Ted’s Veg started in Boston, Lincolnshire, many moons ago. A family-run business, which has been going on for generations, The Ted family were born out of a family of farmers. When Ted took over the family business they were operating as suppliers to wholesale markets, but soon decided to expand and open their very own greengrocers in various locations in London.
Throughout all this change, Ted and his family are adamant that one thing has stayed the same; their produce is still grown with his family’s love of farming at the heart of it, and the business is fuelled by their passion of delivering the best produce to their customers.
Ted’s Veg are committed to providing the best, freshest and home-grown produce as well as sourcing exotic fruit from around the world. Their produce is chemical-free, so don’t be surprised if you find the odd critter amongst your carrots or cabbage! Going a step further, they also produce their very own juices, fig jam, marmalade, honey and much more.
