Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

I'm sure I'm not the only one in town, who is forever on the look-out for great quality fruit and vegetables and, of course…..at a reasonable price!

I think I've just found my new best friend - Erbachers Fruit and Vegetables, a family-owned business that's been operating on the Sunshine Coast since 1965. Erbachers Fruit and Veg are locally owned and operated by the second and third generation of Erbachers and their families. This store was initially founded by Eric and Thelma Erbacher and besides employing their own extended family, employ local staff, many of whom have worked at Erbachers for nearly twenty years.

You're not limited to just buying your fruit and veg for the week because JD's Quality Seafoods is also to be found on the same grounds as Erbachers. JD's are open from Thursday to Sunday 10.00am to 4.00pm - we bought our weekly fish (salmon) and the freshness and quality of the seafood was second to none, but I was a tad disappointed to find that the prices were slightly on the high side.

Looking for a caffeine fix, whilst shopping? No problem, Solace Coffee Van (you might remember them as being one of my dog-friendly coffee hang-outs) is also on the premises. Solace Coffee's opening hours are Monday to Sunday from 6.30am to 2.00pm and they serve everything from coffee to cookies and muffins - a great spot to stop off, sit under the trees and enjoy your drink of choice.

Theoretically, you're getting three outlets for one stop - how good is that?

The next time - which will more than likely be in the next week or so - that you're looking for some high quality fresh fruit and vegetables, some fresh seafood or perhaps just a four-pawed friendly coffee outlet, get on down to Erbachers Fruit and Veg in Diddillibah - you'd be dilly not to.

PS There's plenty of car parking available too!
