Online Farmers' Market for Essex and Suffolk

Holt Farm is a family farm growing fruit and vegetables in Great Oakley, near Colchester.

We have opened an online farmers market offering fruit and vegetable box delivery free to homes in Colchester, Braintree, Ipswich and surrounding areas of Essex and South Suffolk. You can also order other delicious local produce, alcohol and store cupboard essentials for free delivery (minimum order £12.50). We are adding more produce from local food and drink producers every day.

Please visit our FAQ page for more information of what we offer.

 

We’ve launched Holt Farm to give the local community access to fresh food, to share the delicious fruit and vegetables we grow and to champion our fellow local producers.

Fruit & Veg Boxes

Our fruit and vegetable boxes contain the best seasonal local produce from asparagus and strawberries, Essex potatoes, onions, lettuce and unusual citrus to heritage tomatoes from Holt Farm later this summer.  They’re topped up with essentials from the market including carrots, oranges and others we can't grow.

Guest Producers

Over the years we have developed friendships, partnerships and joint ventures with a handful of like-minded producers. Whether it is our customers who use our own fruit or veg to create their delicious products, fellow growers passionate about shared interests or flavour fanatics working with us to introduce new crops to the UK. We are sure you will love the very special products of theirs that we can deliver to your kitchen.
