What with the Russian Tea Rooms recently closing down in Primrose Hill and a number of other independent shops and businesses suffering from higher rent and big fat supermarkets moving in it’s time we supported our smaller shops.
Sometimes however it is a bit of a chore to go around a lot of small independent shops rather than trot into a Sainsburys or such like but that is where Hubbub is helping you out.
Hubbub is a London based Ocado style delivery service for local, independent shops [greengrocer / butcher / baker etc.] that was begun by Marisa, a former human rights lawyer turned entrepreneur.
Hubbub aims to support and drive sales for the local high street. Servicing areas across London. Hubbub can deliver from all sorts of independent shops with a big list online. Some recent favourites include The Ginger Pig [Hackney] and La Fromagerie [Islington] as well as smaller independents like Ayres the Bakers [Nunhead] and Mrs Lovell’s Greengrocer [Highbury].
With food able to be delivered straight to your door and also often on the same day this makes a far more convenient alternative to going to the supermarket.
