Food Float is a community interest company – run by the community for the community since its formation in 2009.
Look out for the Festive Food Float stall at the Town Christmas Event on Sunday 3 December, 12-6pm. We’ll be in St Martin’s Walk.
The Circular Dorking stall will be nearby – with a complimentary gift-wrapping service for items purchased at our stall.
We aim to support the local economy by offering local profit-making food businesses a reliable outlet for their produce at a fair cost. We also work with a number of individuals, including home bakers and beekeepers. Food Float itself is organised on a not-for-profit basis. In October, we won the CREST23 Transforming Food Award – read about this local (Surrey) initiative on our page here.
We offer high-quality produce from 30+ local suppliers: seasonal vegetables and fruit, eggs, milk, cream, coffee, fruit juices, bread, cakes and sweet and savoury pastries, fresh meat and poultry, sausages, bacon, cheese, butter, cinnamon granola, fudge, honey, and chutneys, jams and marmalades.
On Fridays the Food Float stall is in the main square in St Martin’s Walk and on Saturdays on the High Street next to Boots. Trading hours are 8.30am to early afternoon. On Thursdays we make deliveries to homes in Dorking and the surrounding villages.
The stall will have its final trading days of the year on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 December, and will be back on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 January 2024.
We work hard to keep waste to a minimum. Many customers return their egg-boxes, milk bottles, and preserves jars, and we pass them back to the suppliers for re-use. Cardboard goes to recycling. We don’t generate much food waste but Tim’s locally-reared pigs appreciate anything they receive…
