Veg Box Newsletter w/c 20.05.19

Hello Folks,

This Thursday evening (8pm-10pm) we’ve got our fun Swap-O-Rama in the shop. Bring 5 items of unwanted clothing, shoes or accessories and we’ll give you a token to replace them with 5 beloved others. There will also be music and nibbles at this night of Slow Fashion so come and find your new favourites (that aren’t so new)!

We’re delivering sweet & savoury treat boxes alongside our veg boxes this week. You can find more information about our monthly specials here, as well as their delivery schedule. If you’d like to add one to your order, drop us an email at subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org.

Congratulations to Megan, who won April’s Munch of the Month competition with her veg box creation (pictured below) of beetroot hummus with toasted cumin seeds, Locavore tatties roasted in garlic, a tabbouleh made from grated cauliflower instead of bulgur wheat, plus the Locavore spring onions and parsley, and some pea, mint and feta fritters. A hamper is on the way to Megan this week! To find out how to enter the competition, click here.
