Chegworth Valley has been voted 'London Best Greengrocer' in the Slow Food London Awards 2015, retaining their title for the second 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 Valley have two London shops, one at Borough Market which specialises in the very best organic produce as well as selling Chegworth Valley's award-winning range of juices and the other in Notting Hill - Chegworth Farm Shop - stocked to the brim with some of the best SLOW food and organic products. Deliveries are made daily to both 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.
David Deme, owner, commented "We are absolutely over the moon to have been voted as London's Best Greengrocer for the second year running. It is obviously a very competitive market to be in, and we appreciate our customers taking the time to vote for us in the awards. We put all our heart into our farm and shops, and to have this recognised by SLOW food London means a huge amount to us & makes all the hours put in all the more worthwhile".
Chegworth Valley also took runners-up spot in the "Best Slow Food Product" category this year for its Apple Juice, a great achievement in a highly competitive category with a huge range of products entered.

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...
