June 15, 2013… Save the date! Transition Town Brixton (TTB) is organizing an open day: a celebration of TTB projects including the Brixton Pound! We’ve decided to hijack the event and turn it into a ‘shop local’ day. We will be encouraging Brixtonites (even more than usual!) to support their local, independent businesses. We’ll have a number of stalls around Brixton, so come and meet us, set up your B£e accounts, and spend your B£s in local shops!
Since this is a celebration of local shopping, we’ll be celebrating our local businesses as well! We’re launching a new blog series called: “#yourpound: Meet the trader”. Over the next month, up to the 15th of June, we will write a weekly post on a local business where you can go and spend your Brixton Pounds…. And we’ll promote the business using the hashtag: #yourpound… Help us spread the word!!
If you are in a rush, or if you are looking somewhere where to sit and have lunch, Healthy Eaters is the place to go. If it looks busy, be sure to check out the downstairs where there are plenty more tables and seats.
Want to know more? Just ask Stafford, the owner. He first opened his stall in the market 2003, and the actual shop in 2009. His passion for food, especially for genuine food, is seen in one of Brixton’s most interesting businesses.
So what are you waiting for? Use your Brixton Pounds to buy your lunch at Healthy Eaters (simply use Pay by Text username ‘healthy’) … and let us know what you think on Twitter using the hashtag #yourpound
