We are not just a vegetable delivery service, but a community of like-minded people all trying to make the world a better place.
Thats why our collection points are such an important part of our CSA. We think of them more as community hubs- places where members bump into each other when collecting, get to know the staff and support another local business. Its these small connections that help build community.
We also know many of our members have busy lives and need flexibility to collect their veggie bag each week. A collection point holds members bags until closing time- allowing up to a 7 hour window to drop by and collect the bag.
Our collection points are;
Wai Wai's Place (Sanchaung)
Wai Wai is one of the most helpful and giving people we know! Incredibly accomodating she runs a small guesthouse in Sanchaung and was our first collection point and still our busiest. She also runs a very popular restaurant on the rooftop which has some of the most delicious food in Yangon at incredible prices.
Hla Day (downtown)
Yangon's favourite gift and homeware shop! Hla Day has been a friend and supporter of Kokkoya for a long time. Kokkoya and Hla Day staff attended English classes together in 2018 and have all been firm friends since. Attending markets together, the Hla Day and Kokkoya teams can often be caught giggling and catching up! Hla Day staff are also very accomodating with our Food Waste Loop buckets- keeping any smelly ones for us in their bathroom! Hla Day supports many artisans and we recommend visiting them when looking for gifts to take home!
Nourish Cafe (Yaw Min Gyi St. area)*
Tucked away down a little alley in a popular part of Yangon, Nourish Cafe serves delicious vegan and vegetarian food next to Yangon Yoga House and Bliss Beauty Bar. Nourish Cafe have been valuable supporters of Kokkoya very early on, collaborating on events and using our farmer network for seasonal produce.
*update: Nourish Cafe is currently closed due to a kitchen fire. We hope they will be open again soon! Until then our friends at Othentic Creperie and Wine Bar have generously offered to be our collection point.
Country Store (Pun Hlaing Estate)
Our newest collection point- Pun Hlaing Estate invited Kokkoya for a coffee morning and we found enough like-minded people to help us start a community across the river!
