A FARM shop and delicatessen specialising in local and British products has officially opened its doors in Newport.
Four Seasons Farm Shop and Deli, on High Street, has an impressive delicatessen counter offering a selection of meat, dried meats, cheeses, and chutneys and preserves, while also selling the usual fruit and vegetables.
The shops also boasts a premium coffee and takeaway menu.
Owner Mark Bradley said: "We are trying to serve everything as local as we can. Obviously it can't be done all the time because people still want their oranges and bananas.

"But I wanted something that sets us aside from the supermarkets. We can't possibly compete with them so we're trying to put specialist things on the shelf.
"People can come in and have a look around and get those special bits and pieces. We like to think we're a bit different to what is out there already."

Some 300 visitors turned up for the event, browsing the shop and enjoying a hog roast - the �300 proceeds of which went to Cancer Research - bahjis, ice cream samples and free champagne.
"It went very well and it was pleasing to see so many people turn up to support us," said Mr Bradley, who has a background in farming but for which this is a new venture entirely. "
