One of the most common questions of any American moving to London is where the best place to buy food is. Depending on where one lives in the States prior to moving to London the answer can be either familiar or completely alien. Unlike much of the United States where the giant box store reigns supreme the Londoners shop all around town at local grocers, specialty stores and outdoor markets. There is no better way for an American moving to London to learn the city, especially their neighborhood, than when shopping for food.
Food is an internationally spoken language and for those Americans moving to London it is a wonderful way to learn about British culture. Much like in the states, London has a thriving farmer’s market association with markets in just about every neighborhood.
With the worldwide move to healthier eating and organic food, if you’re an American moving to London, you may be asking if there is a good range of whole food stores and shops that only sell organic food.
