Chegworth Valley Juices are a familiar sight at London’s farmers’ markets. In fact, family man and farmer David insists they were present on the opening day of every farmers’ market they now frequent. So it’s no surprise to find them at the forefront of a new development in farming – urban farm shops. And in a charming nod to the company’s roots, on market days the back doors of the new Chegworth shop on Kensington Church Street are flung open, creating a gateway to farmers and their wares.
Chegworth’s 17 different juices are the hero products of the store but customers can also buy farm-made cakes, crumbles and soups, locally baked ‘flourish’ bread and dozens of wonderful and largely Kentish products. Taywell ice cream, Ripple Farm salad, Hurdlebrook cream, plus eggs and chickens from Mayfield Farm are just a few of the other goodies on offer.
The shop also delivers daily to local postcodes and supplies local business and offices. After shopping (they are often open till 8pm – call the shop for details on 020 7229 3016) why not visit the Notting Hill Arts Club where all the cocktails are created with Chegworth fruit and veg. Green, local and a bit tipsy – a perfect combination?
