Rosebery's concentrated foodie precinct, with neighbours Archie Rose, Three Blue Ducks and Saporium.
Rosebery is fast becoming one of Sydney's most desirable neighbourhoods, largely in part to The Cannery, a huge 4500-square-metre retrofitted warehouse precinct, which houses the delicious likes of Archie Rose Distillery, Black Star Pastry, Koskela and Italian restaurant Da Mario. In 2016, however, The Cannery really took things next-level, with the opening of several game-changing additions.
Brand new providore marketplace Saporium opened in May 2016, and is designed to bring everything you need to live a wholesome, healthy life together in one place, with a greengrocer, a butcher, a baker, a coffee roaster, restaurants and a cooking school. It's been in development for some time. The first stage saw Grain Organic Bakery, Zeus Street Greek, 5th Earl and The Choc Pot open their doors, then came Vive Cooking School, organic grocer Wholefoods House, artisan butcher Kingsmore Meats and Welcome Dose Specialty Coffee. The space even launched its own weekly market. In November, Saporium also landed a sustainable bottle shop, The Drink Hive, which features refillable beer and wine stations.
With the crew from Three Blue Ducks joining the neighbourhood in June, The Cannery has been one of the buzziest areas of Sydney in 2016. And it's not done yet.
