As far as shops go, my main port of call is a small deli in Comber, just over ten miles from Belfast city centre. Indie Fude is a super spot that showcases their favourite produce from the island of Ireland. Johnny, who owns Indie Fude, is a passionate and excitable being. He always has a story to tell and a new product to introduce you to. From jam and flour to meat and veg, every product is clearly labelled, with a shout out to the producer/farmer.
It’s really important to me to be able to trace a product back to its roots, and I know I can do that here. This means I know exactly where my milk/eggs/bread comes from. And I can be 100% certain my farmer is getting a fair price, unlike if I buy the same in the supermarket. The ethos here is to pay the producer a fair price. So, you can be sure no producers you find in Indie Fude are being squeezed down to minimum profit margins.
