Monday Shop is a friendly food co-op and social space on Cowley Road every Monday
Based upstairs in the East Oxford Community Centre, Monday Shop offers a small pop-up shop with local organic fruit and veg from Cultivate, locally produce bread from Cornfield Bakery, eggs from Willowbrook Farm just outside Oxford, as well as local Honey from Iffley Fields, courtesy of Tiddly Pommes.
The idea for Monday Shop came from Cultivates surplus produce from weekend markets that would not remain fresh until the next market. This is why Monday Shop offer the veg for payment by donation it prevents the food going to waste as well as making healthy, local food more accessible to all sections of the community. The demand for veg has now increased enough for us also to order additional produce from Cultivate at full price. The proceeds for the surplus veg is split between Monday Shop and Cultivate each week.
Different to the normal shopping experience, Monday Shop includes a social space with free hot drinks enabling socialising with other members of the community, discussing food, and highlighting other food events in Oxford.
Run by 5 Oxford locals, the aim of the project is to make local food accessible to everyone, and pricing non prohibitive to a cross-section of the community. Regular events on well sourced, healthy food and reducing waste and packaging are also top of the priority list.
