Brixton Cornercopia is a tiny neighbourhood restaurant and new kind of cornershop all about ultra-local food and sustainability. We are located in the vibrant heart of Brixton Village Market and our food celebrates the abundancy and diversity of ingredients and available on our doorstep, in the market or through local growers and artisan makers. Cornercopia is run by Anne Fairbrother and chef Ian Riley and was established through the Spacemakers empty shops initiative.
On our menu we use primarily market sourced, locally grown or foraged ingredients. A typical summer menu might include Dorset Mullet bought from Daegons the local fishmonger, vegetables, herbs and spices from the surrounding market, fresh green leaves from the farmers market and a pudding made with local allotment grown damson, all washed down with an English white wine. For examples of recent menu's please see the blog section.
On the shelves of our small corner shop you will find jars of damson jam made with fruit collected from the gardens around Brockwell park, honey made by South London bees, next to pots of mango and habenero relish and bottles of Brixton Pound sauce made using ingredients sourced in Brixton market. All the food is made by us or other small producers in South London. The furthest afield of our chutney makers is from Croyden, but most makers live within a couple of miles.
