Feast Your Eyes, Tanners Hill, Deptford

A ray of hope in a darkening world... news of a new deli in Deptford. For those people who despair of the marketing prowess of our local businesses, this one's even got a logo. Feast Your Eyes:

Feast Your Eyes Limited, following on from the success of Feast Your Eyes at Laban café, are very proud to announce the opening of the first Deli in Deptford. The deli situated on the newly pedestrianised Tanners Hill, SE8 4PJ, tel: 0208 692 7399 will be very big on sustainability with the aim of reducing packaging to the bare minimum.

We will encourage people to bring in jars or buy them from us to stock up on our home produced items such as Hummus, Pesto, Dressings, Jams and Chutneys. Not only will this impact positively on the environment but will make artisan items that much cheaper without all the fuss.

For sale or in use will be local produce such as Deptford Creek Honey, Deptford Organic Green tomato chutney, herbs and jelly’s using herbs form the famous Herb Garden on McMillan Street - Deptford , Organic Lamb from Woodlands Farm trust on shooter’s Hill. We have also been encouraging locals to bring us fruit from their gardens which we have been turning in to chutneys and jams and next year we expect to be overwhelmed with produce form Growing Greenwich (GCDA) .

We will also offer a range of goods carefully selected from members of the slow food movement such as cheese from Piedmont, Italy , stonebaked organic bread from Dulwich and Artisan pastries from Greenwich. We have been scouring long and hard for olive oil which we will sell from a drum so you can just bring a bottle and fill it up. We will aim to sell all those little things you just can not buy in Deptford such as 24 month aged parmesan, Mozzarella di Buffalo, Artisan cheddar, Parma Ham, Home Roast Beef , Hot Salt Beef. Chilled home cooked ready meals based on local, seasonal and organic ingredients with a large selction of Vegan and vegetarian food will also be available. We will offer 4-5 types of Fair Trade Organic Coffee beans which can be ground to take away or if you choose, drink an extra special coffee in our warm seated area. We will of course be offering Christmas specials such as organic Christmas puddings, homemade mincemeat, chestnuts, dried fruits, Loch Fyne smoked salmon and oysters to order as well as hampers. Seasonal specials to eat in or take away such as venison stew will be available daily as well as a homemade soup, sandwiches, pates and salads too name but a few.

Open 5 days a week 0800 1930 Tuesday and Wednesday , 0800-2130 Thursday and Friday, Saturday 0800-1800. Once we have gauged the local take up opening days and hours may change so look out. We hope to be able to offer a fine selction of wines and beers for take away or consumption on the premises in the near future. We look forward to seeing you soon.
