The Winny Street Crop Swap, of which I attended my third one on Sunday, was started by Dean Bleasdale, aka Green Dean, of Carina Heights. Starting the event off with just a few friends sharing their produce, it’s now developing a keen and growing following.
Fruit and vegetable store Fancee Fruit and Deli at Westfield Carindale had empty shelves and closed doors last Friday.
It has ceased trading with no known plans to relocate. Today I spoke to owner David Vedelago, who ran the business with his wife Erica, about what was behind the closure.
