    Do you know the name of the Chinese grocer or where it is specifically? I googled but there were a few.

            Mao Sheng. Is on the north side of Oaks Ave opposite Woolies. Shop runs through to a carpark in Howard Ave. The sweet potatoes are usually in a box outside the carpark entrance

              Yeh it is... Pretty unavoidable unless there's a shop with a coconut milk press.

              • Hi All

                Back home for Christmas and I am staying in Fairlfield (vic) and I popped into Organic Gertrude, 108 Station Street. They have the typical stuff, but they also have raw milk and cream. On the front it says for cosmetic purposes only and it is left to you what to do with it.I also found little sachets of coconut butter in Victoria Market, which I though would be brilliant if you were out and about.

                Just a comment, I have not been home for about 4 years, and Melbourne has always been quite foody but it seems to be bordering on obsession, I am not sure how all the cute cafes etc are making money (perhaps that explains the extortionate prices!!). I live in Italy and that is the home of food culture, but food is not constantly.available.24.hours.a.day. I think too because I am primal, I eat, I am not hungry and I am amazed that people need all these pitstops!
                Life. Be in it.

                  Try a trip to Chaddie or Doncaster and tell me what you think after seeing the pletora of cafes there! Crazy!! Melbourne has upped it in the food-stakes, especially after MasterChef, it's like everyone is a chef these days.

                    Hi Belforte, since you are in Fairfield, you may want to take a trip up the road to "Naturally on High" ( They are in High St Thornbury, just near cnr Clarendon & High Sts) They have a huge range of organics, biggest nut and dairy range I've seen and prices are great. They also stock Ruby Hills raw milk ( delicious) and harder to come by.

                        Its illegal to sell real jerky in Australia. Real jerky is uncooked just dehydrated and thus violates health laws. Hence they have to add preservatives to it.

                        If you make real home made jerky and keep it dry and sealed it will last a lot longer than a few days.

                        • There is an Asian grocery at the Fyshwick markets but I'm pretty sure they don't open this week??? Dickson might be the best place to try.

                              Did you hear back from Allowrie regarding if their products are grass fed?

                              • I'm not sure if anyone has posted this. This is the coconut oil I've been buying. Alcara Health, called frysafe. It's organic, they've refine it to remove the coconut taste. They're in Brisbane, not sure if you can buy directly off them as I don't live in Bris.

                                Aclara Health Coconut Products

                                I buy 2 x 4lt buckets from this place
                                Aclara Health Products - Certified Organic - Gourmet Superfoods

                                If you're travelling through Gympie (say to Rainbow Beach or to Tin Can Bay) and need some fresh meat, St Terrace Butchery is the place to go. You can even order nitrate free bacon before hand. It's all grass fed and local meats.
                                My Butcher in Duke St also stock some pretty darned nice beef.
                                Eumundi has an organic butcher as well.
