The world's oldest green grocers is set to finally close its doors - having sold fruit and veg to thousands of customers for over 130 YEARS.

The Grade II listed thatched property - built in 1610 - has been an independent family-run business since the late 19th century.

Jackson’s County Fruit Stores in Stafford, sells everything from traditional potatoes, apples and pears to exotic Thai and Caribbean vegetables.

The business - which also stocks locally made homemade jams, pickles, honey and breads - has passed through six monarchs, 35 Prime Ministers and two World Wars.
