I saw Manny on The Cut yesterday and said that I - and many others - were bereft without his vegetables. He's definitely still in the trade, supplying bulk to local restaurants and pubs (incl Anchor and Hope).
He said the stall wasn't worth the time. I asked whether he might consider doing a weekly box for individual households if there was enough interest. I would be very happy to pay a regular sum in advance for a weekly box, comprising the basics and whatever interesting is in season. £10 or £15 a week would get a lot of veg.
If a few other Waterloo residents were interested in doing the same it might work... maybe he could drop off the boxes somewhere (Waterloo Action Centre?) for collection. Anyone else interested?
Oh yes, I'm defintely interested in giving this a try, at least for a couple of months or so. I realy liked his choice of veg, herbs etc - nothing else local is quite the same and I've really missed not being able to shop at his market stall on a Saturday morning.
Collecing a box each week from the Waterloo Action Centre would be handy. I can have a word with a couple of my neighbours as well to see if there's any interest.
