Each month, Urban Locavore hand picks 6 to 10 of Western Australia’s best products and delivers them directly to your door in the Perth metropolitan area. Some products you may have seen before, some will be unknown but we are sure you will love each one.
We are a team of passionate WA food lovers. We are not affiliated with any product or company, the only bias we have is towards local producers.
For the last 7 years I have been working as a freelance web developer in Melbourne, San Francisco and Buenos Aires. It was in San Francisco that I was exposed to the Locavore movement and the seeds of Urban Locavore were sown.
Read this great article in the Subiaco Post by Jona Turle which gives some more background on the inspiration and motivation behind Urban Locavore.
I feel like I’ve got a face that could launch 1000 ships rather than Urban Locavore, but having Paul dangle the title of Food Curator in front of me was just too tempting a treat. After seven years of co-publishing Spice magazine I have had the pleasure of meeting, knowing and photographing hundreds of food producers from all over Western Australia and my involvement in Urban Locavore will allow me to continue this relationship.
I’ve been working in marketing and branding for over a decade throughout Australia and Asia, with clients including Vodafone, Xbox and Australian Fashion Week. My love of locally-grown food comes from years spent on my family’s pistachio farm in WA’s Wheatbelt. I’m passionate about supporting local producers, celebrating great food and bringing the best of WA to Perth’s Urban Locavores!
We are small part of a bigger movement which aims to reduce food miles and associated emissions, embrace seasonality and local produce and support smaller growers and producers who use organic or biodynamic methods in their production.
Small changes in buying habits can make big differences.
- To discover & share great food made by talented and passionate producers in Western Australia.
- To promote & support producers who source most (or all) of their ingredients locally.
- To encourage consumers to think about and question where their food comes from and how it is produced.
