small but perfectly formed - excellent fruit and veg at very reasonable prices, with friendly service; great plants and flowers
Local legend Mick has been working on the fruit and veg stall in Hildreth Street for 52 years!!!! Started when he was ten years old working on his family's stall. All the new stuff on Hildreth Street is appreciated by many - the aussie foodie joints, bakeries, scented candles, bikramyogo, wine tasting and even cosmetic surgery BUT the fruit and veg stall is always worth a visit for a piece of local history and a natter with Mick. An actual cockney in Balham,who knew! Alsomeans you're not buying your groceries from the local supermarket giants. The florist stall next to it, also a survivor worth perusing.
Most interesting to learn of a street in London named Hildreth..Would anyone know from what Hildreth this street got its name? Wonder if there are stalls there now selling fruits and vegetables.
