Our food

The Hornbeam Café and Organiclea Community Growers believe in the importance of sustainably grown food and want to celebrate the good connections that local food creates.

Our sister organisation Organiclea Growing Community supplies The Hornbeam Cafe and also has a market stall outside the Hornbeam every Saturday.

Organiclea grow fruit and vegetables at our Hawkwood Nursery market garden site in Chingford. They have regular volunteer opportunities, open days and training courses at this beautiful 12 acre site.

The Hornbeam Café and Organiclea’s box scheme and market stalls are also supplied by small-scale organic farmers in Norfolk, Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, and by other local allotment and garden growers selling their surplus through a ‘Cropshare’ scheme.

We also source from further afield, for example fairtrade bananas from the Dominican Republic, lemons from Spain. Our dried goods come from Suma Wholefoods Cooperative.
