I'm aware that Good Taste sells craft ales and quality wine but I'd love to see something similar to these shops in Fulham and Putney respectively:

And thinking about it can we have a Bavarian sausage stall which also sells quality beers, coffee and gluhwein. On a recent trip to Nurnberg we went to one each day. The locals used it for breakfast, lunch and simply a place to stop, catch-up and enjoy a beer/gluhwein. The space on Westow Street between SE19 and the hairdresser would be ideal. No doubt it would fall foul of our ludicrous licensing laws.

 

The triangle doesn't really need more eateries but I'd like to see a decent old fashioned chippy with laminate tables serving quality northern style fish and chips with scraps mushy peas and gravy (a rare thing in London) with steaming hot mugs of tea.

 

Oh and maybe somewhere to hire vintage films. I'd like to see All the President's Men but short of joining a Love Film equivalent you're stuck these days. Living in the past maybe...

A decent chippy would be good.

Also a Malaysian restaurant and maybe a Keralan/South Indian/Sri Lankan one.

Having lived in Tooting virtually all my life and now living in Crystal Palace I really miss the variety of fruit and veg I used to get in Tooting.  The boxes of mangos they sell in the summer are sublime.  Quality butchers and fishmongers where you know where the products are sourced from would go down a treat. I love to cook from scratch and have to go elsewhere to source meat, fish, spices, herbs and other ingredients.  I prefer to buy locally and support the independent shops where I live.

Living in Beckenham I've come to quite like the cook shop we have down here called the Kitchen Range. I think that could do well in CP

I love cook shops so it could be very dangerous on my pocket having one in CP. Nice idea though.

I completely agree with tfk, it's nice that we've finally got the farmers market, but a permanent fruit/veg stand would be fantastic near each of the stations - there is plenty of room in front of Crystal Palace.

Mmm, I know that shop in Beckenham.  I'd like to see one in CP too.

You could always start up a restaurant in Penge and be full most evenings! The lack of restaurants here us much lamented and one Italian that opened fairly recently is continually packed. U suppose the rent this way might be favourable as well

However if your heart is set on CP then your idea is a lovely one and if love to try Peruvian food at sensible prices.

A local greengrocers, fishmongers, cheese shop and a butchers and a  gorgeous cookshop to complement them all please.     

 

 

I also think an Oliver Bonas and a Neals Yard would not go amiss!

The fishmongers on Penge High St. is pretty decent. Just a skip and a hop and a short bus journey from CP.
