Veg Boxes

Stepney Greens

Our greens polytunnel

After much anticipation – and a brief delay – we are restarting the much heralded Stepney Greens: a weekly supply of delicious greens, direct from Stepney City Farm. This year consisting of 100g of salad and an increase to 200g of cooking greens.

The twist this year is we’ll be harvesting on Thursdays – so you can pick up then or over the weekend – and we’ll be using bags rather
boxes (due to storage space issues), so we encourage/cajole you to do the right thing and return your bags for re-use.

A weekly bag between 1st June – 31st October costs just £65 – a mere £3 a week!

Again, due to fridge storage space issues, numbers are limited so book your place in the crisper drawer now!

Please note: over the season ahead we’ll be selling loads of different fruit and veg direct from the farm anyway if they’ve run out on a Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday come and find Shelagh in the garden and she’ll pick it for you.

For more info, or to register your interest, please contact shelagh@stepneycityfarm.org

Cafe Shop

We try to have our lovely greens in the farm shop for sale as much as possible – especially on the weekends – so do still come and see what we have available. May harvests include salad, chard, whole butter head lettuce, herbs (picked to order), spinach and rhubarb.
