Halloween is Coming...
Well the weeks are flying by and Dig-In is almost 6 months old! Thanks so much to all our customers and shareholders who have made Scotland's first urban community greengrocer a reality. As the nights draw in we have a wealth of new produce in the shop for you, including new organic fruit and vegetables. Our organic deliveries start on a Tuesday, so be sure to visit Dig-In to see what seasonal goodies we have in store! Recent fresh produce includes beautiful squash, pomegranates for winter salads, pumpkins for Halloween and fruit for Bonfire Night toffee apples.

We've also had organic unwaxed lemons - perfect for cooking with. Don't forget to visit the back room of the shop where we have new lines including Tiphereth organic local jam from the foot of the Pentland Hills and all your usual favourites.
