Healthy, honest food means eating with peace of mind: that is everybody's dream – and The Food Assembly takes that dream seriously.
The Food Assembly gives you the tools to bring fresh produce to your friends, family and neighbourhood, while supporting local farmers and foodmakers.
Being part of your Food Assembly is a fantastic way to shop. With less food miles, it is the freshest food available. By preordering online, it is convenient and there's no food waste. Picking up your order at the pop-up market enables you to meet your local producers and neighbours.
See below how you can join the movement that is changing the way we eat.
