New Local Food Shop!
Hours: Thursday 12 - 5:30 pm
ocals can now source 100% Golden Bay grown fruit and veggies from one shop, near town, on Thursday afternoons.
The Local Food Shop, a new shop based at ‘the Kiosk’ at the Golden Bay Sustainable Living Centre (formally the Golden Bay Community Organic Gardens), sells a range of locally grown produce on Thursday afternoons from 2.30 to 6pm. Soon it will open on Tuesday afternoons at the same time too.
The idea was born in response to growing public demand for one convenient, reliable place to source food grown in Golden Bay.
The SLC team are aware there is a lot of good quality, organically grown produce available around Golden Bay. We intend to provide one central hub for people to come buy their local, in-season, weekly fruit and veggies.
The stories of the people growing the food feature on the walls of the shop to strengthen connections between the food we eat and the people who grow it.
A 10% ‘locals discount’ is available to members of the shop. Members will receive an email each Monday to show them what’s available each week. To become a member people must live in Golden Bay.
Initially the Local Food Shop will be open from 12 - 5:30 pm on 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.
The shop is located at 24 Waitapu Road, Takaka.
