History of the lockdown below :)


Wednesday 6th May

MARKET UPDATE

As promised, an update!

As of Thursday May 21st we will be resuming Brighton Square Market in Rathgar, then Noamh Olaf in Sandyford a day later. Both will be outside and we'll be set up quite differently than normal to promote social distancing etc. We're hoping Stonybatter and Aughrim will follow on shortly after.

During this transition period back to some sort of normality we will be continuing our veg box deliveries although routes and days may need adjusted slightly. If you are able to come to a market please do as it will take a lot of stress of our packing and delivery team and hopefully yourself!

More news to follow as we reorganise, yet again!

Thanks, as always for your patience  :)






Sunday 3rd May

There doesn't seem to be much change so far but it looks like we might be able to try to get back to at least some of our markets by the end of the month, I'll keep you updated on that.

In the meantime we're trying a new supplier to attempt to improve the supply line of fruit which has been a little tricky to get recently. We're doing our best for you and thanks for the continuing support!

Wednesday 29th April

 

As I'm sure quite a few of you have noticed some of the imported stock hasn't been quite what we're used too. :(

So, I've been in touch with a co op close to the Spanish border in France to hopefully reduce the time between harvesting and eating. Their first delivery is due on Monday so fingers crossed. More to follow!!


If you haven't ordered with us before please make sure you email us first to ensure we have space, we're very full up with orders at the moment and refunds take a lot of valuable time to process, thanks!

Please email me or send a text if you've a query as I'm missing a lot of phone calls at the moment due to either being out delivering or not hearing my phone.

Please note that although we try our very best to fill your exact orders some produce may be unavailable and we might have to put something similarish or just give you a refund if we're completely stumped for a replacement.


Thurs 2nd April

We're almost up to speed again. A delivery arriving a day late this week has been the only problem but we appear to have got round it. Thanks as always for your patience! 

Unfortunately we will have to increase our packing and delivery charge by a euro (including vat!!) to attempt to cover some of the added labour costs of extreme veg box packing and delivering. Its very time consuming as you'd imagine. I should be charging a lot more.

Recent price rises. The price of produce has started to climb a bit. I hope it's not a sign of things to come. I'll keep doing my best to find the best value where I can without compromising quality.

We're still not taking on any new customers, but we're starting to add a few that were on the waiting list. Please email me first if you haven't ordered before to see if we have a space to fit you in, thank

  Refunds (and phonecalls!!!) are taking up quite a lot of time , please be respectful, we're up to our eyes here and every minute counts. Communicate by email or text if need be, they're all read and noted if not answered

Some produce might be unavailable, we'll do our best to swap it for something someway comparible of equal value. I'll also be compiling a refund book to manage refunds digitally for your safety.

Wednesdays pallet delivery to us from Holland will be arriving a day late. Friday, Rathgar and surrounds will most likely be a Saturday delivery this week




Wednesday 25th March

PLEASE NOTE; WE ARE NOT TAKING ON ANY MORE NEW CUSTOMERS AT THE MOMENT WE ARE FULL TO CAPACITY WITH ORDERS AND CANNOT PHYSICALLY PACK OR DELIVER ANY MORE AT THIS TIME. 

EXISTING CUSTOMERS PLEASE CONTINUE TO ORDER, STOCKS ARE STILL GOOD.

WE ARE REORGANISING DAILY TO IMPROVE OUTPUT SO WATCH THIS SPACE!

ANYONE THAT PUTS AN ORDER IN THAT IS NOT ALREADY ON OUR SYSTEM WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL AND PUT ON A WAITING LIST. THIS SHOULD ONLY BE A TEMPORARY MEASURE, SORRY!

After the messiest week ever I've been busy reorganising things to fit as many of you in as possible. As of this week our new routes are

Saturday..... Stonybatter drop off point is as close to Penders Yard as I can get parked. Collection time is 10 am -11am. Please follow all rules in place and keep everyone safe.

We'll also be doing home deliveries around the Stonybatter area to our customers that are self isolating. Deadline for orders is Thursday evening. 

We don't have the capacity to deliver to any more area's on that side of town at the moment. Sorry!

As usual, please let me know if we've missed anything out when packing or if any produce isn't up to standard. Our workload has trebled overnight and mistakes can be made. Email me if possible.






Wednesday 18th March

As from next week we'll be adding Tuesday deliveries to deal with the demand for good organic food. Feel free to order over the weekend, we'll get to you as soon as we can.


Tuesday 17th March

Veg Box deliveries will be spaced out between Thursday and Saturday for the meantime to cope with a much larger demand than usual. 

We will have two Saturday drop off points, Manor St, Stonybatter as close to Penders Yard as I can get parked(10 am-11am) and also The Pavillion, Aughrim (10am-11am) Please leave a note on your order if you can pick up at either of these points.

For those self isolating we will drop to your front door where we will ring your doorbell or knock once then scarper!

If everyone can order and pay on our website it would be really appreciated until this passes.

Some produce may not be available but we will have fresh deliveries coming in regularly so just keep checking for availability, I'll update the website daily as things change.

Thanks for your cooperation in this, as usual we'll be doing our very best to keep you fed.


(Sunday 15th March)

 With the imminent 'lockdown' seemingly on its way and the obvious need to be socially responsible and not encourage public gatherings at this time, we have temporarily pulled out of all our markets until this crisis has passed. Veg box deliveries will continue as normal and new routes and delivery days and drop off points will be added to accomodate all our market customers.

More to follow.....






Our salad leaf and rocket will be coming from Udo over at Ballyroan farm while we repair our tunnels after the winter. It's been a wet and windy winter!

On a brighter note, a neighbour gifted us a lovely big tunnel that we're now in the process of dismantling and getting it up and running down here. Thanks Dominic!

Veg Box deliveries are all packed on Wednesday and delivered on Thursday. Please have your orders in by 3.30 on Wednesday at the very latest, thanks!


Our Weekly Markets are cancelled until further notice. We'll resume as soon as possible.


Brighton Square,Rathgar, (Thursday )

Penders Yard Farmers Market in Stonybatter D7 (Sat)

I'll be using Biobag and/or a shinier compostable bag for my leaf packing as of this week (11/3/19), I'm still exploring other options as well but that's the end of the plastic :)  Don't forget to return your empty boxes or crates. They get reused too!

Feedback on the bags welcome!!
