This is commonly called eel liquor sauce or simply liquor although it is non-alcoholictraditionally made using the water kept from the preparation of the stewed eels. However, many shops no longer use stewed eel water in their parsley liquor.
The sauce traditionally has a green colour, from the parsley. Shops Before shops became common, trading took place from braziers or carts.

Goddard in Deptford High Street. Manze closed its Islington branch in but fortunately for all fans it still has three branches in the capital. Back in July A. Cooke closed its shop in Shepherds Bush but it now has an online delivery service.
