SUPPORTING LOCAL GROWERS.......

At Village Fruits we have always proudly supported local and independent growers  from Gazzola Farms in Sommervillle with lettuce, cos lettuce, celery, broccoli and asian vegetables, to DePeitro's in Baxter for kale and spring onions.

Our long standing relationships with our growers gives us the confidence that when our truck is being loaded in the melbourne markets we have the best available produce on it.

 As Steve (fresh produce buyer) recalls, "Dad not only taught me from a young age about locally sourced produce, but back then I can remember going out every wednesday to farms in his little truck loading up cabbage, carrots  and lettuce from Walkers in Langwarrin, then we would transport it back to his store in Seaford for the freshest picked stock available".

How times have changed, now we operate by buying all fresh produce in the central markets at Footscray as stock is picked, packed and transported to market on the same day, then we transport it into store and it goes out onto our shelves in around 24 hours from picking at the farms.
