We were pretty excited last month by the news that superlative fruit and veg folk Natoora had opened a space in Selfridges, but they've gone one step further this week, opening their own standalone shop in Sloane Square. It's the second store for the company (they already have a store in Chiswick and a stall down near Maltby) but it's their first in central London and it sounds impressive.
What is brand-new is the range of dishes-to-go they've developed at the SW1 shop. There'll be breakfast pots, fruit salads and juices, lunch salads, vegetable sides and mains, and herbal infusions - all made on site.
The two floored shop certainly hasn't stinted when it comes to showcasing all that great produce - they've used cooling system similar to those you'd find in cheese shops to keep the fruit fresh. And there are plans to convert the top floor to a space for cooking demonstrations and talks by the chefs and growers Natoora works with.
Natoora Sloane Square is now open at 245 Pavilion Road London SW1X 0BP. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday: 8am - 7pm Sunday & Bank Holidays: 10am - 4pm. Keep up with their news on Twitter @natoora.
