Orange has long had a thriving food and wine industry. This page collates some of my favourite local suppliers and producers.

Grocer and Co, McNamara St, Orange

This is a friendly, unpretentious cafe, where you can get amazing, real food. The coffee is awesome, and the food is made with seasonal, local produce. There is an array of freshly made sweet goodies, all made with natural, unprocessed sweeteners, unrefined grains, nut flours and superfoods – but you’d be hard pressed to taste the difference. So much goodness is oozing out of this shop and it really optimises the slogan “Just eat real food”. Guy and Ellie are passionate about providing friendly, old fashioned service, and there’s the added bonus of being able to buy seasonal organic, local produce.

Agrestic Grocer, 426 Molong Rd, Orange

Another local food store and cafe supplying food sourced within a 100 mile radius. Much of the produce is organic and ethically produced, and there is a wide variety of fruit, vegetables, olive oil and dressings, milk, locally made cheeses, nuts, coffee and tea, preserves, kombucha, and local wine, beer and spirits. The cafe is open from 8:30-3:30pm (kitchen closes at 3pm) and local produce dominates the menu. Again, this cafe is about real, nourishing food.
