Thank you Community:

Our customer feedback and support is one of the best parts of this job. It is through the weekly support of our community that our market can not only continue but expand and flourish.  Our mutual support and enthusiasm for fresh produce, small producers, local business and local jobs is what keeps the wheels turning.  

Good, clean wholesome food should be as normal as eating itself and available to us all both now and into the future. This can only be achieved through small sustainable farming practices and small family run businesses. Food production and distribution should not be large scale and complicated, small family owned farms are not only better for our environment, it is sustainable and provides far greater food security.

Farmers Markets and small locally owned businesses are increasingly becoming a destination for many families. Dealing with people who care about their business and care about you, their customers and forming long lasting relationships are what makes community.  Make a day of it, meet up with friends or make new ones, you’ll get to know the shoppers who come week after week and may form some long lasting friendships.  The power of community can't be underestimated, anyone over 30 knows exactly what it means to have that nostalgic feeling about the local cormer store or butcher or if you're older, it might be the milkman.

"We shop here every Friday for our fresh tasty organic fruit and veg! Your produce can easily last 2 weeks in the fridge and taste just as fresh as the first day we bought it. Staff are always so friendly and helpful. Feels good to shop clean healthy food but it also feels good to support small business Thanks guys"  -  Hollie

“I swear I spend less money each week on food buying organic produce at my local market.  I would like to express, how much it means to me that I can shop my fruit and veggies from you every Friday or Saturday morning in Mudgeeraba Market Shopping Centre.  I can't remember when I converted to 100% organic, but I also can't remember when I was last at Woolworth or Coles!? But one thing I can remember and that is how much better your fruit and veggies taste. I know how Terry cares for the products he's selling.
I love your N.O.W. fresh micro business, you make sure that the fruit and veggies look good, taste good, are certified organic and I know for a fact Terry is an excellent tender so that we can buy it at the best possible price. I love that you care for the environment, the farmers and your clients. 
Thank you Terry and Caron

She explained that she would often pick up things she didn’t need. Anita is happier providing fresh and nutritious food for her family and at the same time she saves money.)

 

I have never missed a week buying my fruit and veges from Caron and Terry since they began at Mudgeeraba shopping centre. I greatly appreciate being able to buy wonderful fresh organic or farm fresh non organic food from a local business which supports and promotes local farmers. I love the quality, freshness and in season variety of their fruit and veges and the wonderful friendliness of Caron and Terry and staff.  -  Jennifer

NOW Fresh Fruit and Vegetables have re-educated me on vegetables and their shelf life. I used to be happy with a few days however since purchasing from them I now know that true "FRESH" vegetables can last a week even more. Its great to only have to buy my veggies once a week. Thanks NOW you guys ROCK!!!!!  -  Kim

Caron, Terry & staff are an important, much valued part of my life. Each week I give my budget and preferences, so there is no overspending or waste. Juan delivers, always with a smile, fresh, local, seasonal, very affordable (comparibly much cheaper) organic fruit and vege that saves me lots of precious time!
Caron & Terry are passionate about organics. They are environmentally concious and genuinely walk the walk, living holistically with mindfullness - beautiful souls!  -  Chelsea
