Become a Food Fossicker

We, the food lovers behind Food Fossickers, invite you to join with us in this adventure to become a fossicker yourself.

Our region is bountiful with food gold and we want to share with you the joy and satisfaction that comes from supporting our local growers and producers. Not only is the region’s ever-expanding range of products fantastic, but we know the importance of reducing food miles and fostering a sense of community and belonging that money simply can’t buy.

Our network of local heroes have joined forces and are working together to provide the best range of local food and produce sourced from around Bendigo and within the Central Victorian region. What we love most is putting local food on local plates.

Embrace the change as you join our journey. Enjoy the feeling of supporting a smart future of sustainable, fresh and above all, delicious local food fossicking.

Look out for our Food Fossickers logo throughout the Bendigo region.
