Award-winning artisan butcher who farm all their own meat and supply lots of the top London restaurants. In the village a short stroll away. Butterflied legs of lamb are amazing!

Butcher, not as good as Hill and Szrok on Broadway MArket. But still excellent butcher. Try the sausages. Or sausage roll to go.

It's a large supermarket with most anything you'd need. You can walk up Queensbridge Road and enter from the back of the shopping center instead of fighting crowds at the Kingsland Rd entrance.

If you're into your organic, vegetarian, whole foods, high fibre super healthy stuff, then this is the perfect grocery for you! They say, you are what you eat...

A fairly new addition to Camden – this beautiful food shopping experience is a whole lot pricier for an organic, natural selection as well as some tasty fresh soups, salads and bread.

Also known as "Whole Paycheque Market" - shop with care, as prices are crazy, but it's good for rare specialty items and health foods.
