Organic Food

By Sx - 19 September 2010 10

Hi!  We’ve just moved to Canberra from Sydney, living in Holt.  In Sydney, I used to be a member of a group that bought organic fruit and vegetables from a wholesaler every fortnight and divided it up amongst ourselves.  Much cheaper than going to the shops.  Does anybody know of a group like that going anywhere?

Thanks!

Sophia

Be careful at the farmers market, there aren’t that many stalls that are actually organic or chemical free. A few good stalls are:

Veg:
Glean meala

there is a potato lady from crookwell

there is a Japanese run farm called kandodai or something.

Fruit:

Loriendale, apples (in season)

Meat:

ando organics

Moorlands biodynamic lamb

greenhill farms

other:

capra cheese (organic goats cheese)

country valley have organic milk

there are a few others, I would ask stall holders if they are certified organic, don’t assume any of them are. Also “organic fertilizer low spray” is an advertising line not anything more.

If you find one certified organic stallholder they will let you know who else is certified organic. or check out the website stall holder list:

also chokuby jo does stock produce from a lot of the above mentioned. they are in North Lyneham.

I’ve been using Wholefood Central http://www.wholefoodcentral.com.au for three years now, recommended by my sister in law with a large family. They deliver to Canberra every Wednesday. I really like the brother/sister team that owns the business – excellent customer service and good quality, organic food. You pay a deliver charge, but I really save in time ordering through them.

Yes the farmers Market at Epic every Saturday Morning Great Organic products straight from the farmers, even meat. Not a co op but great for a morning out opens at 8 am and finishes at 11 am, very good prices too (well the meat is a little expensive but very nice.

Not exactly the same, but try Choku Baijo in North Lyneham shops.
