There are many local shops in and on the edges of Bowes Park – you don’t have to buy at national chain supermarkets.
Myddleton Road has a growing number of local shops – food from many nations, services from plumbing to piano lessons and three independent supermarkets. Look at some of the shops on the Myddleton Road website.
There are also four local supermarkets/convenience stores selling a large range of products and fresh fruit and vegetables near Bounds Green Station, and two more between there and Myddleton Road. There is another at the north end of Whittington. Green Lanes has a wide variety of shops and services.
We must mention The Red Sea Supermarket (on the corner of Myddleton and Marlborough roads) in particular as they have contributed for many years to the community life. They have an exhibition showing the history of the street in their side window, they have copies of our newsletters and membership forms, they help us every day with the Community Garden and the Gym, they deliver to elderly customers and they are always willing to lend a hand in so many ways.
