Chatsworth Road

Nestled at the bottom of quiet, suburban streets lined with Georgian town houses, Chatsworth Road is one of East London's hidden gems. Packed with independent grocery stores and delicatessens, it is the perfect place to browse for interesting organic foodstuffs and while away a couple of hours in the shops.

The diversity of the local community is reflected by the cultures and cuisines on offer: Turkish supermarkets and kebab stores, Indian restaurants, Caribbean markets, English butchers and a French delicatessen. There is something to suit every taste and palate and if pancakes are your thing, there is even a whole restaurant, the Creperie du Monde, dedicated to this humble foodstuff.

There is a healthy selection of fruit, vegetable and grocery stores

Chatsworth Road has recently reinvigorated it's weekly food market which is held every Sunday from 11am to 4pm. We were intrigued by the kimchi burgers at Kimchi Kult, a stall dedicated to selling Korean street food. We also marvelled at the 'Sho Foo Doh', Japanese savoury pancakes with kelp, ginger and egg.

However, we went home instead with some fine organic pork and apple sausages from Downland Produce. We fancied some of their award winning 'Breakfast Marmalade' sausages but unfortunately, they were all out.

The friendly chaps at Ash Green Organics stall

We bought a pumpkin from Ash Green Organics and the friendly stall holders were very obliging, cutting it in half for us (it was too big) and even giving us a free taster of some delicious dates. I think this was because nearby there was a bit of a loud scuffle with a local ne'er do well, but the local people were determined not to let that spoil our impression of Chatsworth Road.

And it didn't. we had a lovely day and spent the rest of our time perusing the vintage clothes stall and finishing off with a delicious coffee. We'll be visiting Chatsworth Road again for the perfect, mooching, relaxing Sunday afternoon.
