Produce sold through the co-op comes directly from local suppliers such as farmers, retailers and wholesalers, who select fresh fruit and vegetables according to seasonality, availability and value.

There are four bags to choose from –

Fruit – Vegetables – Salad

All at a cost of £3 per bag

Or Bread at £4.50 per bag



Customers order and pay in advance, either by contacting Kirsty personally at kirsty_jones0783@yahoo.com or asking her to add you to the Food Co-op Facebook group.

You can order as many or as few bags as you need, and as it’s ordered weekly, so there’s no problem skipping a week. But customers must pay for their bags at the time of ordering.

Food bags can then be collected on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning from the Pavilion, once you have been contacted to say they are ready. When you can if you wish, also order and pay for the following weeks bags.
