Lewes, East Sussex has a reputation for being full of independents, not just food producers, but all sorts including antique shops, craft shops, and interior and homeware shops. During my short trip to Sussex, I spent a few hours exploring this pretty town located about a 25-minute drive north of Brighton. I discovered tempting antique shops and a wonderful interior shop called Freight HHG that prides itself in supporting our British Artisans.

Just before leaving, I noticed a market stall on Cliff High Street, selling a variety of plums, damsons and apples, all from two local farms and freshly picked that day.  How could I resist a mixed bag of three plum varieties, large rich damsons and tasty apples to munch on the way home!
