You can now place orders for Christmas Week! See below for further details.

Weekly orders for delivery before Christmas Week (w/c Monday 21 December) can be placed in the usual way from 10.30 am every Sunday – orders close at 9:30 am on Monday (or sooner if all delivery slots filled) for delivery on Thursday/Friday. A ‘count-down’ clock shows at the top of the screen when we’re open for orders.

(We are only open to existing registered customers – sorry!)

Delivering fresh, local and ethically sourced food direct to homes across Somerset since 2002.

Somerset Local Food

Important notice

Unfortunately we cannot accept new customers for our delivery service at this time as we are committed to supporting our existing customers, elders and those most vulnerable in our communities who remain housebound and really need our food delivery service.

Christmas Orders and Delivery

We are now open for Christmas orders.  Existing customers can place orders for delivery during Christmas week from Tuesday November 24th until 9am on Thursday December 17th (unlike weekly deliveries, you will be able to place an order at any time between these dates).  We will deliver your Christmas orders on 22nd, 23rd and 24th December.

Please note the following:

Please enter separate Christmas and ‘Weekly’ orders you need to submit a separate order for any produce to be delivered during Christmas week (i.e. don’t combine it with your ‘normal’ weekly order).  Choose the ‘Christmas orders – cut off 17th December’ delivery cycle on the checkout page

Meat & poultry – please order your Christmas poultry and large meat joints ASAP, so that our butchers have notice of what they need to prepare.

Everything else – you can place a further order (or orders) for everything else you want delivered during Christmas Week nearer the time (some fruit and veg availability changes frequently, so produce ordered now may be unavailable by Xmas).   Multiple orders for Christmas week will be delivered together, and only one delivery charge will be made.

Other Deliveries – It will be a squeeze in the warehouse with the additional volume of orders and the social distancing requirements. We’re asking for your help in “smoothing the hump” by ordering non-perishable produce, cleaning and household items for delivery before Xmas Week.

Also, to save space in the warehouse and the vans, we won’t be delivering large sacks of potatoes, boxes of carrots or cases of water during Christmas Week. If you need any of these, they must be ordered for delivery earlier in the month.

Grow for Good

Somerset Local Food is a Community Benefit Society owned and financed by the local community. We are committed to promoting the abundance of beautiful local food produced and made by Somerset’s local producers.

We believe that as a community owned social enterprise, together with our community shareholders, we can grow a local food movement that makes good food accessible to everyone in Somerset, impacting on people’s health and wellbeing, maintaining the natural landscape and protecting the local environment to mitigate the effects of climate change.

Becoming a shareholder in Somerset Local Food means you also become a co-owner of the community owned benefit society and have a say in the future direction of the enterprise, including helping us to protect the natural environment for future generations as we create and strengthen local food systems that revitalise our local communities.

We currently have an open membership share offer to raise funds for the installation of a mezzanine level in our warehouse.  This will give us a mess-room for the staff to have their breaks and will free up space at ground floor level to make working easier and enable us to hold more product lines.  Further details can be found here.

We also welcome smaller donations  which can be added to your order – here’s a link

Help us get to our funding target

As a Community Benefit Society, it is important we have a broad base of customers, producers and staff that own shares and participate in the running of the business.

This latest share offer has so far raised £25,700 but we have more to do to reach our target of £50,000.  Your investment will help us to achieve our short term goals including:

  • Further develop the customer facing website so that it continues to meet expectations and improves our business processes
  • Launch new projects and services including working with local therapeutic growing projects which helps to diversify our supply chain whilst increasing our social impact, and creating a new dedicated service for elders in rural communities to help them remain living independently.
  • Find new ways to collaborate with others to address food poverty and to help people choose healthier eating options
