HAP HOP - new deli for Honor Oak

More good news from our independent retail sector: Hills & Parkes are swapping their deli stall for a more permanent home. They say:


We are delighted to announce that Hills & Parkes Deli is relocating from its weekend station pitch to shop premises at 49 Honor Oak Park Road. We open for business on Monday August 15th at 11:00am and will be trading 6 days a week. We look forward to welcoming you to a new shopping delight on the HoP High Street.

We are becoming saturated with this stuff

DJ said...

No. We're really not.

What the area needs is a first class cupcake supplier - i've had enough of these frivolous delis.

Great news! Surely all of these deli-entrepreneurs must know other like-minded people who could make some other types of business work around here too though? Even if one of them opened a quality bakery or something it would make a nice change!

We don't need a bakery, they sell loaves of good, honest Hovis in Costcutter!

Crofton Cath said...

Great to have business opening rather than closing on HOP. Good luck in your venture!

But will it sell good honest food though? Huh? Huh?

TM said...

Speak for yourself Anon @14.39. I long for a decent bakers within walking distance of where I live.

I so miss the toast of my youth which no modern mass produced loaf seems to be able to match.

This is especially true of Hovis which seems to have a sweet sickly taste nowadays.

Look as long as it's all locally sourced, organic, gluten free, carbon neutral, supports biodiversity, and fits in with my raw food macrobiotic diet then I'm all for it.

You wouldn't know a macrobiotic diet if it came round your house and slapped you in the face with a wet spinach leaf...

Well done!!

@tutu wearer - have you looked in the window of the Broca recently? Cup cakes galore, not to mention some of the finest fruit tarts and bakewell tart I've seen in many a long day. All fresh and baked in Brockley. Knocks Costa and Starbucks into a cocked hat.

pip (heavier by the weight of a piece of apricot tart)

PS rather a new deli than another fast food outlet.

it's a great news for the gentrifying SE4! what I really miss in the area is wooden cooked bread like they do at FrancoManca down in Brixton...
to be honest I'm not a big fan of Delis as they normally have overpriced, eco-friendly, organic(?) products...stuff that you can normally find at tesco nowdays for much cheaper...

Yes, the gentrification is pushing ahead. Supercuts down, Hap Hop Up

Headhunter you really are a wally of the lowest order.

The fact that someone who posts comments like this* you is regarded as a "respected local" says so much about the utter bollocks of that this site and that forum represents.


*"I saw a big chavvy looking guy clearly training fighting dogs along the side of the park once though"
Wonder what he thought when saw you?

@Anon 20:08 Must be awfully difficult for you to type with that straitjacket.

I came across this earlier, anyone know any more

No. Do you??

Looks interesting!

My only experience of Hills and Parkes is the sausage rolls they sell out of Peter James the butchers. They use his sausage meat, wrap it in nice pastry and he then sells them. They are really really nice sausage rolls.

With the best will in the world, I don't think a sausage roll can be considered 'mung'. It more likely falls under the category of 'good honest grub' (as these seem to be the only two food types recognised on this blog).

I think it's great that two local women are opening a local business selling good quality products. But I am clearly blinded by class prejudice and a desire to eat 18 kinds of olive. Even though they will be selling sausage rolls. *sigh*

Molewife said...

@ D and B - I don't know much about it either but they have just started following me on Twitter (@brockleymarket). The profile reads 'a new Saturday market - coming soon to SE4' - which seems fairly straightforward. I think there was a post on here about it too?

Marvellous news - saw the poor lady battling the elements on saturday morning in their temporary stall by the station. They have a great spot and great looking premises to work with. I go to the wonderful Neroli beauticians in HOP quite regularly so look forward to picking a few things up from this place at the same time now. Then pop back on the train one stop for a coffee at Broca. Living the dream...!!
