Avoid the queues at supermarkets and shop local at Farmford & Co’s food stalls in the Pig and Whistle car park.
You can place your order online and click and collect. This week they will be open Monday to Thursday from 9am to dusk, with the exception of Christmas Eve when they will close around 2pm. Stocks will include fresh eggs and milk alongside their typical selection of fresh groceries. They also sell flowers and festive food.
“Farmford & Co was established in October of this year,” says co-founder Jake Wiltshire. ” We initially set Farmford up to provide a home delivery service of our premium fruit and vegetables and, whilst we still do home deliveries throughout London, when the second lockdown was announced we saw an opportunity in East Sheen to create our new and popular market stall at the Pig and Whistle Pub car park (86 Sheen Lane, SW14 8LP).”
“We have an extensive range of fruit and veg as we are a branch off from a wholesale company within New Covent Garden Market. We source our produce globally, which is why we can have fruit and veg full of taste all year long. Alongside this, we are able to keep all our goods as fresh as possible as anything we don’t sell each weekend gets put back into the wholesale side of the business and we bring brand new, fresh produce each week for you all to enjoy!”
Along with fruit and veg Farmford also sells dairy products, seasonal food (festive faves) and ad hoc items such as truffles and black garlic. They have also developed a flower collection which has been getting rave reviews.
“We’ve had lots of kind compliments about how fresh our produce is,” adds Jake.
Usual opening times are Friday and Saturday every week (with the possible addition of Thursdays, too, in the new year!)
