Your guide to the Veg Box Shop!

So you’d like to make an order for some additional groceries to be delivered alongside your veg box via the veg box shop? Here’s some things you should know beforehand:

  • The veg box shop is simply for adding additional grocery items to your veg box delivery for the current week. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have an online portal for editing your veg box subscriptions, so any subscription related enquiries please email subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org
  • Only customers who receive a veg box delivery are able to make an order on the veg box shop. This means if you collect your veg box from our Victoria Road shop or another retailer you are unable to make a veg box shop order. Fortunately, all of the items we sell in the veg box shop are also available to buy in our Victoria Road shop when you come in to collect your box.
  • Do you want to add milk or eggs alongside your delivery? These items are not available on the veg box shop and can only be added as a subscription. Email subscribers@glasgowlocavore.org if you’d like to add these to your subscription.
  • Orders can only be made to be delivered alongside the current week’s veg box deliveries. If you receive a veg box on a fortnightly or monthly schedule and place an order on a week you’re not due to receive a veg box, this order will not be fulfilled.
  • The veg box shop opens on a Saturday evening. You will receive an email from us when the shop goes live. You then have until the following deadlines to place an order:
    • 11pm, Monday for customers with a Wednesday veg box delivery
    • 11pm, Tuesday for customers with a Thursday veg box delivery
    • 11pm, Wednesday for customers with a Friday veg box delivery
    • 11pm, Thursday for customers with a Saturday veg box delivery
  • These deadlines are in place to allow us prepare items, process and pack orders in time to go out with your regular veg box delivery. It is very important that you select the correct delivery day when placing your order. If you select a delivery day that is different from the day you are due to receive your veg box, your order may not be able to to be fulfilled. More on how to select your delivery day below.
