welcome to alps & amici
Are you a locavore? We’re a locastore!
Locavore = person interested in eating food that is locally produced & not moved long distances to the market.
Locastore = Alps & Amici! We stock for locavores.
Seriously though, one of the main reasons we embarked on the adventure that is Alps & Amici, was to further the work we had been doing at Strathlynn with local producers.
Daniel has always worked hard building relationships with local producers in order to showcase their produce to Strathlynn’s customers. The Alps & Amici store allows Daniel and the team to present local produce and producers to a much higher degree that the restaurant ever could. It also presents an opportunity for value adding while wanting to make our customers’ busy lives a little easier.
We are a truly independent store supporting local, and often smaller, producers which is not always as simple as it sounds. Because producers are often small, supply is not always regular or steady. We happily work within these constraints because we can talk directly to our customers and explain.
If we can’t source it locally (and obviously not everything grows well, or indeed at all, here) we look outside the state. If it can be grown sustainably, or even better organically, on the mainland we’ll go there. For some items we’ll look overseas. What we’d like you to know though , is that we’re always looking, tasting, trying, comparing and questioning.
Alps & Amici allows you to buy the daily essentials along with those ingredients which are harder to find.
