Buy local for a fresh and tasty Christmas
This festive season serve your friends and family the best seasonal produce available. Buying local means that you not only feel good about supporting WA's growers, but you also get the freshest, best quality produce that you can find.

In my house I do the food shopping and, being the nerd that I am, I spend a lot of time hunting for the best value and quality available. Lucky for you I have compiled a list of my favourite places to buy from so you can save time and get shopping!

ONLINE:

There are more and more online options for buying local and organic produce. Get in quick though to get delivery before Christmas as last orders will be filling up!

The Local Grocer

Real Food Revolution (membership based coop)

Aussie Farmers

The Organic Collective

The Naked Butcher

FARMERS' MARKETS:

Farmers' Markets in Perth have continued to go from strength to strength. It is such a wonderful community activity to engage in while getting to know where your produce comes from and enjoying some time outdoors. Do yourself a favour and make it a weekly ritual.

My regular produce is primarily purchased from the Stirling Farmers Market on Cedric Street each Sunday morning. There is an ever-expanding range of meat, seafood, ready-meals, snacks, fruit and veg, drinks, plants and other products to buy, as well as live music and a raffle to support the Rotary Club of Karrinyup. Don't forget to grab some raw sauerkraut from Green Street Kitchen!!

Stirling Farmers Market

Other great markets include:

Mount Claremont Farmers Market

Kyilla Community Farmers Market (North Perth)

Victoria Park Farmers Market

For a full list of WA's Farmers Markets go to The Australian Farmers' Market Association directory here.

STORES:

My household consumes loads of fruit and veg each week so its no surprise that we need top-ups from the shops when the fridge starts to look a bit bare. My pick of the bunch are listed.

Sunfresh Fruit and Vegetables
2a/259 Scarborough Beach Road, Doubleview

Farmer Jacks
Various locations - always a great selection of local produce that is well labelled. I have found great produce in the Subiaco, North Beach and Woodlands stores.

Peach Fresh Food Market

1-3/195 Hampton Road, South Fremantle

Absolutely Organic WA
782 North Beach Road, Gwelup

So there you go. No excuses to doing the right thing and making a fresh, seasonal and best of all locally-grown feast this year!

Please leave a message if you have an amazing store you think I should add to the list. I would love to hear from you and discover more fresh food!
