Growing Melbourne’s Food Culture

The growing and selling of native Australian produce is a fledgling industry, but has a national and increasingly international market that values sustainability and nutrition as well as the new aesthetics and tastes that the produce presents. Retail opportunities exist in green markets, small wholesalers as well as branded food outlets, and yet the widespread take up of a new national palate remains slow.

This project showcases the delights of native Australian produce and aims to expand Melbourne’s native food culture through the appropriation of a Yarra River boathouse into a native produce providore, a waterside festival pavilion and bar, and a headquarters for ANFIL, the national advocating body for native produce growers and sellers.
