About CERES Grocery, Bakery and Cafe

The CERES Grocery, Bakery, and Cafe is a vibrant space at the centre of CERES Farm community food system. The Grocery supports locally grown organic growers and producers while providing a hub for community to come together to form a positive food culture. The Grocery plays a key part in a local food network sourcing food grown either in CERES’ own inner city market gardens or from Victorian farmers before buying from interstate and trades 7 days a week, 9am to 5pm. The Grocery provides bulk whole foods, dairy products, household items, and body products. Alongside the Grocery, the Café operates every day 9 am – 3:30 pm and the Organic Sourdough Bakery bakes fresh bread and pastries 7 days a week. 

CERES Grocery is not just a place for weekly shopping and trade, it is a place for people to come together and create a community surrounding the food that sustains us and is a key social enterprise contributing financially to other non-income generating areas of CERES.
