Annies Fruit Shop in Ticklemore Street
Annies, in Ticklemore Street, Totnes, has been a same family-run fruit and veg shop for more than 40 years. It was opened by Torquay-born Roy Johnson (who is still involved in the business) and his wife, Felicity Ann (from whom it took its name). Today it’s owned and run by Roy’s son, Sean, who was born in Broomborough Hospital, Totnes (“They closed the hospital down the following week,” says Sean with a smile).
Shopping habits have changed dramatically over that 40+ years, particularly with the rise of supermarkets, but Annies has weathered every trading storm, while other local specialist food stores closed around us. The secret to our continued success is a combination of traditional and modern thinking. The high-quality fresh produce and good old-fashioned friendly service has kept generations coming back for more – and in ever-increasing numbers as today’s shoppers are again recognising the value of local, independent shops.
Annies is perfectly placed to meet the demands of the green-minded shopper – just check out the plastic-free packaging, eco products and wholefoods, sold in-store or through in-store pickup. Decades of experience and contacts in the fruit and veg business means Annies can beat all the other local specialist outlets – and often supermarkets too – on price. So Annies is the perfect example of a business for our times: local, independent and traditional – but with modern eco values and keen prices into the bargain. We are the greener green grocer at the heart of the revival in ‘real’ community shopping.

The Annies shop, in Ticklemore Street, Totnes, is everything a traditional, independent greengrocers should be – brought bang up to date with a full range of eco products and wholefoods. Add a strong plastic-free, sustainable ethos and you’ve discovered one of the greenest shops in the area.
The full range of fresh, mouth-watering produce is beautifully displayed by the friendly staff who take the time to ensure shopping can still be the relaxed, family-friendly social event it always used to be. You can choose between organic and traditional, with an emphasis on locally grown, all keenly priced thanks to our decades of experience and contacts in the business. Alongside the British fruit and veg staples, you’ll find a tempting selection of the more exotic – choosing your five-a-day has never been so easy, or as tasty. And you’re welcome to try before you buy!
There’s dairy too, including a tasty selection of cheeses, milk and organic butter. And who could resist our wide choice of olives and antipasti – sold in compostable pots, of course. And it doesn’t stop at fresh produce. A leisurely browse round the shop will see you ticking off that healthy eating shopping list: Eco cleaning and toiletry products – from washing-up liquid and fabric conditioner refills to paper-wrapped soaps and shampoo bars, all from carefully selected brands (including Bio-D, Ecoleaf and Faith in Nature).
And Annies is easy to access too – just off Fore Street (almost opposite Ticklemore Cheese shop), and a short walk from Victoria Street.
Due to COVID-19 some changes have been made to the Annies shop. There’s a one-way system in place, making it easier for you to socially distance. We also have a hand sanitising station at the till.
We’re very grateful for all the support we’ve received from you during this difficult time, and in return we strive to offer you quality organic groceries for the lowest price.
