Falcon Commercial are delighted to offer for sale this long established concern which enjoys all the considerable commercial advantages of a fantastic and much sought after trading position among numerous other complementary outlets and with excellent access to major road and motorway links (A38 and M5 junction 26) on the busy main central High Street of the prosperous and historic market town of Wellington near Taunton in Somerset.

Operating from extremely well fitted and presented parade premises, the business currently generates outstanding levels of turnover and profitability from the sale of an extensive selection of traditional seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables displayed to their very best advantage in a bright, spacious and well-appointed retail unit.

Mary Jenkins currently operates on a retail only basis and would naturally furnish any enthusiastic purchaser with scope for continued growth not least with regard to a degree of retail expansion and to the possible introduction of wholesale supplies services to local retail and catering establishments.
The business would also benefit greatly by the possible introduction of Sunday trading in order to improve upon the already impressive levels of turnover and profitability it has achieved since being established some thirty highly successful years ago by a husband and wife partnership with the aid of an experienced and motivated team of sales assistants who would be an asset to any purchaser and we would strongly recommend the earliest possible viewing to avoid disappointment.

Local meats and cheeses are available and a farmers market is held every first and third Saturday of the month. There are also several pubs and cafés and, as it is so close to Junction 26 of the M5, Wellington is an ideal place to break a long journey.
Wellington Food Town is a major initiative to make Wellington the 'Food Town' of Somerset and is a partnership between Somerset Food Links, Taunton Deane Borough Council and Wellington Economic Partnership.
The award-winning Wellington Park, which was given to Wellington town by the Fox family in 1903, has been restored thanks to a Heritage Lottery grant. The park was designed by F W Meyer of Exeter firm Veitch and Sons and is an important example of late Victorian design. The Friends of Wellington Park arrange a number of events in the park during the Summer months
