Seasonal & Local
Clinton knows many of the growers personally. There is a trust and mutual respect that we are told is rare in business today. This means that he can access fresh seasonal produce as it becomes available.
The shop Organically Grown is located in an area of Adelaide that was home to a large number of migrants from European countries. These residents brought their customs with them and soon had thriving backyard vegetable plots and trees overloaded with delicious fruit. All seasonal.
Over the course of a number of years, as Clinton and his shop have woven themselves into the fabric of the local community, they have sold their excess produce to Clinton.
Apricots! Must be summer, one of the stone fruits that drips with juice and goodness. What else could signify summer? Cherries perhaps.
So much variation. Autumn/Winter citrus. Oranges and mandarins. Fruit and vegetable available or not available as we move through a year and then some local produce available year round. Cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and kale for example. Add tomato to that list.
Of course some produce is not grown locally. Bananas for example. Coming from Australis’s tropical environment they are available year round.
