Food Float is a community interest company – run by the community for the community since its formation in 2009.
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.
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.
We offer high-quality produce from 30+ local suppliers: seasonal vegetables and fruit, eggs, milk, cream, coffee, bread, cakes and pastries, fresh meat and poultry, sausages, bacon, cheese, butter, cinnamon granola, fudge, honey, and chutneys, jams and marmalades.
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…
We are hoping (as of 09/2023) that the Twitter feed to our website will be working again soon.
