Baldwin's Herbs Named One of the Best Food Delivery Services in London

At the beginning of lockdown this year, the coronavirus changed our grocery shopping habits dramatically. Many people who used to pop to the supermarket every few days found themselves forced to queue and do one weekly shop, and those who needed to self-isolate scrabbled over sought-after supermarket delivery slots. With farmers’ markets, food fairs and independent shops shut, it became increasingly difficult for environmentally conscious shoppers to find the healthy, sustainable food they loved.

Thankfully, the days of sparse shelves seem to be behind us for the most part. However, the need for online grocery shopping and food delivery in London and beyond is still here and doesn’t show any signs of going away soon. To help Londoners navigate the relatively new waters of getting sustainable food and drink delivered straight to their doors, Good Hemp created the Best Sustainable Food Delivery Guide in London - and, happily, Baldwin’s Herbs made the list.

What is the Best Sustainable Food Delivery Guide in London?

Two things ring true these days: the way we think about food has changed and the way we shop for food is different than it was even 12 months ago. Veganism and vegetarianism have been on the rise for a while now, and it’s become more important than ever to support local businesses and work towards more environmentally conscious eating and buying habits.

Good Hemp’s guide to London’s food delivery services comes up with solutions to these issues, such as suggesting vegan recipes people can make at home, showcasing local sustainable food and beverage shops and highlighting the best online grocery shopping and recipe/meal box services available.

Baldwin’s Herbs and Good Hemp

We’re pleased to say we’ve been named by Good Hemp as one of the most sustainable local food shops in London. We’ve been an integral part of the South East London community for over 170 years and we aren’t planning to slow down anytime soon. We’re a family-owned business that specialise in natural remedies, as well as everyday essentials for vegans (and non-vegans) like bread, pasta and hemp milk.

If you feel comfortable, you can pop in and visit us in person Monday to Saturday - we’re small enough that you can skip the queues and crowded aisles at the major supermarkets but big enough that we think we’ll have all the supplements, essences, crafts and foodstuffs you’d ever need and more. Plus, you can rest easy knowing you’re supporting a local business.

Don’t want to risk going out to the shops? To make online grocery shopping safer and easier for our customers, we also offer home delivery - and free delivery for orders in the UK over £20.

We’re working hard to keep supplying you with the same outstanding service we’ve prided ourselves on for over a century while still remaining sensitive to and keeping up with the current climate.

What Does the Future Hold?

As 2020 progresses, it seems more and more obvious that the future is virtual. From online grocery shopping and food delivery in London to work calls via Zoom and Skype calls with friends, more and more of us are using the internet to meet our daily nutritional and social needs. And, with a little help from initiatives like Good Hemp’s food guide, it’s easier than ever to navigate new parts of this virtual world, like food delivery and sustainable local shopping.

We’re pleased to have been named one of the best local food delivery services in London - why don’t you try us out and see for yourself why we made the cut?
