Fruit and Veg Box Recommendations

By postmanpat - 23 August 2011 10

It has been a couple of weeks since my Hawley’s fruit box stopped arriving and I am still in denial. 

Unfortunately the business has been sold to Aussie Farmer’s Direct, who don’t deliver to my part of Canberra. 

I really enjoyed the quality and can’t bear to go back to supermarket fruit. 

Does anyone know of any reasonably priced fruit and vege box delivers that deliver to South Canberra? 

Any former Hawley’s customers stumbled across a company offering something similar?

What’s Your opinion?

I would disagree 100%.

You could try ‘Market Fresh To You’. We are found at http://www.mfty.net.au and offer a wide variety of produce for your family, regardless of the size. We have mixed boxes available and allow you to make changes to suit your needs. We are only a 3 person family business and take a great deal of pride in our business and the satisfaction of our customers.
We select our produce from local growers and the Sydney Markets daily and only purchase what we need for the days deliveries so we are not storing any produce even over night. It is as fresh as it gets!
We will gladly replace or refund anything we deliver to you that does not meet your very strict standards if this is required.
Currently, as a result of a more recent article we have had a lot of traffic from this website to our own we are going to run a discount for the members of this online community. Enter the code RIOTACT into the discount voucher area in the checkout process and you will receive a 10% discount on your fresh produce! that is a 10% discount for simply being a member of this little community!
Thanks for showing us your support.

This is the second fruit and vegetable reference today!

Even if this is zombie fruit, I find it somewhat unsettling. I come to this site for vicarious burgers.

Not sure if http://www.regionalfruit.com.au does supply fuit and veg to everyone in Canberra.
They did supply in one of the last offices i worked at and would surely recommend the stuff.

Worth giving them a call.

My 2 cents.

And if you’d like a cup of Jindebah coffee made for you, try Copper Kettle in Queanbeyan, up the arcade next to TAB. You’ll get a great feed there at a reasonable price, and “mine host” is a very friendly, gregarious fellow!

I live 5 minutes from the roastery, I wouldn’t go out to Queenbeyan unless maybe they laced the coffee with crack.

http://www.vegiestoyourdoor.com.au – Deliver to Canberra, south, north, Jerra, QBN and Yass.

Quality is brilliant. They pick up fresh from the Sydney markets daily and guarantee the fruit and veg for 2 weeks. You can order online, don’t have to be home to accept (you can hire a cooler box for $1).

They also have other items, including bakers delight bread and rolls. The delivery fee is a flat $5.50 and you only need to order $30 worth of food.

I highly recommend them. My only complaint is, I didn’t find them sooner!

someone we know ordered with Aussie Farmers and were disappointed by the quality, compared to Hawey’s.

I’m upset that Hawley’s has finished up too – they were fantastic.

I haven’t found anything similar and have just been going to the farmers market to get that stuff.
