What Does it Mean to Eat Local?
Eating locally means purposely selecting a restaurant, butcher, bakery or fruit and veg shop within the community for shopping or dining on a regular basis. Local food is fresher and tastier than food that’s spent weeks being shipped.
How Can I Eat More Locally?
Head to Birkdale Fair, where you’ll find a handful of local food shops and restaurants. Look for those that stock local products from Aussie farmers, growers and suppliers for extra credit.
