    The Local Bunch is an online florist shop with an Eco-Friendly approach to floral design, that’s been operating out of Edwardstown since 2018. Early in the mornings we visit our local flower market and source the freshest flowers to create a floral design in our garden style each weekday. We provide same-day delivery for our daily bunches and deliver to over 200 local Adelaide suburbs. Having a single design each day helps keep our wastage low which in turn helps to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.

    Using a wide range of seasonal flowers, each with their own unique shapes and colours makes our daily bunches ideal for almost any occasion. They turn a normal day into an extra special day, especially for Mother’s Day, Valentines Day, Anniversaries, Weddings and Special Events. We have a passion for flowers and creating unique bunches every day using only the freshest and most beautiful flowers, designing them into the perfect gift.

    The business has been growing steadily over the past two years with the hopes of providing employment to locals in the near future. We also prioritise buying directly from local flower growers, this supports our local farmers and puts money back into the local community. It also reduces the environmental impact associated with imported flowers.

    We also only use 100% post-consumer recycled wrapping paper and gift tags along with twine, making all of our packaging items either reusable, recyclable or compostable and we compost all of our trimmings.

    Kytons Bakery has been a part of the South Australian community for over 80 years and has been a part of the City of Marion Council since it moved to its current premises in Edwardstown in 2003.

    Kytons has been synonymous with helping the SA community for decades – with its lamington and other fundraising drives. Community lamington drives started back in the 1980s and fundraising drives continue to be an important part of Kytons today. “Each year we help hundreds of community, school, social and sporting groups raise tens of thousands of dollars for their groups” says Sharon Sutton,...

    Kytons Bakery has been a part of the South Australian community for over 80 years and has been a part of the City of Marion Council since it moved to its current premises in Edwardstown in 2003.

    Kytons has been synonymous with helping the SA community for decades – with its lamington and other fundraising drives. Community lamington drives started back in the 1980s and fundraising drives continue to be an important part of Kytons today. “Each year we help hundreds of community, school, social and sporting groups raise tens of thousands of dollars for their groups” says Sharon Sutton, “you can’t help but feel great about that. Plus in turn everyone who buys from us is helping our local business provide jobs to our employees and spend money back in the community – it’s a win win situation”. Check out Kytons website if you have a group that could benefit from a fundraising drive – Easter is the next big fundraising season and details will be available from late January for Easter drives. Kytons hot cross buns have previously been awarded best in the country!

    Kytons Bakery is situated right behind Castle Plaza, so the retailers in the shopping centre see a lot of Kytons staff for lunch, a snack or their grocery shopping after work. Many needs for the business are met in the centre too – the post office, stationery or last minute or specialist ingredients.

    Darren and Sharon Sutton, owners of Kytons believe very strongly in giving back to the state that has been supporting their business for the last 80 years. They not only sponsor the ring tail possum and the Halloween event at the zoo each year as well as OzHarvest, Kickstart for Kids and Variety, but they also support many local smaller events.

    You’ll find Kytons products in most Foodlands and Drakes supermarkets and at their retail outlet in Edwardstown from January 24th when they reopen after their summer shut down.
