Thackray Brown North Greenwich Pop Up

Thackray Brown pop-up

Head to North Greenwich Pier this summer to indulge in fine British produce from Thackray Brown!

Thackray Brown are passionate food lovers who go out of their way to find the best artisans in their fields from across the UK. Britain has an abundance of international award-winning products and the artisans they work with craft their produce on a small scale which ensures their standards remain exceptionally high. Their produce is not found in supermarkets, but instead is available from local farmers' markets, food fairs and delis (and now at a pop-up!)

The pop-up will be open Wednesdays to Sundays, between 10:00 and 18:00.
