Veg Box Newsletter 10/03/17

Good Afternoon Folks,

It’s cheese box week! We offer a choice of small (£20), standard (£37.50) and large (£55) cheese boxes as a monthly special, delivered on the second Friday of each month. Each box contains a range of cheese, including everyday cooking cheese such as Cheddar, blue cheese, goat and ewe cheeses. If you’d like to add one to your order, drop us an email or give us a ring.

As you can probably tell, we’re making the most of the purple sprouting broccoli season, and it features in your all the veg boxes this week. You’ll find a selection of recipe suggestions for it on our ever-growing  veggiepedia, where you’ll also find suggestions for celeriac which is in the large and extra large veg boxes.

Our March Munch of the Month competition is underway. Enter by sharing a meal you’ve made using your veg box veg on social media, with the tags #locavorevegbox and #locavoremm. The winner will receive a hamper containing delights from our shop.

In the veg boxes this week:

small: potatoes, onions, yellow carrots, beetroot, savoy cabbage, purple sprouting broccoli

    Should I have received beetroot with my standard bag? If you ran out, I can’t see what it has been replaced with as there are no large portions of anything else. Sprouting broccoli looks good though!

      Hi Craig,

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This is an error on my behalf, the standard veg boxes were not meant to contain beetroot at all! Here is the correct list: potatoes, onions, yellow carrots, savoy cabbage, purple sprouting broccoli, white mushrooms, blue ballet squash, 1 bag of Locavore grown produce (could be chard, salad mix or kale). I have now updated the newsletter to with the correct list.

      Sorry for any confusion!

      Katie
