Bolton Street Deli, Eltham


boltonstreet8Bolton Street Deli & Liquor, in Eltham, is well on its way to being a fully-fledged local food hub.  It now stocks products from an impressive 20 local food producers in North East Melbourne.

Given that the deli does not stock vegetables, fruit or fresh meat, it has most other bases covered, from condiments and bread, through beverages and honey, to chocolate and wine.

In recognition of its unique status in the local food economy, Local Food Connect awarded the deli a certificate of recognition in April 2015, presented at Eltham Farmers’ Market by Vicki Ward. The photo shows Colin – the owner of the deli – with this certificate.

The 21 producers are:
