Chegworth Valley has been voted 'London Best Greengrocer' in the Slow Food London Awards 2016, making it a hatrick for the family run farm, which has retained the title for the 3rd year running.
The awards, which are based entirely on public votes, aim to recognise the very best SLOW food producers & retailers across London and are highly regarded within the food & drink industry.
Chegworth have London shops at Borough Market and Notting Hill, as well as attending over 12 farmers' markets each weekend. Most recently, Chegworth Farm Shop on the Pantiles has also launched.
Deliveries are made daily to all shops from the family's home farm in the heart of Kent, meaning that both shops are able to supply some of the freshest produce London has to offer, with weekend markets offering wider London the chance to pick up the best seasonal produce hand picked on the farm.
Ben Deme, director, commented "Once again we are extremely excited to have been able to retain our title as London's Best Slow Greengrocer. Both our family and the team at Chegworth put a huge amount of effort in to the offering and displays at our shops & markets and it means a huge amount to be recognised both by our customers and Slow Food London. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us in the year's awards.

About Us Chegworth Valley is a family-run fruit farm established in the beautiful Kent countryside in 1983. The fruit is hand selected and pressed in small batches, often within hours of picking. The juices are then gently pasteurised to retain the nutritional properties and flavour of the fruit. The range includes organic juices along with a wide selection of single varietal and blended fruit juices, including raspberry, strawberry, wild elderflower, rhubarb & beetroot. Famous mainly for its apple and pear juices, in recent years the farm has seen rapid expansion to now include an extensive range of top and soft fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs available seasonally. The farm has shops at Borough Market and Notting Hill as well as at the farm gate and attends numerous farmers markets throughout London and Kent. Read more...
