7th August 2019 will see the launch of Slow Food Hub JQ (Jewellery Quarter) Birmingham’s online ‘Farm Shop in the City’.
The Hub will be a shop for residents tired of chain supermarkets, large food miles, poor quality food and excessive plastic packaging. With the aim of creating a sense of community, shoppers can order online and will have a collection point at 1000 Trades, 16 Fredrick Street, B1 3HE. The Slow Food Hub prides itself in supporting the best West Midlands farmers and slow producers, from the farm straight to the table.
Consumers will have the opportunity to shop direct with the producers, with no minimum spend and no subscription fee. Candace and Kate, both residence at the Jewellery Quarter, are the co-ordinators of the first Slow Food Hub in Birmingham. Along with other Slow Food members, they will be helping 1000 Trades on pick up night, which will be 6.30 – 8pm on 7th August, and every week thereafter. They are proud to say that they will stock the very best food Britain has to offer.
The Hub opens for orders 26th July 2019. Registration is free and now open at www.bigbarn.co.uk/register
