Best Food Box Deliveries In Wimbledon

Food & Drink Editor Paloma Lacy lists the best food box deliveries in Wimbledon…

We’ve heard it over and over again during the past few months, that these are unprecedented times and the way to get through self-isolation and lockdown is to find a new normal. So many have called for us all to take a fresh look at how we do things in the new confine of our homes.

An over reliance on supermarkets has sent even the most sensible shoppers into a spin. Too used to 24hr shopping, we’ve laughed in the face of seasonality but where has it got us? Queuing for hours outside supermarkets and when we finally get inside and find they haven’t quite got what we’re looking for, panic sets in. The illusion of choice has actually made people less resourceful. So what if you can’t get fresh raspberries? Choose another fruit or purchase something else and eat that instead.

As consumers, we’ve had it too good for too long and it might well have taken a pandemic to teach us the real value of what we have and that it’s ok not to be able to get everything we want. Remember that by and large, our wants are just that, they’re not needs.

It’s time to think beyond the supermarkets. Not least because even online deliveries – once everyone’s weekly divine right are a rare find in the current climate. But fear not, there are so many suppliers of fruit, veg, meat, fish, dairy, baked goods and store cupboard ingredients happy to deliver directly to your door weekly, reminiscent of grocery delivery services of years gone by.

Many of them used to supply solely to London’s restaurants – before restaurants were ordered to close to in-house diners – and have changed their business models accordingly, opening their order books to mere mortals, like you and me. Top notch produce is guaranteed, no lugging heavy items back from the shops, and you can support local firms while you’re at it. What’s not to like?

We’ve put together a round-up of those just waiting to deliver to you and keep you out of the supermarket queues.
