How does affordable, great quality and culturally appropriate fresh food sound to you?
Now, what if we told you that what you’ll find at the community grocer not-for-profit, pop up markets was 30-40% cheaper than the stuff you find at the supermarket?
It’s a bit of no-brainer, right? You can shop at one of their weekly pop-up markets, located in either low-income or low-access areas, that focus on a culturally diverse range of fruits and veggies.
This initiative started from the desire to provide access to affordable, quality produce to anyone who wants to create healthy, responsibly-sourced meals. The first community market opened up in Carlton in 2014; they now run weekly stalls in over five different areas of Melbourne, with new venues opening soon.
The Community Grocer is a steady source of food to all, be it rain or shine. Mixed fruit and veggie boxes are available at each and every market for only $25, allowing them to maintain freshness, and ensure zero food wastage.
