The St Albans Fruit & Vege Co-Op aims to give people access to healthy, fresh food at a fair price and involve people in building their community.

This is run by the Community Focus Trust based in St Albans.

Each week you will receive a selection of fresh produce, with different variety most weeks. All produce is seasonal and fresh. The average saving per week if brought from a mainstream supermarket is around $15.00, so you could save on average $60 per month.

Option 2: Contact us on our Facebook page telling us how you wish to pay (Cash or Direct Credit), and if you will be ordering weekly or fortnightly.
