Garden produce and honesty box, Aberarth, Ceredigion, Wales
One of the many pleasures of wandering along country lanes are the opportunities to buy local produce. In this one tiny village on the west coast of Wales I saw pots of jam, a comprehensive selection of vegetables and an array of garden plants. These particular stalls are just people selling on their surplus with a request to put the money in a tin or through the letter box.
In areas where there are lots of these plus small scale producers selling at the farm gate you could probably live without visiting a shop. One village I know in Cornwall has various veg, fresh flowers, herbs, bread, eggs and cakes in from various homes as well as a farm selling fresh unpasteurised milk from its fine herd of Jersey cows and several fishermen who sell their catch of mackerel and sea bass straight off the boat.
