Sweet organic grocery shop with wooden crates and bouquets on the ceiling. Swing by here and pick up your fresh veg and what have you, or better yet park up out front and enjoy a coffee. All bread comes locally from The Spence Bakery down the road in Stoke Newington, while coffee beans come from trusty roasters All Press.

All your grocery needs and then some, Palm 2 (we don’t know of a Palm 1) is much, much more than your local supermarket. You’ll find plenty of local produce on these shelves, including Beavertown beers and Union coffee, while there’s heaps to snack on from the deli section too. Does your corner shop do a Sunday roast? Didn’t think so, but this one does! Tables out front are perfect for soaking up a spot of sun and shooting the shit with your neighbours, while the cheeky coffee window means you can grab a quick one on the go.
Growing Communities Farmers' Market
Wake up early this Saturday and take a stroll down to this sustainable farmer's market, right on the border of Dalston and Stokey. Every farmer at this market has been certified as either organic or bio-dynamic, which will be music to the ear of those with a healthy green conscience. Grab your weekly bulk of fruit and veggies here and not only will you enjoy the fresh taste of quality produce, but you will also help support small sustainable farms and farmers around London - it's an all-round win.
Drinks in jam jars, payments taken in BitCoin, crazily creative cakes - this outrageously on-trend cafe is well worth the minute stroll from Stratford. This haunt is home to some bare good vibes, and its home-baked tarts, quiches, breads and freshly ground coffee will undoubtedly make Sawmill a regular lunchtime hangout for all you East London heads.
If you’re looking for a place to work, sip cocktails and take your mum for brunch, then we’ve got just the spot. The third of its name, Caravan Bankside is a warm and unpretentious hub, where veggies can indulge in homemade cheeses, freshly roasted coffees and sexy signature dishes - like the baked eggs with tomato pepper ragout, greek yoghurt and aleppo chilli, or the jalapeño cornbread French toast. If you’re more of a meat eater, try the hot chilli crab slaw, or the cured meats selection - paired with a classic cocktail and a good conversation.
