This year, Sprout is thrilled to announce our Dining Series events!
Throughout the year, Sprout will host a series of culinary experiences, where we will showcase a small Tasmanian Producer and their locally grown or farmed produce. We will pair that producer with a local chef and restaurant who will work their magic on the plate, to make the produce shine, and show us interesting ways to use the seasonal produce that is grown locally here in Tasmania.
Come along to our events and you will hear from the producer themselves, learn about their story, how they came to be on the land, and why they do what they do. You will also hear from the chef, who will talk about what they love about Tasmanian produce, how they use it and why supporting local producers is important to them.

Our next events are still taking shape, but here are the dates so you can lock them in your diary. There will also be events in September and November too.

Providore Place - Devonport's new producer focused indoor market
Our General Manager, Jennifer Robinson, met with Simon Hamilton and Ben Milbourne to learn more about the Devonport Living City development including the Providore Place food pavilion, due to be completed in November this year!

Providore Place is set to be a fluid indoor food pavilion where producers will be welcomed in a permanent capacity or on a seasonal basis, depending on their specific requirements. Ben envisages a real synergy between all areas of Providore Place - producers being able to come and sell their produce to consumers and to the chefs of the four restaurants that will surround the Providore Place area, and for customers to be able to enjoy food in the restaurants and then buy the raw produce from the farmers directly to take home and cook for themselves.
We are so excited about such a 'producer-centric', living local approach to this new development in Devonport and we would encourage any producer in the North West of Tasmania to contact Simon and Ben in order to find out more about this project. The finer detail is still taking shape for the Providore Place team, but they would love to talk to you.
