A very happy 2023 Organic Christmas and a merry New Year (in advance!) from Sonia, Linda, Pete, Ian and Annie.

We’re writing to let you know about our veg and fruit delivery dates over the coming Christmas period. We hope it is as peaceful and relaxing and safe as it can be for you all.

Are you a Stroud market customer? Pre-order all your Christmas organic fruit and veg needs and collect them — boxed and ready — from our market stall on Saturday 23rd December.

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 – see below) will receive a final special veg box delivery of the year, to cover the entire Christmas period, as follows:

Weekly customers:

  • If you normally get your box on a Tuesday, we will deliver on: WEDNESDAY 20th DECEMBER
  • If you normally get your box on a Wednesday, we will deliver on: THURSDAY 21st 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 Wednesday/Thursday of the New Year (Note that deliveries will be a day later than normal on our first week back). Please contact us if this is a problem, or if you are a fortnightly customer and not sure if you are due a delivery the first week back.

Order Deadline

Once again, I need any extras or any other changes to your regular order no later than 6am on Monday 18th December. Please get in touch before then. Thank you in advance for your cooperation!

Prices are subject to change. Any extras will be delivered with your Christmas boxes. Feel free to ask about any extras not on the list – we’ll try our very best to source them.

Restarting deliveries in 2024

Finally, we will restart your deliveries on either Wednesday 3rd January or Thursday 4th January 2024–a day later than normal–before we drop back to the normal Tuesday and Wednesday delivery days. If you are a fortnightly customer, please note this is an ‘odd’ week.

If you have ANY queries or concerns about the above, please call me on 01793 861070 or send a message using our web form.

Thank you so much for your support over the last year. Have a wonderful Christmas!
