Moving Feast Kitchen opens at the Purpose Precinct

Moving Feast Kitchen opens at the Purpose Precinct

The doors are open and the stoves are on at the new Moving Feast Kitchen, located in the Purpose Precinct at the Queen Victoria Market.

The aim of the kitchen is to divert overripe and unsold produce from fruit and veg stallholders at the market, and turn them into delicious long-shelf life products, which will then be sold in the Moving Feast Pantry (opening at the Queen Victoria Market in April).

Eco-Chef, Chris Locke, is already off to a flying start, creating a pantry of dried goods from everything from onion and garlic skins, to chillies and more. A series of circular innovation workshops will also be held over the coming months.

Chris is a Chef and Sustainable Food Systems Advocate, who has honed his culinary skills worldwide and now proudly calls Melbourne home. With a deep-seated commitment to sustainability, Chris channels his expertise and passion into various culinary endeavours.  

This commercial kitchen space, is also available for hire by social enterprises and social entrepreneurs with products to test and refine. 

Moving Feast Victoria is a network of social enterprises collaborating for a connected, fair and regenerative Victorian food system, and the kitchen will be supporting fellow food social enterprises to start up and scale up. 

You can find the kitchen at the Purpose Precinct, in the F sheds, at the Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne. It is open between 9am-3pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
