Welcome to Kentish Town’s
local and affordable veg box scheme
WHO WE ARE
with a weekly selection of fresh seasonal produce, sourced as locally as possible.
Vegbox was founded in 2012 by members of Transition Kentish Town, with support from Growing Communities in Hackney.
VEGBOX currently connects over 200 members in the Kentish Town, Camden Town and Tufnell Park, Belsize Park and King’s Cross areas with growers and producers from farms as near to London as possible. Bags are delivered once a week to a range of 12 collection points, bringing organic produce at affordable prices to our local community.
A consumer co-operative
Our customers are our members. Members attend the AGM and have a say in how the box scheme is run and what we do with any surplus we make in the future.
Local and seasonal
Not for profit
We only order what we need each week and produce any left over after packing is given to local partners – currently Streets Kitchen and the Thanet youth club.
How does this differ from national veg box schemes, farmers’ markets or wholefood shops?
The scheme is run by and for our local community in and around Kentish Town.
You can expect a great mix of fruits and vegetables that are all very usable. Great service!
Thank you for the great service and wonderful idea of delivering organic fruits and vegetables.

We have an exciting new collection point in Camden Market: it’s a re-purposed giant phone box! We are thrilled to have a collection point in this bustling and iconic north London location…
We work part time on Vegbox, so we may not pick up the phone when you ring.
But leave us a message and we'll get back to you as soon as we can!
