Organic fruit and vegetables


The band is playing outside, there are dozens of balloons, there's plenty of conversation and laughing around the sampling. Farmer Joe's had only just opened and it's a flurry of activity today.

Samples galore


Stocking a large range of food items you would expect at a market including, the freshest fruit and veggies, sliced small cuts and meats. They also sell specialty foods and treats such as high quality yoghurt, dips, bread, muesli, macaroons, nougat and much more. Dear to my heart, they sell a huge selection of cheeses and you can buy a prepared fruit platter for around $26. They have a lovely range of fresh flowers at good prices.

This is fun for all the family with the jovial sample attendants being very generous and persuasive. Don't do what we did and go straight from Degani's next door. Despite this, I ended up with a slice of artisan bread, and cheese and fresh pear. The kids liked sampling the meats. I wanted to try the muesli but I just couldn't eat anymore…. next time.

Doesn't it all look great?


There's an organic section and lots of bargains to be had so call in and have a look. I bet you can't leave empty handed. What you can't get here can be purchased at Aldi next door so this is now a one stop shopping strip. Open everyday 8am-7pm.

Your Comment
Can't believe the variety they have there. Makes Woolies look a little bland.

I went to Farmer Joe's a couple of weeks ago, apart from the fresh chicken specials I found it to be very expensive compared to our local green grocer and the supermarkets I was quite disappointed.
