Wigston Fields News & Deli
Wigston Fields News & Deli – aka #notjustacornershop – is a family-run corner shop in Wigston Magna, Leicester. Owners Pratik & Bee Master have turned it into a local food hub, showcasing local artisan producers. In doing so they became our Food Heroes of the Year 2020.
They replaced bottles of Echo Falls with excellent Leicestershire wines from Rothley Wine Estate; swapped standard sliced bread for loaves from Hambleton Bakery and Bisbrooke Artisans; exchanged plastic milk cartons for bottles from Vine Farm Dairy of Great Dalby.
Tens of local producers and retailers are represented in the shop, including Melton Charcuterie, Gelato Village, Cocoa Amore, Choux’tique and Christopher James Delicatessen. What’s more, ready-to-cook curries from Lilu’s kitchen are available every weekend.
