Ten thoughts on top Marple Traders

Rachel reminded me that the Marple Leaf hasn't been about Marple much lately. Ten thoughts therefore on my favourite ten shops and traders in Marple.

M & Co - change their stock regularly, cheap and good quality kids and casual clothes.

Grenaby Farm - this must be where steak pies go when they die. The best by a mile.

Deli Select - a treasure trove of cheese, snacks and treats.

Toast - cosy and friendly place for a cake and a coffee.

The Co-op - when you just need something when the cupboard is bare.

Harrods - for his impudence and knowledge of car parts

Dolce Vita - Wolfie warned me this was rubbish. I take his word for it, but the refurb and the new menu have created a buzzy happy place. No need for a Piccolino here.

Marple Wine bar - Murillos tapas bar is great for a table full of tapas and a bottle of rose wine on a hot day. Choose carefully, mind.

White's Butchers - Some great cuts and always with a smile

Controversially, Greenhalgh's - I don't usually like bakery chains, but they're lovely people and the sausage rolls are very good.
