Favourite local supermarket?

By Hammo 10 August 2008 27

Recently, I discovered two good local supermarkets – IGA Chapman, and Friendly Grocer Campbell.

It inspired me to ask, what’s your favourite community supermarket?

What’s Your opinion?

The guys who own the Campbell shop now also own the Chifley one. Which is darn good, because the product range has updated a bit. They now have fair trade, organic chocolate, coffee and tea. The bakery is still running, they employ the baker who used to own the shop (I think he sold it so he could work less now that he’s getting older). Also means they’ve joined the Friendly Grocer and Local Liquor chains, which means regular specials.

For Southsiders, the farmers market at CIT Woden on Sunday mornings is good for fruit, veg, eggs and the odd sausage. Not only is it good quality it is a hell of a sight cheaper than most fresh produce at supermarkets (Fuji Apples $2.50/kilo).

But for day-to-day convenience I have no major problems with Woolies Erindale.

wtf is a “community supermarket”?

it’s a lo-cal shop, for lo-cal people… doesn’t anyone watch league of gentlemen?? bang! 😉

‘locivore’ – is this a new word? can i have it??

and yup, on that, i thoroughly second choku baijo’s rap from ruff – excellent produce, very good price with lots of the stuff as close to organic as you’ll get without them trying it on. and the king brown mushrooms are the business. sat’dy ritual and as often an evening one too – they cleverly open 3 – 8pm… and they’s nice.

Also ,if you are a committed locivore and like to buy local produce but can’t wait for the EPIC markets on Saturday, check out the local producer’s shop at North Lyneham shops. Great produce at cheap prices, and the money goes to the farmers, not middle men.

Hackett IGA is also great – friendly staff, they’ll order items for you, and competitively priced with other IGAs. They also put a lot of things that I regularly buy, like cordial and fruit juice, on special (cheaper than Woolies) quite often. Good job Hackett IGA, I say!

Hill Street Grocer. Internet delivery, fresh, local produce, shut the gate.

Slightly off-topic, but the supermarket at Duffy has a real frontier feel to it. Last time I was there I expected to see Burke and Wills pop in for a bottle of water.

Chapman IGA is pretty good.
