Andreas Chelsea, 4 Cale Street, London, SW3 3QU

"Andreas is my wonderful local greengrocer, whose small shop in Chelsea Green is full of strange, familiar and always beautiful produce" - Nigella Lawson

My apprenticeship I guess was done at the tender age of 17 years old in My Uncle Adamou’s store in Chiswick in what was one of the first “Continental Grocers” where I learned about amazing flavours and the art of retail.
My Uncle would bellow “only the best” and that has stuck with me as did Rose Greys “best or nothing’ advice to me in my days supplying the River Café amongst other fabulous eateries.
Now 20 years since I opened in Chiswick my efforts are now concentrated on my beautiful Shop in Chelsea.
Fruit and vegetables are still the heartbeat of our store where we never stop searching and finding the finest produce for our customers and friends from our large network of growers, suppliers and importers.
Our selection of groceries, charcouterie and cheeses are superbly thought out to reflect both our desire to supply beautiful products and our customers to enjoy them.
If you are a serious lover of food or just like great things pay us a visit for exceptional and excellent service from my amazing team Sam, Nelson, Paul and our Italian Stallion Alberto.
"Soddisfa Tutte le tue esigenze" 
I guess 30 years on since my apprenticeship came to a close I have a Continental Grocers of my own…
(one of the best if the good people who shop here are to be believed)
inspired by the great people I have met along the way.
We would love to welcome you... so please pop by.
