REVIEW: Farmstand, Covent Garden

REVIEW: Farmstand, Covent Garden

WHAT? Environmentally friendly, healthy food options to eat in or take away, with one simple message – eat better, feel better and live longer.


Relying on seasonal produce sourced as locally as possible, don’t expect to find strawberries here in December. Taking inspiration from the homegrown farm stalls found in the US Midwest (it’s not all Taco Bells and McDonald’s, y’know), Farmstand combines fast, easy service with fresh ingredients that make you feel instantly virtuous.

WHY GO? For guilt-free grazing and delicious sweet treats, too. All their food is  cooked in-house and free from refined sugar. The beef, chicken and lamb are naturally fed, humanely treated and free from hormones and antibiotics and the fish is ethically and sustainably sourced. Even the fruit, vegetables and grains are sustainably grown and GM free.

HOW MUCH? You can build your own box (choose 1 main dish and 2 sides, or 3 sides – £7.50) or grab a ready-made one from the fridge (between £4.50 – £7.50). If you’ve got time, do sit in – the music’s great and coffee’s decent, too. We tried lamb meatballs with smoked paprika and tomatoes, brown rice and quinoa plus broccoli, tahini and sesame seeds for a quick refuel while shopping in central London and we highly recommend you do the same.
