Seasonal Fruit & Veg, Delivered?!

Going for a lovely walk last week with my friend Lucy and her fluffy baby Fritz (the schnauzer), many wonderful things came out of it. Obviously, the fresh air, the hilarious conversation (we are pretty funny people), the game we like to play called 'how many dog-owners look like their pooches' [answer: quite a lot]. However, possibly the pearl of the afternoon was Lucy's recommendation for this place...

The Local Harvest Collective!

The wonderful Talia makes up bags of fresh, seasonal produce in lots of 1-person and 2-person bags. We opted for the 2-person option, and the amount of stuff in there was amazing. We're talking beans, kale, apples, blueberries, rhubarb, sweet potato, lettuce, eggplant, herbs, onions, mushrooms... and more! Each week it changes, and she always includes a bunch of flowers and occasional other goodies. This week we were lucky enough to get some of her home-made muesli and her partner's own coffee blend. Considering Ed works for Single Origin, you can safely assume his own blends are just as fantastic (and it is, we had some yesterday).

I can't rave about this enough. It was a good price, and by the time we bought meat yesterday, we ended up about the same as what we normally spend per week. Perhaps a bit cheaper. We love shopping at the farmer's markets (Marrickville on Sunday is a firm favourite), but with a 4-month old, sometimes it's just a bit hard. By the time she's had her first good nap for the day, it's way too busy at the market. And a pram is out of the question! So you end up carrying the bub and arms full of heavy veggies. Not something you want to do all the time, let me tell you.

If you're in Sydney and you want to give 'em a go, then check out their site and email Talia. She's a gem and her idea (and execution of it) is gold.
