Best Veg Boxes by Paloma Lacy

If getting your five a day is proving difficult, a fruit and veg box delivered straight to your door might well be the answer.

Milk & More offers eco-conscious shopping, with no pointless plastic. As well as staple favourites, there are also seasonal boxes, so you can enjoy the best of what’s available throughout the year.

Wake up to a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables and plan healthy meals for the week ahead.
Your fruit and veg is carefully selected, packaged in a recyclable box and hand delivered to your door.

The small organic box includes standard potatoes (1.5kg), courgettes (500g), cherry tomatoes (225g), six seasonal apples, bananas (800g) and clementines (600g).

RRP: £13.

Eversfield Organic sells a small veg box perfect for two people weekly, with at least seven varieties per box. A tasty selection of organic vegetables, plucked fresh from pesticide-free soils and delivered to your door as often as you please. Varieties included may differ from those listed depending on harvests and availability.

Currently, that box is little more than a tenner and includes spuds, red onions, carrots, broccoli, dried garlic, curly kale, chestnut mushrooms and parsnips. And if this selection is not to your liking, build your own box.

Their bright yellow vans are so commonplace in London now, probably because the fourth box is free.

Able & Cole puts veg centre stage with its colourful array of organic seasonal delights in the seasonal veg box. Veg lovers, the very small veggie box is calling to you. And for those who make the most of their veg, you’ll get plenty of hearty and familiar things to make big dishes and delicious sides.

This week’s selection includes: baby spinach, broccoli, Jerusalem artichokes, potatoes, red peppers, mushrooms and onions.

RRP: £13.25
