They are preparing to open in their new unit next door to their current stall, that will allow them to stock a larger range of fresh, locally sourced produce.

Fresh and 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 that are sourced locally.

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

Councillor Robert Boswell, Cabinet Member for Environment at Preston City Council said: “Congratulations to Fresh and Fruity on their planned expansion, it is great to see a local business thriving at this uncertain time.

"It is more important now than ever for the people of Preston to support their local independent businesses as they are essential for the fabric of our diverse community.

"Don’t forget while shopping at Preston Markets to stay safe, adhere to the social distancing measures in place and wear a mask for everyone’s safety.”

Speaking to The Post yesterday about the new Fiver Fest scheme, encouraging local shoppers to give back to the economy, owner Tracy said expanding would mean she could offer more produce and meet customer demand.

Tracy said: “We are delighted to be able to expand our business at Preston Markets. Since we opened in 2018 we have built up a loyal customer base, which has allowed us to expand to a larger unit and increase our produce range further.

"We would like to thank all of our customers old and new who have supported us at Preston Markets and especially during the difficult times we have all faced this year.

"We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our new stall when we open next week, so pop by and say hello.”
