"Since receiving my weekly veg bag I have become excited about cooking again. It’s totally removed the ‘mundane’ from my weekly shop and quite honestly changed my relationship with food. I love the variation; it gets me using my imagination"
- Julia, Roots Customer

You can collect your bag from our packing shed at Roots or we can deliver to Porthtowan, Mount Hawke, Portreath and Illogan (or on the route between us and these villages) for an added £2.
If you're away you can give your veg to a friend or we can donate them to a foodbank. Like other subscriptions, we ask that you pay every week, even if you go away (think of things like broadband or netflix where you pay even if you're not using them).
During the winter months we top up our bags with vegetables carefully selected from organic farms as close to Cornwall as possible.
We have our bags packed and ready every Wednesday from 3pm
We use ZERO single-use packaging! No paper bags, no cardboard, no plastic, no elastic bands...nothing! Each customer has two upcycled fabric bags and a set of upcycled ice cream tubs which you return on rotation; each week an empty bag is replaced by a brimming one!
Our bags are packed with as much seasonal produce as possible from our garden and contents change each week according to what is in season.
By joining our CSA veg bag scheme, you become a member and will receive your share of the harvest each week - this means you share in our gluts and support us in trickier times
