Potato Day 2021

From now until potato day (late February), we’ll be focussing on collecting orders!
You can still catch up on our latest information in the News tab across the top of the page.

What’s Potato Day?

Each year we raise funds for the group at a seed potato sale. We normally hire out a community centre in the East End of Glasgow and we have a huge range of stalls from various community organisations, charities, and food groups too.

Basically, it’s your chance to get ahead of the season and buy some certified disease-free starters for your crop.

How will it work this year?

Rather than hiring a venue, we’re taking orders online and we’ll hold them for collection at a central location on a specific date.

We’ll let you know when your order is ready for collection – more details below.

Who is this open to?

Anyone in Glasgow! We’re not a full-scale sales operation, so all individual orders need to be collected from our central location. That means we’re not able to sell to anyone from outside Glasgow, or who won’t be able to travel to Glasgow to pick up during our collection window (details of which to follow).

When can I collect?

Orders will be fulfilled on Potato Day in late February, after all sales are closed.

We’ll need to control the pickup queue to comply with distancing regulations, so you’ll be notified of your collection window closer to the time.

If you think you’ll be fairly flexible with getting to a location in Glasgow, go ahead and place your order.

If you’re more restricted with when and where you can travel, you might want to hold off and place your order closer after we’ve confirmed the logistics.

We’re monitoring the current national travel and social distancing restrictions closely, and we’ll keep this info updated as the situation develops.

To sign up for our newsletter, drop us a message at GAFnewsletter@gmail.com and we’ll put you on the list!

I still have questions!

No problem. Contact info@potatoday.online and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

Can I save money by ordering in bulk with other plotholders?

Funny you should ask – yes, you can!

Bulk orders are priced at £1 cheaper for every item on the list. Contact your local committee, then put your orders in by email rather than via the web shop.
