Country ripe for revolution

The Telegraph

Joanna Blythman talks veg with a man who plans to revamp our local greengrocers

The famously bookish inhabitants of Hay-on-Wye turned their thoughts to matters culinary this month, with the arrival of a shop that may well set a national trend.
Fresh crop: 'We need to take a look at how we source and sell fruit and veg' says Charlie Hicks, the infectiously enthusiastic co-presenter of Radio 4's Veg Talk, thinks Britain's greengrocer shops are ripe for a revival, but in a reconstructed form.
To illustrate the point, he has opened his own new-wave emporium in Hay.
