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.

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.
