Buy Local… We Do!
It just makes sense to obey the 200km radius rule and buy local – it reduces our (and your) carbon footprint, supports the local economy and ensures produce is market fresh when you walk in the door.
We’ve supported some of the region’s largest local brands and companies from their early start-up days. We were the first New Zealand supermarket to offer you the, now world-famous, Pic’s Peanut Butter, and we brought you Proper Crisps before these perfect potato chips graced the shelves of any other stores.
Feed your family with local-love… And know that you’re helping a local producer feed their family too!
Nelson’s high sunshine hours mean our growers can grow! In fact, it’s the reason so many Italian settlers made Nelson their home and began market gardening in The Wood in the early 1900s. We still stock many of the heirloom, locally grown tomatoes today.
We’re so fortunate that beautiful Nelson sits nestled in the the eastern shores of Tasman Bay. Fishing is part of the Nelson lifestyle, but on the days you can’t get out on the water, rest assured, we’ll always have locally sourced fish for your supper.
We’re fortunate to be surrounded with hardworking locals who turn out beautiful food and beverages. With Fresh Choice you can sip and snack on Nelson’s goodness all day long. From your first coffee in the morning, right through to your TV snack of Proper Crisps in the evening.
Our chilled and frozen aisles are chock-a-block full of really ‘cool’ foods sourced within 200km. You’ll find the makings of a perfect local tasting platter in our chilled section or delve into the freezer for iced treats and more. Eating local is a fantastic way to start your day!
Whether you’re looking for some bacon for your bap, some salami for your platter or venison to throw on the grill. We have a selection of local meat products that will make your mouth water!
We’re blessed with a bountiful harvest of wine suppliers and many happy hop-meisters in Nelson and Marlborough. We’ve listed just a few of our top sellers. Visit us in-store to view the entire range, you’ll definitely find a reason to celebrate!
