A new vegan supermarket has opened its doors in east London.
Called the Plant-Based Supermarket, the outlet sells a range of vegan food products, including ice-cream, frozen pizza, and grab-and-go sandwiches and wraps.
In addition, the shop offers coffee which can be enjoyed in-store, in the outdoor or indoor seating areas.
The retailer, based in Homerton, has been keeping customers updated on its progress via Instagram.
The big opening date was revealed last week, with a post saying: "And our sign is up...pop in we're open til 8."
The announcement was met with excitement, with one user saying: "Wow this is so exiting. Just been to Brooklyn to see all amazing foods there, and felt jealous of what they have in the way of plant-based HEALTHY food rather than vegan junk. I'm coming today to shop."
