Important notices for the food club:

The shop will be opening at Thursday, 8th February 2024. It will then close at Wednesday, 14th February 2023 at 8PM and the next market day will be on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, 24th January 2024. Note that we are now in Glen Cairn Heights!

To note: fresh figs are now in stock!  We also have paneer again! 🧀 In addition, Rocklands have eggs! 🥚🥚🥚 Eikelaan are also doing a 1/2kg of lamb – this is grass fed.

I also wanted to thank you again for your support and understanding with running a food club. With factory closures, finding some products out of stock only on delivery and driving as far as Rondebosch for collection, I must say, I asked myself this month if all the effort was worth it (we take no more than 10% for our time, electricity and airtime, plus a logistics fee where we have to drive to pick up goods). But then, I saw this article on the Daily Maverick, which explained that SA’s use of pesticides is regulated by a 1947 law and that we are the largest consumer of more than 3,000 pesticides in Africa, some of which are banned overseas due to their health risks! That’s why our fruit and veg is either organic or mostly chemical free. I also did a price check, and we are much (around 30%) cheaper than any stores stocking the same produce (since we don’t rental costs and other overheads and charge less of a margin). Supermarkets that do offer free-range options are also more costly. PLUS, more than 80% of your invoice goes straight to the farmer, cutting out the middleman. And that’s not to mention the quality!

Thanks again to all, and see you for collection!
