Fruit and Veg Retailers Staying Open And Delivering Healthy Options to South Australians
Amidst the latest COVID restrictions and stock sell outs in major supermarkets, independent fruit and vegetable stores in South Australia are staying open as well as offering delivery and click and collect services to assist those in isolation.
As South Australia enters the lock down period, independent fruit and veg stores will continue to stock their shelves daily with fresh, locally-sourced, produce from the South Australian Produce Market and continue to trade as an essential food service.
As many look for healthy options to keep their immune system boosted, local fresh produce is available and ready to be delivered or pre-ordered for collection as retailers assist in minimising social contact.
Pick a Local Pick SA! has compiled a list of independent fruit and vegetable retailers that are offering a range of home delivery or call and collect services. And for those heading out for their allowed daily visit to shop for food that want to avoid the large supermarkets, independent fruit and veg stores are staying open.
Pick a Local, Pick SA! Campaign Manager Penny Reidy said: “We need to be supporting local independent business at this time. These independent retailers are South Australian families supporting South Australian growers and wholesalers.”
“As well as a great range of fresh fruit and vegetables many independent stores also stock a range of locally sourced pastas, pasta sauces and pre-made meals and packs.”
Shoppers should look for the Pick a Local Pick SA! signage in local fruit and vegetable stores to know they are supporting South Australian growers, wholesalers and retailers.
*The following stores offer delivery or call and collect options – check with individual stores for further details.

About Pick A Local, Pick SA!
Pick a Local, Pick SA is a South Australian based campaign run by Market Fresh SA. The South Australian Produce Market and SA Chamber of Fruit and Vegetables Industries have come together to form Market Fresh to highlight the important role the independent retail sector play in the local horticulture industry. The independent retail sector consists of local business owned by local South Australian families who source the bulk of their produce from local growers.
The Pick a Local, Pick SA campaign reminds customers that when they see this logo, they can feel assured that they are not only buying fresh produce that was handpicked this morning from growers and wholesalers at the South Australian Produce Market. They are also supporting local businesses, local families, local growers, local communities, local jobs, the local industry and the local economy.
The campaign consists of extensive print and social media advertising, regular competitions and in-store promotional activities.
As of 2018, Pick A Local, Pick SA! is working with national brand ‘A Better Choice’ to extend the reach of the campaign to truly support all of Australia.
