Vic Country Market is kind of like an all-in-one shop for everything you’d ever pick up on a road trip around the state (and in Melbourne itself). This online store showcases everything from beer, wine and spirits to meat, fish, smallgoods and vegetables – all coming directly from world-class Victorian farmers and producers. A couple of must-buys for you: smallgoods from Salt Kitchen Charcuterie; olive oil from Grampians Olive Co; salted caramel from Middle Park business Misty's Salted Caramel; beers from Forrest Brewing Company; and maybe even some chocolates from Echuca Chocolate Company.
We cannot wait to get back to exploring Victoria when all this is over. To drive down the Great Ocean Road. To taste the wines in Beechworth. To go to that specialty grocer with the good cheese all the way across town. But for now, while we play our part and do our best to stay home, there is a way to support businesses in regional Victoria and across metro Melbourne that are struggling with trade right now. It’s called Click for Vic, and it’s the Victorian government’s new online platform showcasing businesses from all over the state.
The idea is to inspire us Melburnians to support these businesses now so that they’ll still be around later when we’re able to visit them again. And hey, we know you like food (duh, you’re on Time Out right now) so why not spend your time supporting local growers and purchase some fresh produce via the below online shops? Food is one of the biggest motivators for regional travel (who amongst us hasn’t planned a detour around a cheese shop?) so why can’t we enjoy its delights while we’re at home? Here are some fab fresh produce deliveries you can order right now.
