Brixton Cornercopia

cornercopia

A corner store selling delicious locally made food and a project collecting food stories — ingredients, recipes and people.

Cornercopia is all about celebrating the uniqueness of Brixton market and it’s people — the abundance of raw ingredients, diversity of produce people make themselves, the people that make the market very special, their personal stories and recipes. The shop will provide nutritional and healthy eating knowledge by building awareness of quality recipes and homemade foods based on sources across many cultural traditions.

It also aims to reinforce the essential tradition of the market – which is the provision of fresh foods to the local population. This is an element which has disappeared from many markets, displaced by supermarkets, and replaced by low value non-​food imported products unrelated to local production, skills and components.

Brixton Cornercopia is now open in Unit 65 at Brixton Village.

You can join their online community at the Brixton Cornercopia Ning site.
