Variety and value: the secret spice of the Saturday Fresh Market

Regardless of how long they have been attending our market, Saturday Fresh Market customers know that the variety and value available at the Saturday Fresh Market is worth the early morning shopping trip.

Amy (Moorooka) and Julie (Fairfield).

Julie and her daughter, Amy, have spent the last four years exploring the markets in Brisbane, but the Saturday Fresh Market has come out victorious.

“Since the move to the new venue we don’t bother going anywhere else. The premium parking is fantastic, and the new venue is a lot more user friendly, especially with a trolley,” they said.

“The fresh produce is so much better than the supermarket for quality and price. Hai’s Harvest is our favourite stall, they always have everything we need.”

Dave and Naomi (Richlands).

Dave and Naomi have also been attending the market for the last four years, and it is now entrenched in their weekly routine.

“It’s a good way to start the weekend – we look forward to it and get disappointed if we miss it,” they said.

“We love the atmosphere, and everything is fresh and good value. We also love that the undercover venue is not affected by weather and there is more space now.”

Alison (Brookfield).

Alison is new to the Saturday Fresh Market, but that hasn’t stopped her from making it a weekly ritual.

“I only started coming at the end of last year, but now I do my shop here every Saturday. It’s fantastic and the parking is so easy,” she said.

Sarah and Logan (Holland Park West).

“The value is amazing, and the quality is so much better than the big supermarkets. You can get all your fruit and veg, meat and bakery items in one place.”

For Sarah, the Saturday Fresh Market makes a great outing with her son, Logan.

“Logan loves the donuts, sampling the fruit and the brownies. I love the prices and quality,” she said.

“The Health Bazaar spice stall is our favourite! They always have stuff that you can’t find elsewhere.”

Alek (Salisbury).

For the last 15 years, Alek has made sure to arrive at the Saturday Fresh Market at 6am sharp for his market goodies.

“There’s such great variety here and the produce is so fresh. We always go to Hai’s Harvest and finish at Dan’s Produce for our tomatoes,” he said.

“We always try to do something different so this week we are doing some pickling, which is great for winter. I make a killer beet and mint pickle!”
