London Veg Van

Londoners can now purchase local, farm-fresh fruits and veggies thanks to The Veg Van.

Last week, The Veg Van opened in the London borough of Sutton, offering locally harvested, seasonal fruits and vegetables to commuters who do not otherwise have access to such produce. The mobile produce stand will service thousands of people in Hackbridge, a suburb of Sutton, and it is conveniently parked outside the Hackbridge rail station where many commuters traverse daily. The van, nicknamed "Veggie," will also visit local schools to encourage and introduce fresh produce to local youths. One Planet Food, a three-year, borough-wide project by UK-based environmental charities BioRegional and EcoLocal, operate The Veg Van.
