmosphere of a food hall, with a personal service. Along with the typical milk, bread, eggs and life’s little essentials, customers are treated to a superb selection of meat, wines, ciders and ales. The coffee shop, selling the finest Lavazza coffee is also open every day.
Deborah, who had the idea for the store back in September 2014 said, “We’re working really hard to make sure that if there’s an item made locally, we sell that and, not the generic one you could buy anywhere.” Stocks at the store include fruit from nearby Hayles Farm, vegetables from Styan’s in Evesham, bread from La Parisienne in Tewkesbury, lovely pies, jams and chutneys made locally, local beers and ciders alongside a selection of local gins, vodkas and liqueurs. There’s a long line of local suppliers…
“In the first month we’ve had a fantastic response – and customers are already telling us that they love the shop, especially as it has so much local produce. It’s fast becoming a popular meeting place!”
Deborah explained that the range of produce is expanding all the time and that she has never failed to be impressed by the 
passion and energy displayed by local producers for what they do.
It all amounts to shopping with a difference: No wonder their lovely jute bags state, “For the love of good food and wine…”
