Why Buy at TAMS?
The Story of TAMS
In 2013, a model for running a cooperative-style market stall to sell on glut produce from Aberdeen City allotment sites was developed by The Allotment Market Stall (TAMS). The idea was to reduce waste from allotment sites, offer volunteering opportunities, reduce food miles by selling only fruit and vegetables grown in Aberdeen and donate any surplus to the food bank network. In this way, it would contribute to the health and well-being of the citizens of Aberdeen and give access to high-quality, competitively priced fruit and vegetables grown with love and care by the city's allotment gardeners.
