Welcome to the Good Living issue of Village Life magazine! We’ve dedicated this edition to all the amazing food, homewares and culinary talents at The Village that helps us live our lives to a stylish and yummy max.

We were on location for our stunning lifestyle shoot (pages 6-11) creating inspiring tablescapes to grace your home with some delicious props from Cliq Café, Café Milligram, Deli Hub and more.

Plus, our resident fashionistas from Cable Melbourne, Red Pearl and Rodd & Gunn give some styling tips and showcase the season’s hottest trends (pages 12-17).

Style

We meet the faces behind our Market Room foodie revolution (page 19-20), as well as some of the newest additions to The Village family, The Source Bulk Foods, Mobile Experts and Kingsmen Hair (page 20-21).

Locals

Is your stomach rumbling? It will be after drooling over our family feast. Get ready to chop, bake and roast your way to on-trend dinners that look as good as they taste (page 24-29).

And don’t forget about our incredible gourmet getaways (page 32) from Helloworld and St Ives Travel. These holidays are designed to dive deep into cultural cuisine with hands-on experiences and authentic local dishes.

The leaves may be changing, but we’re proud to report that The Village is going green. Our community of retailers is championing some fantastic eco-friendly initiatives, helping us all reduce our carbon footprint. Read their stories and pick up a few tricks and tips on how to achieve a zero-waste lifestyle (page 34-35).
