Welcome to the Lee Food Assembly!

We are extremely excited to be bringing this food movement to Lee, providing easy access to fresh, local, delicious food; whilst creating a network that supports local food producers and farmers with a fair and transparent food system.

Every week you'll be able to chose from a great range of products, that will be baked/ picked/ made fresh for your orders! With vegetables and fruit picked the day before, to bread fresh out of the oven, and sustainable meat, fish, and dairy products at your fingertips, you can find an exclusive selection of local products at the Assembly.

All producers are within an average of 16 miles away, so it really is the freshest out there! Our selection will be completely unique, as the fresh produce will vary seasonally, and our creative bakers and patisseries are constantly experimenting.

By shopping at food assembly you support:

1) Brilliant access to truly local and amazing quality food, and a place to meet the people who make them

2) ZERO food waste- farmers know how much they’ve sold in advance

3) A fairer deal for producers, who take over 80% of the sales as opposed to under 20% when sold in a supermarket.

4) A fun hub and excuse for people to get together

So when does this happen?

We run once a fortnight. you can order between Friday and Tuesday and then collect on the Thursday from the lovely Home cafe on Lee Road between 6:30-8:30PM.

This food assembly is a space for you, so please get in touch if you want to get involved/ know producers that would...or just generally have any ideas! You can contact me on: leefoodassembly@gmail.com

We hope you'll find this a great and convenient way to buy truly local food and support your local farmers.

We look forward to meeting you :)
