Brixton Cornercopia

About Brixton Cornercopia

We sell useful, beautiful and curious things for the home from a tiny shop in the vibrant heart of Brixton Village market. Things that are designed to last, functional and beautiful as well as a few things are cleverly upcycled or one-off curious vintage finds. We have plenty of cookware, from enamel pie tins and colourful ptichers to wooden utensils and cast iron tea pots. There are things for measuring, things for preserving, things for the mycologist, mixologist and forager. Brushes for cooking and cleaning, iron hooks and wooden pegs for hanging things and curious foxy doorknobs. We are especially fond of hand-crafted objects and things made by traditional methods. We are also building up a range of beautiful things designed by local people. Like our local larder, the homeware shop is seasonal with things like garden tools, planters & seeds in the spring, picnic, BBQ and outside gear for the summer and in the winter we wooly draft excluders, chestnut roasters and lambswool throws. Cornercopia's local larder is just next to the Homeware store and on the shelves of our small shop you will find jars of jam made with fruit collected from local gardens and allotments, honey made by South London bees, next to pots of mango and habenero relish and bottles of Brixton Pound sauce made using ingredients sourced in Brixton market. We also sell some fantastic beers form local micro-breweries and some of the best English spirits and fruit liqueurs. We have chosen some of the best local products to make some very special hampers full of delicious local products not available elsewhere. These are available on Street-hub to be delivered to your door, or you can come directly to the shop and put together a bespoke hamper.

From the founder

We started Cornercopia 5 years ago as part of an empty shops project in Brixton Village. Our idea was to create a corner shop with a difference - where the things on the shelves were made by local people, using ingredients locally grown or sourced and everything had a story to tell about it's provenance. The Homeware store was established in December 2013 and for this we source useful and beautiful things from near and far. Some things are made locally, many by traditional methods.
