Founded in 2015 by Vicky Skingley, Good Food was crowdfunded by 350 local residents and businesses. Local residents were tired of losing high street shops to residential conversions and residents surveys identified a real hunger for a better local shopping experience. When we opened, we wanted to put local quality food back on the map in Catford, and create jobs in our local economy. Our second shop in Sydenham opened in September 2020.
We’re not a health food shop; We’re not an exclusively vegan or vegetarian food shop. We’re a modern grocery and social enterprise; all the money you spend in-store is reinvested in the business, goes to pay the London Living Wage and to improve our service.
We are rammed with a thoughtfully curated range of artisan, seasonal and sustainable everyday groceries sourced from small, local producers and brands that trade responsibly, fairly and sustainably. We sell organic fruit and veg; artisan breads and pastries; wines from small independent producers (some organic); a range of locally brewed craft beer; Neal’s Yard cheese; British charcuterie; organic packaging-free groceries and deli fine foods.
