The People’s Supermarket announces Homerton site
An unusual supermarket offering an alternative to multinationals has revealed the site in Homerton where it might set up a store.
Member-owned social enterprise The People’s Supermarket (TPS) has earmarked a building in Sedgwick Street – but still wants to hear whether Homerton and Hackney residents would support its second store.
TPS featured in a Channel 4 documentary earlier this year, when celebrity chef Arthur Potts Dawson helped establish the social enterprise in Bloomsbury.
The Bloomsbury supermarket is mainly staffed by its 1200 member volunteers, and prides itself on stocking local and responsibly sourced food.
The Sedgwick Street site is owned by social housing group Viridian Housing which is struggling to let the three empty business units.

There will also be a stall at Chatsworth Road Market on Sundays until October 9.
