What started as a way to get organic, local, seasonal and sustainable produce to the people of the inner city has taken another step towards making good food accessible. The Local Harvest Collective – best known as the pick-up (from Potts Point) or delivery service (to local areas) that gets you a whole bag of fresh produce for the week – is set to feature at the Darlo Bar Markets on Saturdays as a pop-up in its upstairs bar from March 15 until May 3.
“I am really looking forward to becoming a part of the Darlo Bar community and sharing my food philosophies with the locals of Darlinghurst,” says founder Talia Smith.
As always, Smith’s selection of fruit and veg is on rotation and depends on what looks good and is in season, but there are always a handful of carefully selected local products that you can add on top of your order when you pick it up, to up the ante.
Smith takes great care to foster relationships with like-minded producers and this will be celebrated with a breakfast party vibe each Saturday – the market will feature Prodjuice Cold Pressed Juices, Brooklyn Boy Bagels and Cornersmith pickles and preserves. For the first week there will be a vintage market downstairs too.
For the pop-up market, you don’t need to pre-order, but get in early to get what you want. And, as usual, regular, pre-ordered produce collections will be available for pick up from Darlo Bar, and Saturday morning deliveries (Eastern suburbs and Inner West) are still on.
The Local Harvest Collective at Darlo Bar 306 Liverpool Street, Sydney Saturdays from 9.30am until 5pm (unless sold out sooner) from March 15–May 3.
