Thank you very much indeed to everyone who helped make 2022 another busy and enjoyable year for Food Float. The desire for local produce appears to be going from strength to strength. Our best wishes to all for 2023.
Food Float is a community interest company – run by the community for the community since 2009.
We aim to support the local economy by offering local profit-making 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, meat and poultry, cheese, muesli bars, cinnamon granola, fudge, butter, honey, and chutneys, jams and marmalades. We also offer, for delivery, items from the local zero-waste shop Eco Be, including pasta, rice, oats, muesli, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, nuts and dried fruit.
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…
