About us

Hubbub started life as a pilot scheme in 2008, when Marisa Leaf decided being a human rights barrister wasn’t for her.

Like most people she knew, she worked really long hours so by the time she left work her only options were the supermarket or a takeaway.

She loved to eat well and had always been passionate about independent shops – but her lifestyle meant that, when it came to where she shopped and what she ate, she couldn’t make the choices she wanted to.

She realised that lots of people would shop locally more often if, when they couldn’t get to the shops in person, it was as convenient as buying from the supermarket. So she started Hubbub.

Today, Hubbub is a team of 13 food-loving shop-supporting superheroes including two former chefs, a food anthropologist, a development economist, an engineer, a wannabe pop-up restaurateur, two developers with massive brains, and our dashing delivery drivers.

We currently deliver 4,000 products from 32 independent shops across 200 postcodes of London and, thanks to high street heroes like you, we’re growing from strength to strength.
