Is a freelance writer and school teacher living in Adelaide. On weekends I like to get out and explore with my family. I love travelling and have lived in various cities.

If you haven't been to Gaganis Bros yet, you really are missing out on a treat. The company really is an Adelaide institution for lovers of Mediterranean foods. They have also expanded into Asian items and foods from the USA and NZ.
Whenever I have a party to cater for or a lot of baking to do, I head to Gaganis. Their herb, spice, nuts and dried fruits selection is one of the most extensive I have seen anywhere in the world. Truth be told, I generally get carried away and buy all kinds of things I never planned to buy. My family is always really happy at the food selection in our house afterwards though.
If you love antipasto I encourage you to stop by Gaganis Bros. The selection of olives, sundried tomatoes, artichokes, roast peppers, pickles, and dips is sure to leave you salivating.
Food isn't the only item you will find here. There is a wide selection of fine quality kitchen and homewares as well as disposable party items like plates, bowls, cutlery and serving trays.
Gaganis Bros 2kg Greek style yoghurt, is not only the cheapest in Adelaide - it is one of the best of this genre. It is actually Kangaroo Island yoghurt and is soooooo good with honey or on fruit, or wherever you'd use Greek yoghurt. I think it's only around $7 for the 2kg, too. I haven't bought any recently, so I stand corrected on the price, but as far as I know, the next nearest in price is the Jalna 2kg (from Coles?) at around $10. Also, Gaganis Bros stock those jars of antipastoey things like baby peppers etc. for ridiculous prices. The yoghurt alone, is worth the trip to Hindmarsh for it!
