Event Description

Join the Delicious Revolution

The inaugural SHOP LOCAL Newtown launches during 10-19 October 2014. Presented by Eat Happily, the campaign celebrates the abundance of local seasonal food within a one-mile radius—direct from the farm, distributed by independents and shared amongst the community.

EVENTS
See where your vegies come from, meet the farmer and learn about growing food. The Pickle Creek Farm tour (presented with Alfalfa House) includes morning tea with the farmer and the chance to participate in farm activities, whilst during the Common2us farm tour (presented with Ooooby) the farmer will demonstrate how to plant and will make a small delicious feed. Watch chef Kylie Kwong cook market produce and Doug Purdie extract urban honey at Eveleigh Farmers’ Markets.

COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES
Share recipes, ideas and tips with neighbours on social media with Cookalong Vege Box. Enjoy picturesque Sydney and celebrate the harvest in the company of good friends with Come Along to a Spring Picnic and Feast on Spring.

DO-IT-YOURSELF
Break up with your supermarket and Venture into Local Food with a map and a growing directory of local independents. Cook a One Mile Meal using what’s best and fresh and available locally. Become a Culinary Crusader and beat the drum for local fresh food.

Spread the word with #SHOP2042.
