A food shop with personal experience

Throughout July we are working with Eastern European shops and supermarkets to help educate people from other nationalities about the amazing range of food that is available in Boston.

Lincolnshire Police and facebook group Boston More in Common came up with the idea to try and make people aware of the great opportunities that exist to buy and make something slightly different in Boston. Many people have told us that they'd love to try the products in the shops, but just don't know what to do with them, and are afraid to ask. We have spoken with the shop owners, who are very keen to help people, and the personal shopper idea was born.

On Saturday, July 8 Korzinka Taste of Europe in Field Street, Boston will have personal shopper's available meeting and greeting people at their door with a warm and friendly welcome and to shop with customers if required around their supermarkets. They will be able to educate you on a wide selection of Polish and Eastern European food including food from Lithuania, Russia, Latvia and Romania at great prices. Samples of fresh meats, dairy products and bakery items will be available to taste and your personal shopper will be able to explain how things need to be stored and cooked if required.

Recipe cards will also be available for some traditional Eastern European dishes, so if you like what you try, you can make it at home too.

There will also be volunteers from the Boston Police and members of the Boston More in Common groups who will meet at Matalan car park at 10am for a 10.15am tour and then again at 2pm for a 2.15pm tour to take groups over to Korzinka and have a tour of the shop by one of the sales assistants.

Korzinka Taste of Europe on Field Street is open daily from 8am to 12am and will shortly be opening their second store on Argyle Street in Boston.
