Still out and about

There are few stores of more practical value than a good fruit market in a convenient location. In Minto the best fruit shop, hands down, is the Minto Fruit Orchard. It is open daily and is always well-stocked with a wide variety of quality fresh fruits and vegetables.


Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this market is the presence of a deli in the rear. This is not a common occurrence, but it makes the store an even more valuable location. They have meats and dairy, as well as a decent selection of quality antipasti; the marinated eggplant is particularly good.

In this corner of the store they also have a wide selection of specialty goods of different types and brands than you would find at chain supermarkets. This includes oils, preserves, a range of breads, pasta, lentils, spices, dried fruit and other dried goods.

If you are looking for fruit for quick use or stewing, or bargain vegetables, find reduced-priced produce both at the very front of the store and at another budget table in the vegetable section.

They have a generous selection of fresh flowers at the entrance. I was impressed by the presence of these attractive native flowers that stood out from the more common varieties.


There is a modest parking lot out the front of the store and there are usually spots available.


To put this market's value in perspective, it was awarded the 2013 Campbelltown Local Business Award's 'Business of the Year' award.

The Minto Fruit Orchard is located only a stone's throw from the Minto Marketplace, and within walking distance of the Minto Railway Station.
