When deciding on where to live in London, you may have a clear idea of what you want to have accessible to you, on your doorstep (or at least close to your doorstep). If being near to some of the city’s best food stores ranks high on your list, then read as on as we reveal why SW1 is for foodies.
Eat well, eat organic
Known for their award-winning handmade cheeses and fresh produce grown on their organic estate, Pimlico Green’s Daylesford Organic is definitely one of London’s highlights for foodies. As well as the chance to buy organic and seasonal fruit and vegetables delivered fresh from the farm every day, you can take five after your shopping to enjoy a coffee and sweet treat in the café. Throughout the year this popular farm shop also hosts supper clubs, seasonal tasting sessions and cookery demonstrations and workshops for adults and children:
A cheese lover’s paradise in Pimlico
We have a feeling that even the most knowledgeable of cheese experts may be left spoilt for choice with a visit to Rippon Cheeses. Famous for its extensive range of 500 types of sheep, goat and cows milk cheeses, for over twenty years this store has provided locals with some of the best cheeses from around England and across Europe. Make sure you take advantage of the expert advice on offer as they definitely know what they are talking about here. The proof is in the tasting.
Fresh is best
Bringing together local and international flavours, Pimlico’s Lush Deli offers the opportunity to buy high quality fresh produce, complete with friendly advice and a smile. With a strong belief that food should be enjoyed in its purest form, you will find their produce as natural as possible, packed with interesting flavours from around the world.
Shop in SW1 without leaving home
But, if it’s convenience, friendly shopkeepers and quality that top your local shopping wish list, you may like to hear that if you live at Dolphin Square you don’t have to leave the site to shop. You can do your essential shopping within the square, leaving more time to enjoy the local restaurants, markets and cafés.
