# We are trying to avoid the major supermarkets at the moment to cut down on the number of people we are near so visited a local farm shop yesterday to do our essential shopping: fresh meat, fruit and veg, etc. We were amazed by how well organised they were.
There was a large marquee serving as a controlled entry point with a one-way system for entry and exit, plenty of hand gel and a disinfectant pump for the shopping baskets. Inside they were keen to encourage shoppers to stick to social distancing guidelines and had tape delimiters around all of the serving counters for customers to stand behind.
The shop was busier than we would normally expect (others likely had the same idea) but the shelves were still very full and we were able to get everything we needed, and more. It has been difficult getting the fresh food we need from the larger retailers so knowing the farm shop is both well stocked and taking everyone's health and safety so seriously is a major boost. And it's good to support local business.
