Get your Christmas fuit and veg from the Vale Grocer in Denbigh. All of our veg is organic, much of it is grown locally (just outside Henllan and in Prion) and the rest is from the UK where possible.

Whilst our shop is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings the week before Christmas, to guarantee your veg we recommend pre-ordering asap (see below for how to do this). If you would like to order Christmas veg then we need to know by midday Monday 11th December at the latest.

If you are one of our veg box subscribers then your box will be delivered as normal Tues 19th/Wed 20th and will contain some Christmas veg, but it’s not designed for the Christmas period.

Pre-ordering Christmas Veg

We place our order with the wholesaler on Tuesday 12th December and need time to plan. If you don’t get an order in before then, don’t worry, we’ll still have plenty of produce in for you. However, it really helps us if you know by midday Monday 11th December if you definitely want your veg from us, as hopefully then we can avoid running out of anything.

All emails to be sent to eatyourgreens@thevalegrocer.co.uk with the heading Christmas Veg

You have two options:

  1. A DIY box – send us your shopping list of Christmas fruit and veg (+ any store-cupboard items) you’d like us to box up for you and we’ll do the best we can and invoice you when you pick up on Sat 23rd Dec. Please give us rough quantities (rather than ‘3 carrots’ for example!) – the examples below give an idea of portion sizes
  2. Christmas fruit and veg box – below we’ve put together what we think would be a good selection of produce (note that quantities are based upon what we think and a bit of experience). We’ve given a cost estimate for each of these veg boxes but we won’t be 100% until we’ve placed the order, it won’t be more than this amount though. You can obviously also order one of these plus add extras if you wish.

Your Christmas box will be available for pick up (or delivery – only within Denbigh) on Saturday 23rd Dec 9-12 – or earlier if you ask us.

For our box customers we can deliver additional Christmas boxes with your normal veg box that week, or you can collect from the shop – please let us know when you order.
