Veg Boxes

We happily deliver local organic veg boxes to over 700 households per week across central Scotland with produce grown at our growing sites and other wonderful organic farms.

Our boxes come in 4 sizes – Small, Standard, Large and Extra Large. The vegetables in our boxes are all UK grown! We grow some of it ourselves at our growing sites around Glasgow. The selection is seasonal, and varies week to week. You’ll always get the basics though. You’ll receive a newsletter each week listing the contents, and you can use our Veggiepedia for recipe ideas.

When do we deliver?

Our delivery days are as follows:

  • Wednesday : Glasgow – South of the Clyde / Ayrshire / Collect – at the shop
  • Thursday : Edinburgh / Stirling
  • Friday : Glasgow – North of the Clyde / Collect – at the shop

You can leave alternative delivery instructions on the online form, in case you’re not going to be in, but we unfortunately can’t guarantee a delivery time. You can let us know of a safe spot out of sight and out of the weather that we can leave your delivery or if you live in a tenement you can provide us with a key to the close so we can leave your delivery outside your flat door.

We’re interested in setting up more collection points in Glasgow and beyond, so if there’s a group of you who’d like to get veg boxes together please get in touch!

What do you get in a veg box?

Our boxes nearly always include the soup basics – potatoes, carrots and onions. The rest of the produce varies week to week, changing with the seasons. We source lots of leafy greens and other produce through our growers through the summer months and in the winter as far as we can.

You can add on extras to make life a little easier. We offer fruit and extra veggies, Mossgiel Milk in glass bottles, sourdough bread and eggs, all to make up your weekly shop. We also specially select cheese, meat, vegan and grain boxes monthly – making organic delights more accessible to you!

Where is the produce from?

We source all of our produce as locally as possible and grow most of it ourselves during peek season. The rest we largely source from other organic Scottish growers and never from outside the UK.

Is all the produce organic?

Yes. We only buy from organic producers and our own land is in the process of being certified organic by the Soil Association.

Are the boxes good value for money? 

Our customers think so. In a survey 92% gave us at least 4 out of 5 for value! Most of our competitors prices start at £12 while our small bag is just £5.

How are payments taken? 

Our veg box deliveries are paid by monthly direct debit – we’ll send you an itemised invoice after the last delivery of each month.

Is there a minimum order?

Yes, we have a minimum order of £8, + £2 delivery charge per weekly delivery. There’s no minimum and no delivery charge for collection customers.

Is there a delivery charge? 

Delivery is a flat rate of £2 per week.

Do I need to be home for deliveries? 

No. Let us know of a safe place that our driver can leave your delivery. If you live in a tenement, you could give us a key to the close so your order can be left outside your flat door.

Customer Quotes

“I’ve had a number of veg boxes/bags over the years and think the Locavore one compares very favourably. The quality is excellent and it is good value and I particularly like it that it is a local social enterprise. I’m very pleased with it and always recommend it to friends. Keep up the good work!”

“We love picking up our veg bags as they are great value for money & make us try different recipes!”
