The Fruit Market in Bourne End is just fabulous. I am amazed when I check out how little the bill comes to. Also fruit and veg is not pre-packed so you can buy just one of anything. In addition they have some fantastic flowers and plants. I would recommend it to anyone.

I always buy my cu flowers and yearly my hanging baskets - the best value and quality around. Thank you so much today for looking after my purse which I had dropped in the shop.

Truly fantastic shop. Wonderful fresh fruit & veg - they go to the London markets in the early hours every day! Brilliant choice and excellent prices. The bedding plants are by far the best value anywhere. The flower shop at the back is great too - with most of the ladies going the extra mile to provide exactly what you want at very reasonable prices.

The queues on a Saturday speak volumes! People come from miles to shop there.

Wonderful little shop, the florists are very good and exceptional service I have always received, Mothers Day they were extremely busy, still great service. The fruit and veg are also great and very reasonable.

The Bourne End Fruit and veg store is amazing, with lots of fresh produce and a whole lot of variety. Most of the employees are very nice and helpful however with it being Mothering Sunday and with the idea of getting my mum some nice flowers from the shop, one of the ladies with brown curlish hair was not very nice or helpful at all. I don't know much about flowers so i told her i'm not too sure where to start and with a disgusted face she told me to look myself. This obviously put me off and i decided not to buy the flowers from there. I don't believe this was great service by the florist and not welcoming at all.

So overall i would give a big thumbs up to the fruit and veg store itself but i was not satisfied by the florists.

When I lived in Flackwell Heath, I invariably came down to your shop. Superb. Now, I've moved to Bournemouth and can I get onions to pickle - bought loads from you over the years - of course not. I would like to send my daughter in to purchase some - 5kg bags, if you still stock them. I cannot find any locally for miles around. She can call in, collect them and bring them to me when she visits next week. Keep up your excellent store! Best regards.

I came all the way from Windsor to have my wedding flowers done. The girls at the Flower Room (Fruit Market)did an amazing job! They really made my day perfect. Thank you very much to everyone for a lovely and helpful service.

We use the fruit market daily. They supply us at The Old Bell, Wooburn Green with fruit and veg. Their produce is very good quality and the staff are always very friendly and helpful.

I regularly purchase my plants and flowers at the Fruit Market and I am always impressed by the choice and value. Nowhere else offers so much for so little.

Very friendly staff, lots of truly local produce. Excellant source too for unusual packaged herbs and spices. The last ones I bought there were cheaper than Tesco or Sainsbury. I also bought dried currants in there for much less per gram than at the supermarkets.

I took a couple of photos into the shop and gave Julienne my budget and she went and selected and ordered just the right flowers for the exact look my daughter wanted. The flowers really made this wedding very special. Thank you.

The Fruit Market is an excellent local business that supplies a wide range or fruit, veg, flowers and plants for good value. I shop there regularly, often purchasing plants, and find them to be exeptionally cheap and of great quality, especially when compared to other local suppliers.

We shop regularly here and are loyal customers. The service is great and I always buy my flowers here. You can have stunning arrangements made by the florist at a fraction of what you would pay a main street florist,
My only critism is that of late there has been too much produce from Belgium or other countries and it is not even possible much of the time to buy British tomatoes or mushrooms for example. I am also wary of buying soft fruit such as pears, as these fruits are often bruised.
We will continue to shop here despite our misgivings but hope these points will be observed as I would hate to see this lovely shop lose business or indeed have to close.

Sept 2012 - Been very disappointing recently, although well priced most fruit has been over rip, pineapples, coconut and kiwi fruit all passed sell by date and don't last a day after purchase. Other fruit that is OK has not been as cheap as you think. Charged 2.40 for 1.9kg of bananas = 1.26 /kg, the coop accepts credit cards and charge 1.15 /kg. The shop is not offering the bargain prices I thought.

The Fruit Market in Bourne End has a brilliant selection of fruit, vegetables, local honey, plants, and bird seed all at incredibly good prices. I find it has a wider selection than Sainsbury's and the produce is of a better quality - it's also cheaper! With Tesco about to open up virtually next door I'm determined to carry on supporting this fantastic local business!
