People in Golden Bay will soon be able to source 100% locally grown fruit and veggies from one shop, near town, twice a week.

The Local Food Shop, a new shop based at ‘the Kiosk’ at the Sustainable Living Centre (formally the Golden Bay Community Organic Gardens), will sell a range of locally grown produce on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. 

The idea was born in response to growing demand for one convenient, reliable place to source food grown in our own community, says Sustainable Living Centre community engagement manager Charlotte Squire.

“There’s so much good quality, organically grown produce available around Golden Bay. We’re offering one central hub for people to come buy their local, in-season, weekly fruit and veggies,” says Charlotte.

She says the stories of the people growing food will feature on the walls of the shop, “to grow connections between the food we eat and the people who grow it.”

A 10% ‘locals discount’ will be available to members of the shop. Members, who must live in Golden Bay, will receive an email each Monday to show them what’s available each week. Initially the Local Food Shop will be open from 2.30 to 6pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, to cater for people picking their children up from school and those who finish work at 5pm. Over time the shop hours will increase.
