A couple of years ago it was difficult to find any restaurants or cafes who proudly proclaimed their support for local produce. Things have changed. This month two new Whangarei food sellers advocating for local food have opened. “Down the Road” featured in an earlier post. Around the same time “Power Plant”, a wholefood and organic store in the Civic Arcade opened.
Power Plant is a family business run by Mark and Angela Fuller and their daughter Jasmine. They are all still working other jobs and businesses while running Power Plant. The food is vegan and Mark and Angela are working hard to find local supplies of organic produce. At present they can source enough for the kitchen, but not to sell as fresh produce.
Please support food sellers who strive to sell local food.
Here is Power Plant’s Facebook Page.
