Thank you GC members!

Bag contents for the week beginning 25 May. , click here, or scroll down the page.

Sorry, the spring greens in some bags deteriorated very quickly last week. Please contact us if you have a problem with your veg.

Danny, who runs our wholesale operation, the Better Food Shed, has described this as "the worst week ever for veg"! The hungry gap is at its peak and the selection of produce from abroad is severely limited. But it's good to see the start of an increase in the summer produce available, and the choice will grow wider and juicier over the next few weeks.

In these unpredictable times, bag contents are liable to change at short notice. Thanks for bearing with us.

Check our Coronovirus update page for latest news before collecting your veg.
