Why they’re good: If you live between Belsize Park, Kentish Town and Archway then you can pick up your bag organic veg, produced predominantly by London farmers, from 10 different pick-up point rather than the supermarket. Bags typically contain carrots, onions, potatoes and greens plus seasonal offerings – the basics of a weekly shop.

Why else: A community-led scheme, run as a consumer co-operative (owned by the customers and service- rather than profit-orientated), the Kentish Town Veg Box scheme provides a regular outlet and fair price for small-scale organic farmers as well as affordable organic veg for its customers.
