How It Works

Packing at the Vegbox yardWe buy a weekly selection of fresh seasonal vegetables from small organic farms located as close to London as possible.

They deliver to us very early every Wednesday and we pack your weekly vegetable bag that morning.

We have three sizes of vegetable bag and an option to add an item of fruit each week:

Small vegetable bag

£22 per calendar month (£5.50 per week)

This bag contains 4-5 varieties of seasonal UK produce, or enough for one person. Small bags regularly include carrots, onions and potatoes, greens, and a selection of seasonal vegetables.

Standard vegetable bag

£29 per calendar month (£7.25 per week)

This bag contains 5 varieties of seasonal UK produce, or enough for one or two people. Standard bags regularly include carrots, onions and potatoes, greens, and a selection of seasonal vegetables.

Family vegetable bag

£46 per calendar month (£11.50 per week)

This bag contains 6 varieties of seasonal UK produce, or enough for three or four people. Family bags regularly include carrots, onions and potatoes, greens, and a selection of seasonal vegetables.

Fruit supplement

£10 per calendar month (£2.50 per week)

You can add one type of seasonal UK fruit each week to any of the above bags.

If you have a period where you find you’re not getting through all your veg, or you are cooking at home more than usual, you can switch your vegetable bag up and down to a smaller or bigger size. Just let us know.

We pack our veg into recycled carrier bags, re-using existing bags in circulation for minimum environmental impact.

Payments

Box scheme members usually pay through a weekly direct debit. The payment goes out every Monday. We have other payment options as well though.

Holiday weeks

If you don’t need a bag because you are on holiday, we refund you for the weeks you take off. Please let us know whenever you go away – by the weekend of the week before if possible – so we don’t waste produce. Or, if you wish, you may arrange for a friend or neighbour to collect your bags while you’re away. If you do this, you don’t need to let us know.
