The Taste Space

Slow Food's first Shop in a major capital city-- The Taste Space – in Seven Dials, Covent Garden, London opens its doors


The Taste Space – the first ever Slow Food shop to open in London!

When we moved to Covent Garden two years ago, one of the great opportunities we saw ahead was being able to utilise the retail space. The area surrounding the shop is a buzzing and hugely touristic part of London so we hope to welcome many visitors. This is a real, tangible opportunity for all of us as part of the Slow Food global family to drive visibility to the greater public’s awareness of Slow Food’s work in supporting local producers.

The shop shelves are filled with exceptional artisan products that support the ethos of Slow Food: examples of these include Halen Mon Sea Salt from Anglesey, Kentish Cobnut Oil, Jersey Black Butter and many others. Alongside some of the UK Ark of Taste products we will also shortly be showcasing a range of International Ark of Taste products from all over the world as they contribute to the great global landscape of edible biodiversity.

In addition to Slow Food UK branded merchandise a fantastic selection of cookbooks and Slow Food related publications will be available for purchase and reference. The Taste Space will also act as a focal point and engagement space for our different educational programmes. Furthermore we plan to utilize this space for events such as tastings, book signings, chef presentations, producer talks and as a venue where all Slow Food UK’s members and networks can meet for food related social activities .

Please note that all Slow Food UK members will receive a 15% discount in the shop.


We hope to welcome you all very soon to The Taste Space!
