The retail premises that kicked off the CTS story about Buckley Street is, it turns out, destined for a more interesting and welcome future than the “convenience store” mentioned on the planning application led us to believe.
Thanks to CTS reader Zoe for providing this link to the website/magazine Food Service News.
According to the story, the Buckley Street shop is to become a Melbourne sibling for the Marrickville establishment known as Cornersmith.
Like the Sydney store/cafe, Rhubarb Wholefoods will be a “wholefoods store and vegetarian cafe”.
And an important element of the way Rhubarb operates will involve customers swapping their homegrown vegetables, fruit and more for cafe products.
A bartering business for the west – how cool is that?
