Cultivate was set up to get more food from Oxfordshire’s food producers onto the dinner plates of the hungry masses! Since the launch of the VegVan in 2012, we have worked with more than 40 local growers, farmers, bakers, cooks and makers, as well as selling veg from our own 10-acre market garden in Little Wittenham.

Here’s a list of the producers we have been working with recently, and their distance in miles from Carfax Tower in the centre of Oxford. At any one time not all of these producers will have items available in the shop, but keep your eyes peeled and they should make an appearance before too long!

Further afield

We buy as much of our produce as possible locally, and when we can’t get stuff from round here, we buy from further afield, using Choice Organics, based just outside of Western International Market in West London. See our sourcing principles for more on how we decide what to buy and from where.
