With an active farmers market and strip shopping centre, West End has more options for buying local, fresh food than most Brisbane suburbs.
Local business Food Connect collects and boxes organic farmers from across the region and distributes it through a network of city cousins to time poor people.
Local cafes and restaurants head off to Rocklea before dawn or Liz and Charlies to source the ingredients we so eagerly consume.
This local activity reduces food miles and keeps money in the community, in stark contrast to the purchasing patterns of the supermarkets. See Coles facelift story.
