Canberras Sweet Spots

Some people say that Canberra can be boring, but Canberra has never been boring to me. There’s a hive of activity throughout Canberra, centred on suburban revolution, sustainability and excellent, everyday food. We’ve got an awesome community pushing “local produce” to a new level.

Cook Friendly Grocer

Cook Friendly Grocer is an innovative suburban grocer supporting local producers.

Our independent supermarkets and food retailers are a key part of the “local produce” community. A growing number of the independent supermarkets have been supporting Canberra Urban Honey and many other local food producers, like The Muesli Bar, Little Monster Chocolate and Pialligo Estate. They are a key part of the sustainability for our city and have helped local food producers, including us, grow.

Ainslie IGA

Ainslie IGA are outstanding supporters of local produce and have been a key factor in the success of many Canberra food producers.

There has been a lot of attention around the way some of the bigger supermarkets treat farmers and people are questioning their behaviour. I want to give a big shout out to Canberra’s independent supermarkets and food retailers that support local produce and sustainability. Thanks for creating opportunity and supporting local producers.

Have you been to the cafes that showcase local produce? They are innovating and taking “local produce” in exciting directions. If you’ve driven past your local café or supermarket and haven’t stopped to have a look yet, then you really should.
