Calling all producers/cooks/artists/ideas makers!

I am currently volunteering at the Red Route Cafe on Lower Clapton Road: which is a not-for-profit, social enterprise cafe set up to help young people gain skills and qualifications.

Last week, I came up with the idea to help them make a bit more money which would be to have a section of the cafe set up as a shop, selling local produce. This can be from jam right through to greetings cards.

If you are somebody who doesn’t have a shop, but has a few bits you’d like to see in a shop, then this is your chance to get involved.

Send me a message below and I’ll get back to you.


  1. Hi Frances, how are you?

    I love baking bread and cakes, I also make my own Chipotle sauce. I dream of having my own cafe space to sell cakes etc, so would love to bring samples round for you to try, to see if you are interested in selling any of them in the cafe.


  2. Hi Jim,

    Thanks for the reply, sounds great. I’ll need to make a list and take that to the managers so that they can see exactly what they want, etc and then come back to you. I hope that’s ok.


  3. Hi Frances, just to clarify is this a call for donated items with all proceeds to the cuase or are you thinking of some share of proceeds with the suppliers?

    many thanks

  4. Hi Ian,

    There will definitely be a share, we’re not sure yet but we wouldn’t expect donations for nothing!


  5. thanks Fran, definitely up for helping out on the food front. Let me know when you are ready to have a chat.

    have a lovely day

  6. Hi Frances

    I sell Macadamia Nut Oil and would love a space to stock it!

    Happy to send more information and details.

    Thanks very much
