The Northern Valleys Locavore Store was created to give local producers from the Northern Valley's region a place to sell their ethical and sustainable produce as well as giving consumers the opportunity to buy direct from farmers without driving all over the countryside!
The store is unique in that local producers and farmers can offer their produce for sale at whatever price they want, and just offer what they have to sell at the time. It’s more like a farmer’s market than a shop – but the producers themselves don't have to be there.
The store only sells food grown or produced within 100kms, so it’s truely local! Buying fresh produce with low food miles lessens the impact on the environment and helps secure a sustainable food future for everyone!
The Northern Valleys Locavore Store also offers free tastings by arrangement for tour groups and parties. This can include tastings of locally grown honey, olive oils, handcrafted cheeses, soft drinks and kombucha and in-season fruit. 24 hours notice is preferred in this instance.
