The latest to roll out in Adelaide is the supermarket, which will offer fresh produce from local farmers, with the hope of turning around the town’s food system.
The South Australian Government announced it would spend $15 million to create a new supermarket in South East Adelaide, which has struggled to attract customers since the closure of the Adelaide Food Summit last year.
The plan is to open the supermarket in the town of Gartner in the coming weeks.
“It’s not a supermarket in terms of the scale of what it will be, but it’s going to be a community based store, it’s a community-owned business and that’s the vision we have for it,” Chief Executive Paul Hays told ABC News.
“We’re committed to opening it as soon as possible, as soon we can.”
South East Adelaide is currently struggling to attract shoppers.
The new supermarket will be built on the site of the former East Gartners supermarket, which was demolished in 2016 to make way for the new supermarket.
The former East St Kilda supermarket was demolished to make room for the supermarket.
