COMMUNITY | WE'VE TEAMED UP WITH HACKNEY ESSENTIALS

HACKNEY ESSENTIALS GROCERY SHOP AND LOCAL FOOD DELIVERY

Our lovely London shop has been sat temporarily closed for too long during this lockdown period. So we were thrilled when Hackney Essentials got in touch to propose a collaboration, allowing us to open our doors once more and support our local community.

Hackney Essentials is an East London grocery shop and home delivery service for people in Hackney and Tower Hamlets who wish to shop and support local.

They offer a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables, organic and free range eggs, sourdough bread and pantry items including flour, pasta, spreads, beer and wine, with new products added every day. Hackney Essentials will stock local producers including E5 bread, Kompassion Kombucha, London Borough of Jam preserves, Grand Howl coffee, Norah’s Brownies, Allpress coffee, Minor Figures oat milk and local beers including 40ft Brewery and Forest Road Brewery, Howling Hopes Inc. PLUS a colourful assortment of complimentary goods from Artisans & Adventurers including our signature woven African storage baskets, perfect for carrying all your essentials home in.

Established at the start of the lockdown, Hackney Essentials currently occupy three spaces: Artisans & Adventurers on Columbia Road, Modern Affairs vegan bar & kitchen in London Fields, and Hector & Noble pub in Victoria Park Village.

EVENT | INDEPENDENT RETAILER MONTH
EVENT | INDEPENDENT RETAILER MONTH

July 09, 2020

Did you know that there is a whole month dedicated to independent businesses just like ours? July marks independent retailer month, a campaign that runs annually throughout July to highlight the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole. We think buying from small, local and independent businesses is truly just magical! Here at Artisans & Adventurers we pour love and care into each and every product you find on our shop shelves and we like to think that's obvious to you, our customers, when you pay us a visit or make a purchase. It's true what they say, "when you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance!" So to mark Independent Retailer Month, we wanted to tell you a little bit more about this amazing campaign and how you can get involved.

ETHICAL CHOCOLATE FOR WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY
ETHICAL CHOCOLATE FOR WORLD CHOCOLATE DAY

July 07, 2020

July really is a month packed full of wonderful events we can't help but get behind! Not only is it the month of Plastic Free July & Independent Retailer Month (both of which you can read more about in our previous journal posts!) but it is also World Chocolate Day! How fabulous is that? Like most people, we love chocolate, but it is important to us to know that our favourite sweet treat is ethically sourced and produced. Unfortunately, many of our favourite chocolate bars that grace supermarket shelves are not ethically produced, and the people who grow the cocoa are treated very poorly. In fact, child labour and slave labour is all too common in the production of chocolate and the growing practise can also be incredibly harmful for the environment. If you want to learn more, we recommend watching the short 2010 documentary The Dark Side of Chocolate which provides a heart-wrenching insight into the business of chocolate. However, that doesn't mean all chocolate is bad, in fact there are some wonderful companies producing delicious, ethical chocolate that you can enjoy guilt free.
