2) Select your nearest collection point

Pick from 30 collection points around Haringey, Hackney and Bethnal Green, hosted by local businesses and community venues.

Flexible - most collection points are self service with a conveniently long time (usually two to three days including evenings) to collect your bags.

Extras - top up with organic bread, eggs and extra seasonal fruit and veg at the Urban Farm Shop at our largest collection point, the Old Fire Station N16.


3) Enjoy your weekly fresh produce

Our farmers harvest your produce on Monday and Tuesday and we pack and deliver it on Wednesday and Thursday.

You'll receive a weekly email with recipes, plus our extensive recipe section gives you hundreds of seasonal veg-led dishes to inspire you.


We ask for a month's payment in advance, to guarantee a steady income for us and the small-scale farmers we work with. But, of course, you can take a break at any time.

If you have any questions about the scheme, check out our frequently asked questions or just get in touch! We're here to help. Email us (preferably) or call 020 7502 7588.
