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.

How does this differ from national veg box schemes, farmers’ markets or wholefood shops?
"Vegbox has changed my life! I am a vegetarian and so of course veggies mean so much to me. It feels so fulfilling to be buying my source for food from local organic sources and quietly boycotting the scary supermarkets and terrible climate conditions that have been caused by all this mess! Thanks for saving the world!"
"I LOVE my veg – and look forward to Wednesdays for midweek fresh veg. I especially love the flavours, seasonality and perfectly imperfect produce."
"We have really loved the veg box - my favourite part is the recipes and making something new. The cabbage salad recipe a couple of weeks back had the kids fighting over the bowl! I also enjoy the sense of community that comes with taking part."
"Thanks for organising the veg box, which is genuinely one of the most fun and satisfying parts of our routines these days!"
"Thanks for all the healthy food you've helped us to create, and for the healthier people you've helped us to be."
"Thanks for doing such a fantastic job with the veg box scheme. We're so please we've found a community-based group, that allows us to collect at a time that suits us, that has delicious local veg, AND which gives us a cracking newsletter each week! It's very much appreciated."
"It's been fun to so authentically move through the seasons in terms of ingredients and recipes."
"The tomatoes are superb! I collected my bag about an hour ago, sat at the bus stop and gobbled half of the punnet. I know they won’t last a minute when my boys get home from school. You guys are doing a brilliant job, thank you so much."
"The red apples we had about 3 weeks ago - I gave one to my friend and she was eating it on the tube - she turned to me and said that it was the best apple she had ever eaten! High praise as she is very keen on her fruit."
Hello! I thought I’d tell you about Ripple Farm this week. When we set up Vegbox back in 2012, Ripple Farm was the first producer we reached out to. Martin MacKay is the farmer behind the farm. I had been given his mobile number. I rang him up in early summer and...
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…
