Slow Food Melbourne is part of a global network of Slow Food members. Founded in 1986 in Bra, Italy, Slow Food is a not-for-profit organisation established to counteract our modern fast food and fast life culture. Slow Food seeks to preserve local food traditions and reignite people’s interest in the food they eat – where it comes from, how it tastes and the impact of their food choices.
By joining Slow Food Melbourne, you join a global community which values pleasure and responsibility in food. A community, which understands that the best things in life are some of the simplest, and that, our heritage of food, traditions and culture need to be protected and celebrated.
Slow Food Melbourne works locally with Victorian producers to spread the Slow Food philosophy, and give the residents of Melbourne access to some of the best produce the state has to offer through the monthly Slow Food Farmer’s Market, held at the Abbotsford Covent.
