Why us?

We at The Modern Greengrocer wanted to create a top class alternative option for our customers who want to shop local and support local Essex businesses, but maybe do not have the time to visit the high street. We truly believe in supporting local businesses and the importance of the high street to the heritage of our country but realised, that in order for it to survive, it needed to evolve.


At The Modern Greengrocer we pride ourselves on our 5 Core Principles:

Fresh Produce

Quality and freshness is paramount to what we do and we purchase our produce 6 nights a week at Spitalfields market to ensure this.

Responsibly sourced

As far as possible we support local Essex farmers and producers and believe strongly in seasonal produce.

Competitively priced

Quality costs but it shouldn’t cost the earth. All our products are competitively priced and we guarantee it’s cheaper than you might think!

Conveniently supplied

We all live hectic lives but why should that affect the quality of our produce. Order online and sit back and wait for a delicious box of produce to arrive at your door.

Traditional Experience

Although it’s a modern concept, the traditional service shouldn’t be affected and we believe it should feel just like it did when your mum bought from the local market stall.
