Richard’s Fruit, Vegetables and Flowers is our town centre greengrocer and florist.
Richard’s is something of a Topsham institution. The Tucker family has been at Heathfield Farm, Woodbury Salterton for over 500 years and possibly even longer. In the late 1890s, Richard Tucker’s great-grandmother used to come to Topsham to sell produce from the farm such as milk, eggs, and seasonal vegetables. Richard’s father kept a market garden and delivered vegetables, dairy produce and eggs to customers in Topsham from his van. Richard’s mother made clotted cream on the old Rayburn cooker, and this too was sold in Topsham.
From these beginnings, Richard’s business began. Richard took over the van deliveries when he was just 17 and has been involved in supplying Topsham with vegetables, fruit and flowers ever since. Today Richard and Janet Tucker have been on the Topsham Fore Street for over 25 years, and at their present shop location for the past 15 years, providing the community with the best selection of vegetables, fruit and flowers.
In addition to the retail shop, Richard regularly supplies restaurants in Topsham and elsewhere. If you are looking for something special, he is always happy to try to source it for you.
Richard’s Florist supplies flowers and floral arrangements to Topsham and the Exeter area. The business has grown to meet the demand for reasonably priced, creatively arranged, beautiful and fresh flowers delivered direct to your home or business.
For national and international deliveries of flowers, Richard and his team work with the best and most reliable floral companies.
