Established in 2008 by Charlie and Frank Boxer and Luigi deLieto, Italo strives to reflect the values of its community and remain inclusive for all. Italo Deli offers a wide variety, from baked goods and condiments, to dairy, pasta and positively indulgent ice cream. Bespoke hampers and other gifts are also available – a perfect way to treat someone special. And, if you fancy a quick cup of coffee mid-shop as the sun rises slowly behind the trees of Bonnington Square, Italo has you covered with their small in-store cafe, which serves the finest Italian fare that will make you question whether you really are in London, and not Italy itself.
If you are always the first to the cheese board and last to leave it at Christmas, (that’s us!) La Fromagerie will be your new best friend. Tucked away on Moxon Street, this utter cheese-heaven will leave you overwhelmed with choice, with distinctive varieties from France, Holland, Germany and Belgium, just to name a few. Also on offer are baked goods, fresh meats from Yorkshire, and other mouth-watering dishes, all freshly prepared in La Fromagerie’s kitchen. We suggest you set aside lots of time in your day to enjoy wholly and undisturbed. Tastings are available and, in our opinion, are an absolute must!
Champions of sustainable, regenerative and community-supported agriculture, Spring To Go pride themselves in their approach to revolutionise the food system. With the prosperity of local farmers and small producers being a key incentive, Spring To Go offers the freshest organic eggs, milk and cream from Heckfield Home Farm, as well as charming little boxes of biodynamic produce from Fern Verrow. In addition, you can find jams, cakes, cordials, pastries and naturally fermented breads, all neatly wrapped in packaging that has been made from plants, and is either compostable or recyclable. So, if you purchase their Fern Verrow Vegetable Box, you’ll be doing your bit for the environment too!
