Fresh Africa, 59-61 London Road

  • 59-61 London Road, CR0 2RF

Grocery shop and greengrocer on London Road.

See the Past and Present of Croydon's London Road articles on 59 London Road and 61 London Road for history up to late 2014, at which point number 59 was the Croydon Food Centre photo and number 61 was in the process of becoming Kaakyire African Market photo.

Kaakyire opened in December 2014 but closed down again some time between March and October 2017. It sold fresh vegetables such as red onions, yams, pea aubergines, and various African greens; groceries such as palm oil and garri; and ready-cooked meats such as suya (spiced grilled meat on skewers) and turkey tails. By October 2017 number 61 was vacant and stripped out photo.

The Croydon Food Centre continued to trade at number 59 until at least March 2017, but some time between then and June 2018 numbers 59 and 61 were amalgamated into Fresh Africa, stocking groceries in number 59 and fresh fish in number 61. By August 2018 the fish had gone and number 61 was advertised to let photo.

Existence last checked in August 2018.
