When my Husband & I first moved to Highbury we fell head over heels in love with a local Greengrocers. It wasn’t exactly the closest one, there was Mrs Lovell’s on Highbury Park but they were too expensive and not as good, there was our local Turkish shop who we loved but they didn’t have as much variety and it wasn’t the same quality, but Newington Green’s Greengrocers was and is a cut above the rest.
They have the juiciest limes, the hottest chillies and the plumpest tomatoes. If you want an avocado which is perfect every single time (and I know that you do), then you want to buy your avocados from here. On my last visit I even spotted that they’ve started to stock edible flowers and as a vegan with an Instagram account that excited me greatly.
They are always cheaper than the supermarket. We’d be filling up a basket to the brim and only be spending a tenner. When it was time to move out of our Highbury flat we only considered flats that were still within a walkable distance to Newington Green and we managed to snag ourselves a flat one road over! That is what you all living the dream! Even when we moved over to West London a couple of years later we were still popping back at every opportunity.
We always pop in when we are in the area but now we live in the countryside our visits are few and far between but we made sure to stop by before our visit to local vegetarian/vegan café Bodega 50. I wanted to share a few pictures from our recent visit because I miss it and who doesn’t love some gratuitous veg shots!?
