The Community Grocer aims to improve access for people living in public and social housing to fresh, affordable food. They do this by running weekly fruit and vegetable markets across Melbourne. The Community Grocer was established in late 2014 at 510 Lygon Street Carlton, they have since expanded to Fawkner and will be launching a new site soon.
The Community Grocer Fawkner is open every Wednesday from 9.00am-12.30pm at the Community Hub at 79-83 Jukes Road Fawkner.
The Community Grocer Carlton is open every Friday from 9.30am - 12.30pm at the public housing estate at 510 Lygon Street Carlton.
