LOCAL FOOD FOR LOCALS
After cooking professionally in Sydney for almost 10 years the market launched as The Local Harvest Collective in June 2013 from my mum's private rooftop down a little laneway in Potts Point with word of mouth the only advertising and marketing. Fresh local produce for a small group of people packed in recycled coffee bean sacks and hand-made cheese, pickles, butter, jam and cold-pressed juice as ambitious additions.
Organically evolving after years of nomadic relocations within Paramount House awaiting the completion of Paramount Recreation Club, the market has settled into a truly remarkable space. The line between seeking wellness and socialising is perfectly blurred as a beautiful wholistic ritual every Saturday morning.
The produce is collected fresh from farmers very early on Saturday morning before the market and assembled on-site by our community of volunteers.
The Locals Market is plastic free (no punnets!) and only paper bags made of recycled paper are used.
Welcome to the community.
