Long live cornershops! Caroline Craig and Sophie Missing pick a quartet in (mostly) east London.
'Bread, pizza and incredible deli produce. On our last visit there, we had a glass of prosecco with the owner's son as it was his birthday.' 152-156 Lower Clapton Rd, E5 0QJ. Clapton Overground.
GREEN ON THE GREEN
'Local grocer with what is arguably the best range of veg in London, and at prices that won't leave you gasping.' 109 Newington Green Rd, N1 4QY. Canonbury Overground.
HOW I NEED YOU
'Classic seasonal produce as well as more unusual bits like monk's beard and cobnuts. The veg box scheme is the envy of anyone unfortunate enough to live outside the catchment area.' 15-17 Calvert Avenue, E2 7JP. Shoreditch High St Overground.
EAST IS EAST
'When we don't want to go into "town", we come here to stock up on chilli sauce, shallot flakes, noodles, green papaya, frozen dumplings and kitchen utensils.' 25 Hackney Rd, E2 7NX. Shoreditch High St Overground.
