A new wholefood shop on Caledonian Road

Packet array

A new wholefood shop opened at 290 Caledonian Road (almost opposite Iceland) just before the end of last year. It sells healthy, organic and “free from” foods, and various other products. It offers home delivery as well as being open from early in the morning until late at night from Monday to Saturday. The owner, Amit, is looking to build his stock and client base. Supporting his efforts would let us see this local business grow.

The Farm Direct food ordering service

Photo3Farm Direct is a food ordering service, based just by Highbury Fields, that allows Islington residents to order food from the Home Counties.

Much more than just a veg box scheme, it is a grocer, butcher and fishmonger rolled into one, offering meat, veggies, fruit, fish, bakery, dairy, home made foods (made in Highbury) – all British, and all supporting local and smaller scale food producers. No tie-ins or weekly commitments – open Friday to Sunday each week.
