F. Milford’s: A Local Grocer in the Community of Exeter

Milford and Son’s started in 1908 as a family-run local grocer, a tradition that continues to this day.

Cousins Steve Hawley and Paul Milford began their F. Milford’s careers running the grocer’s market stall in Exeter back in the 1980’s. They have since risen within the company and are now Director’s, sourcing the best fruit and vegetables from South West suppliers for our customers and ensuring that our food safety standards remain high.

Through the years, we have expanded from a small fruit and vegetable shop in Paul street to a wholesaler based in Marsh Barton, but something that hasn’t changed is our values.

  • We work with many South West suppliers, getting our fruit and vegetables delivered to us from as close as possible to ensure that they are the best quality and freshness for our customers.
  • And, our produce isn’t the only thing that we source locally, we also buy our stationery and sundries from other local companies in and around Exeter.
  • We always either reuse our produce boxes or donate them to other local businesses who can make use of them.
  • We support many local charities and events, including Force Cancer Charity bike ride.

Our values underpin everything that we do at F. Milford’s, and as well as helping the local economy and community, they also help us reduce our carbon footprint and make us more environmentally friendly, something that is important to us as a local grocer.
