Veg Box Newsletter w/c 21.5.18

Hello Folks,

Our new shop officially opened it’s doors on Friday! Check out our review of the past year, and our future plans in this report.

As you may already be aware now, we’re at the end of the UK grown onions until the new season, so we’re replacing them with leeks for now in the standard and above veg boxes. Unfortunately they work out a little too expensive per kilo to include in the small veg boxes. On a similar note, we’ve decided to omit carrots from the veg box until the new season as we’re not happy with the quality of them. Likewise, this will be the last week of potatoes for a short while.

If you’re looking for more information on your veg or recipe inspiration, check out our veggiepedia, and join your fellow subscribers over in the Facebook group.
