  • Stoke Newington Farmers’ Market

    Email:

    Growing Communities is a small social enterprise in Hackney, running an organic fruit and vegetable box scheme, a certified farmers’ market every Saturday in Stoke Newington where all the producers sell organic, biodynamic or wild produce and a Neighbourhood Food Growing Project on three sites in Hackney. Local schools, residents and groups with special needs can visit their sites to learn more about organic food growing or to become a regular volunteer. Growing Communities is working to improve the food we eat, the community we live in and the environment through these projects. Visit the website for more details of how to get involved or to join the box scheme. Just up the road from Dalston and Shoreditch you’ll find the UK’s only 100% organic farmers’ market. All our farmers are either organic or bio-dynamic. What’s more, we ask the stallholders making processed foods to source most of their ingredients from those farmers. So not only do you get delicious food but you’re also supporting small, sustainable farms almost all from within 60 miles of London.

    Growing Communities is a social enterprise in Hackney that aims to create community-led alternatives to the current damaging food system. We run an organic fruit and vegetable box scheme, a certified farmers’ market every Saturday in Stoke Newington, where all the producers sell organic, biodynamic or wild produce, and three urban market gardens in Hackney parks where we grow organic, zero-food-miles salad for the box scheme and local restaurants and cafés. Local schools, residents and groups with special needs can visit the growing sites to  learn more about organic food growing or to become a regular volunteer. Growing Communities is working to improve what we eat, how we eat and how it’s farmed. Visit the website for more details of how to get involved or to join the box scheme.
