A Shout Out for Bude Food Assembly

Food Assembly 3Received this email and thought it was time I gave a shout out to the Bude Food Assembly. Here’s what it says:

Yet another record! We now have more food products on offer from all our wonderful producers than ever before: 465 to be exact. We also have more family members than ever before, 991 to be precise! And that is fantastic.
Everybody can now find some excellent local super-fresh and zero-waste products to enjoy and at the same time contribute to the success of our local economy. Have a look and see!

Food Fest
Something to look forward to: This Wednesday we shall hold our regular monthly Taste Fest again. Our various producers will take a table each, display their wares and offer morsels for tasting. You will be able to collect your shopping as usual 5-6pm and also meet your producers face to face, ask questions, taste their food and buy from their stalls direct for cash whatever takes your fancy.
This will be the last time this year we will be at the excellent Oceans Community Centre this year, so thank you, Oceans, for letting us use your space over the Summer. From 14th September we will be back at Rosie’s Kitchen, Crooklets Beach, with the very ample and convenient car parking and great atmosphere. See you there.

Another freebie
This week we are for the last time offering a free loaf of Baker Tom’s bread with every order: 400 g Organic Malthouse masterpiece, just like granary, but a lot tastier.
Make sure you don’t miss out, place your order now!

What’s new:

Deliveries are by our carbon-neutral transport with effective food miles of ZERO.
Elmar have added more organic vegetables
Did you know we sell the cheapest beer in Bude? Just £2/ 500ml bottle of Bude Brewery beer, 20% less than any shop.

Really nice selection of fruit and all the standard organic and non-organic food: meat, veg, fresh fish, great BakerTom bread, Bude made chocolates & beer, a vast selection of sauces and jams, tea, juice & wine.
… and all because you are buying direct from producers, not via intermediaries.

All our food is, of course, direct from our REAL local farmers, growers, fishermen and food producers, unlike the pretend supermarket farms.
Also, unlike any other shop or even farmers market, Food Assembly produces ZERO waste – because we only harvest exactly as much as you have ordered and nothing goes to waste due to not being sold in time.

So come and shop with our North Cornwall food producers !

Order by Monday 9pm, collection from Oceans Community Centre, The Strand in Bude at 5-6pm on Wednesday or arrange for a Home Delivery (hiding in the ‘Crafts’ section)

Get your food fresher, better and fairer without costing the Earth!
