Greetings, Vegbox enthusiasts! We are thrilled to share some exciting news about our recent promotional endeavours. If you’ve been strolling through Kentish Town lately, you may have noticed vibrant banners proudly displayed by our incredible members – Thomas,...
Mooli in many of the bags this week. It’s a type of white radish, widely grown in Asia, known as daikon in Japan or bailuobo in China. I like to use it in kimchi, but you can use it like a radish in all kinds of cooked and raw dishes. Lots of interesting recipes to...
Hello! There has been a lot of rain on some of the farms over the last two weeks, one of the wettest autumns in quite a while. At Bagthorpe Farm in Norfolk, they are at the point where they are so waterlogged, they are having to start restricting the amount of carrots...
What’s the problem? We have a problem here at Vegbox HQ. We don’t have enough income to plan reliably for the long term, whether on staffing, produce or supporting local initiatives, like Life After Hummus, into which we would like to invest any surplus profits....

I absolutely LOVE the Kentish Town Vegbox scheme. It's reasonably priced, you get a good range of seasonal veg,... including some things I'd never have tried if they hadn't appeared in my bag - and they also give you useful recipes. You collect your bags from a local drop-off point, so you don't have to pay for delivery, or make sure you're at home at any particular time. If you get the fruit option though, you do get a LOT of apples.read more
Had a great experience with Kentish Town Vegbox. The vegs are very high quality, seasonal, organic and local. I love... that they use pickup points as opposed to deliveries as it is consistent with my desire to reduce my carbon footprint. I have discovered vegs that I did not know before and, thanks to the weekly recipes, I have learnt to cook them and have significantly improved my cooking creativity and skills.read more
I was a member of the scheme when I lived near Mornington Crescent. I looked forward to the mega veg and fruit bag each... week. Such beautiful produce. Great value. Really convenient pick up near where I lived. Always brilliant responses and refunds on the extremely rare occasions there was a problem with the produce. I MISS IT!!! I now live in a rural place but it is weirdly harder to find good fruit and veg.read more
I have signed up to Vegbox for almost a year now. Out of all the somewhat similar options, this is by far the most... studetn friendly, considering the amount of fresh delicious vegetable you get.Moreover, I LOVE how the Vegbox team involves its subscribers into the development of the scheme and the attention towards our planet being put as one of the priority, with plastic bags rarely used. Plus, the weekly recipes are super tasty.As if this was not enough , they have a super responsive and very helpful team who answers any questions really fast by email.If you are not convinced yet, I will write it down: I highly recommend Vegbox!read more
We have subscribed 2 years ago and can see the impact of eating more and fresher vegetables on our health. We also have... a better conscience as we don't consume products wrapped in plastic and with a high carbon footprint. Finally, the service and communication are great.read more
Signed up to this vegbox scheme recently and have been really impressed. Veg is great quality and there's a good... selection. Picking up from the safe location is easy and means I don't have to wait around at home for a delivery at a certain time or have a box delivered overnight.read more
Great community organisation for ethically-sourced veg at price that compares v favourably with similar schemes. Go to... location & pick up bag each week, return empty bag for re-use the following week. The selection of veg includes staples but also more unfamiliar stuff that it wouldn't occur to me to buy in a shop, so has forced me to expand what I cook - which is good!read more
I think this is my first ever Google review… I am posting because I *adore* Vegbox. We get loads of inexpensive organic... veg (their fruit is lovely too, but organic fruit is never cheap). The produce is usually super fresh too, so extra delicious. I used to spend ages in the supermarket trying to work out how to minimise food miles and eat seasonal produce, but that all happens without effort with Vegbox. The bonus surprise is discovering a lovely community of people who also like these things!read more
I love this business. Local, seasonal produce, supporting local often start-up organisations. The fruit and veg boxes... are easy to collect, close to home. Being part of the organisation feels like contributing to a wider and hugely important mission of sustainability, I feel like I’m doing my bit to reduce the carbon footprint.read more
I signed my parents up for Christmas a few years ago and they have been so happy with it. Since moving home I have got... to reap the benefits of having lovely, local, organic veg every week.The thing that sticks out to me it that they invest in their community. It was started in Kentish town and still very much is located here. The excess veg or food waste is donated to local community groups and since it is a cooperative their profits don't go to a CEO or investors but back into the community.read more
I joined this scheme because it was local and good value , it also offered a discount for people with a low income. The... veggies are beautiful, they are fresh and there is a good vatiety through the weeks.The customer service is amazing. If I have any questions they are answered very quickly via email. There is a group newsletter and recpies. It is like you are buying veggies face to face from a friend and that you are really a valued customer.read more
Really enjoying the veg box. The recipe ideas are great each week. We are trying new veg due to the scheme! We really... like that all veg is sourced in the UK and the good environmental impact of this.read more
Great local veg box scheme. Quick and easy sign up and really fresh veggies (and an optional fruit supplement), all... locally sourced from neighboring farms in the UK. They are also very conscious of reducing/reusing packaging. Highly recommended.read more
An amazing community-run scheme which I am really grateful for. I have been part of it since about 4 years and it has... provided me with access to a wonderful range of organic, seasonal and locally sourced produce at an affordable price. It has also given me a sense of community in the kentish town area! I really recommend volunteering on a wednesday with the team, the chat is entertaining and stimulating and you can take home any surplus veg and get down to chutney making and pickling!read more
Love the surprise every week, along with fab recipes, means I don’t end up cooking the same old thing. Love feeling... much more connected to what I’m eating too - the little stories about the farms, or just knowing what’s actually in season, is so great. Thank you vegbox! ❤️read more
Such an amazing community scheme, I absolutely love being a member and receiving my organic veg every week. I... especially love that all of the veg is locally sourced and we know exactly where each piece came from, and every week there's something new to try. It also makes it so easy and fun to work out what to cook for the week, especially when we get the handy recipes in the newsletter! Love you Vegbox!read more
Love this local project that’s a cooperative and creates jobs as well as supporting small-scale organic farmers and... sourcing all fruit and veg from within England. Because it’s so fresh it keeps for longer and there’s much less packaging than from the supermarkets. I’ve been volunteering with them for the last three years and it’s been really rewarding and fun too.read more
I’ve been a member for 6 plus years, I love the that fact that i don’t have to think about what’s seasonal and am I... purchasing the best local organic produce, because all that work is done for me. Best bit it’s cheaper than all other organic Vegbox schemes and the supermarkets!read more
