A newly opened food shop in Ely Market Place has been praised online for its variety of stock, especially during a time where there is a food shortage warning. 

Ely Food Centre, an international supermarket ran by Guzel Miroslavov, has been open for just under two months.

The shop sells a variety of foods from different countries, but also foods you’d find in UK supermarkets.
