Greensmiths is a local supermarket with a real difference – a butcher, a baker, a greengrocer, a coffee specialist, and a wine merchant – as well as all the other daily food needs you would expect to find in a supermarket.

He arrived at Greensmiths and assessed his surroundings. There was a display counter full of fresh meat, and that is not to say young and...more
I need to seek therapy for my raw meat obsession. Raw steaks are so dang appealing to me. Only in places like Greensmiths though.
