We hand pick all of our Fruit and Veg each (very early!) morning at St. James’ Wholesale Market. We only pick the very best quality fruit and veg for you, and it’s as fresh as it possibly can be; from trader to your table will typically be 24 hours. This stuff hasn’t been hanging around in supermarket warehouses for weeks, and it also means you’re supporting independent producers.
Where possible, we buy British grown fruit and veg to lower our environmental impact, but of course this isn’t always possible. You won’t find many Oranges grown in Britain for example!
This product is 100%, proudly, plastic free.
Because we pick the very best fruit and veg and post it the next day, sizes and ripeness may vary. If your fruit or veg needs to ripen a little, keep it in the brown paper bag at room temperature, and if you want to slow ripening, popping in the fridge usually works.
Don’t forget to wash your fruit and veg. It will usually have a shelf life of 5 days or more.
If you order your Fruit and Veg Mon-Thursday by 2pm, it will be dispatched same day. After 2pm will be dispatched the next day, and if ordered on Friday, Saturday or Sunday it will be dispatched on Monday (because Next Day Service isn’t available and we don’t want it hanging about).
