Village food shop on awards shortlist

Guzzl shop front in Brixton village

Guzzl, the Brixton Village food shop, owned and run by long-time Brixton resident Andrew Murray-Watson, has been shortlisted in the Best Deli and Best Newcomer categories in the 2019 Farm Shop & Deli Awards – to be held in Birmingham on 8 April.

Guzzl deli in Brixton Village was chosen from hundreds of entries after members of the judging panel made “secret shopper” visits to the store to check out its wide range of products from local suppliers.

Andrew Murray-Watson (left) said: “Since we opened the doors of the shop in November 2017, we have done our best to champion local producers and as a Brixton resident I am thrilled that this local independent business has been recognised at a national level.”

This year there are 50 businesses shortlisted as category finalists, which include nine that are also potential ‘Newcomer of the Year’ winners.

Regional winners will be selected from the category finalists and also announced live at the awards ceremony.

Guzzl is based at Unit 9 Brixton Village
