Olives and More now open
New to 13 Perry Vale is ‘Olives and More’, which sells the finest Spanish extra virgin olive oils, made from a number of varieties of olive, each of which has its own distinctive taste. There are monthly Olive Tasting Workshops where you can learn how olive oil is produced, its uses and health benefits (for details and booking visit mardeolivos.co.uk/olivesandmore).
The shop also sells olives by weight, and other products made with extra virgin olive oil such as tapenade, chocolate and honey.
Forest Hill’s Co-op has moved
The Co-op grocery store has moved to Stanstead Road, next to Shurgard Self-Storage. The new store is much larger and more spacious than the previous one. There is more retail space for fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled and frozen food, groceries, household goods and off-licence sales. There is also an in-house bakery.
There is a small car park at the side, but note that Co-op parking is at the back (access through the gate) and limited to 30 minutes.
