A very happy 2020 Organic Christmas and a merry New Year from Sonia, Linda, Matt, James and Clemency.

We’re writing to let everyone know about our veg and fruit delivery dates over the coming Christmas period. While everything is still so uncertain, we do hope your holiday is as peaceful and relaxing — and safe — as possible.

Are you a Stroud market customer? Pre-order all your vegetable and fruit needs and collect it — boxed and ready — from our market stall on either Saturday 19 December or Wednesday 23 December. Click here to find out more!

No deliveries between Christmas and New Year

As usual, we will not deliver any veg boxes between Christmas and New Year. So unless you have put your order on hold, every customer (* except monthly) will receive a final veg box delivery of the year on either Tuesday 22nd December OR Wednesday 23rd December to cover the Christmas period, as follows:

Weekly customers

  • If you normally get your box on a Tuesday, we will deliver on: TUESDAY 22nd DECEMBER
  • If you normally get your box on a Wednesday, we will deliver on: WEDNESDAY 23rd DECEMBER

Fortnightly customers

Fortnightly customers will receive a delivery—even if it is not your usual week—as we will not make any deliveries between Christmas and New Year. Fortnightly customers will receive approximately half the quantities listed in the table below. Please note: Fortnightly boxes will not include garlic and lemon, so if you would like these please order as ‘extras’. (See ‘Ordering extras’ below.)

* Monthly customers

Important: If you have a monthly box you will not receive a delivery before Christmas unless you order it as extra. We will deliver your next monthly box on the first Tuesday/Wednesday of the New Year. Please contact us if this is a problem.

Fruit bag orders

Our regular organic fruit bags will be doubled (single bag for fortnightly customers) for the Christmas period and delivered in a separate box. This year, our organic fruit bags will contain:

Small: Bananas, Oranges, Dates, Pears, Apples, Clementines

Large: Lemons, Nuts, Apples, Bananas, Dates, Clementines, Oranges, Pineapple, Kiwi fruit, Pears
