Our online market is currently closed. Our next online market will open shortly.
Welcome to NeighbourFood Waterford at GROW HQ. We are an online market where you can order local products direct from farmers and producers, and then simply collect your order from GROW HQ. It is a one-stop-shop for great seasonal products direct from local farmers and producers. You can join now to keep up to date with our weekly market.
GROW HQ is the home of the GIY movement and our national food education centre in Waterford City. It is the capital of GIY-land, the mothership and a place of joy, healing and great food that embodies all things GIY. Set on 4 acres in Waterford City, we’re just across the road from University Hospital Waterford at Ardkeen. It’s the last place you’d expect to find people growing food, but that’s why we love it so much.
So how does it all work? Once you join our market you will receive an email with a link to the online shop. Every Friday we will list our suppliers’ offerings and we will notify you so you can start browsing. Once you’ve made a selection, you complete your order and pay online up to midnight on Tuesday. Then our producers get busy baking, packing and picking. They drop your order to GROW HQ so it is ready and waiting for you to collect on Thursday between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm.
In this new time of social distancing and changing shopping habits, NeighbourFood is a contactless and safe way to shop that also connects you with local producers.
