A fourth generation greengrocery business originating in Richmond, London. Albert Fletcher would jump on his horse and cart and make his way to Covent Garden Market daily. He made the journey so often, he could have a nap on the way as the horse knew where he was going. The family moved to Wokingham in 1939 and set up a greengrocery shop in Peach Street. After Bert retired, sons Vic and Keith took over serving Wokingham town for an additional 48 years.
Vic then sold the shop and moved to Ashridge Manor Farm where he set up Ashridge Manor Garden Centre. His sons, Dean and Stuart, took over the greengrocery side, concentrating on the wholesale business. Following the success, the brothers, with the help of Stuart’s son, Kurt, decided to set up Fletchers Food Market at the garden centre, selling fresh fruit and vegetables and other tasty produce in February 2017.
A lot has changed over the years, but the service, quality and customer experience hasn’t changed a bit. We are a family who is passionate in delivering great, fresh food to your table.
Bringing our traditional trade into the modern world
Click and Collect is the latest venture for us. We realise for some people time is precious and with free parking and disabled bays right outside, this service would be both convenient and time saving. We are starting this service with our fresh fruit and vegetables with plans to expand to all the other exciting produce we sell in the shop.
