Description

The Community Grocer Carlton operates every Friday morning at the public housing estate at Lygon Street, selling over 70 types of fruit and vegetables at affordable prices.

The Community Grocer (TCG) believes a vibrant market place is a powerful setting for social and environmental change. Our vision is for a just food system that ensures fruit and vegetables are accessible to everyone in the community. We are a social enterprise, running weekly affordable fresh food markets to support healthy connected communities. We address the physical, economic, and social barriers to fresh food access by holding markets in convenient locations in low-income areas; stocking culturally appropriate produce; and creating a weekly gathering space that promotes community connections and celebrates diversity.
