Tuck Shop is Hackney Wick's new grocer and bottle shop on Fish Island

Tuck Shop Fish Island London

Hackney Week residents looking for somewhere locally to buy groceries and household goods that are ethical and sustainable now have a new place to shop. Tuck Shop, which opened its doors last weekend on Fish Island, is what's being described as a "consciously curated general store, butcher and drink-in bottle shop".

What that means is you can pick up everything from ethically-sourced dairy and meat items to bread from local baker Bakery 4, pastries from Chow and coffee from Ozone. Household items include a refill station for household goods and If the idea of even shopping is too much at the end of a hard day, just pop in for tasting plates of cheese, meat and veggies and a glass of natural wine.

The store has been a labour of love by locals Samantha Scott and Jake Costain which crowdfunded to get the money they needed to launch. As Sam explains: "We were frustrated that we couldn’t just walk to a shop in Hackney Wick to buy both refillable products but also consciously-sourced meat and veg – especially during COVID, we need local options. Jake being a butcher and myself helping brands to grow their businesses, teaming up we knew we could make this happen."
