When you walk into V&R Fruits you will feel like you have been instantly transported into a rustic country general store. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed, the staff are friendly and enthusiastic about helping you select quality produce.
On entry to the store you will be greeted by the scent of fresh cut flowers, continue past the flowers to the freshly baked bread stand where you will be spoilt for choice of sourdoughs, spelt and rye breads.
Further into the store children’s faces light up as they see the old rustic horse drawn cart holding ripe bananas and avocados. If you choose to continue straight you will arrive at the fresh salad and mushroom fridge, kept at the perfect temperature to retain freshness and quality even after they are taken home. Next you will be drawn to the strong aroma of fresh herbs ready to be added to tonight’s dinner for that extra zesty taste. Keep going and you will find yourself between fresh produce displays that smell fresh, and are displayed well to make them easy to shop from, these isles continue through the centre of the store holding all the fresh fruit and vegetables you can think of. Make your way to the back of the store and take more time to select a fresh filled pasta, fresh packed dips and olives, gourmet hand made tarts and icecreams for dessert. If you then continue to the left side of the store be prepared to take a little more time to scoop and bag your own beans and nuts, select some boutique jams, chutney, pasta sauces and delectable confectionery and handmade chocolates, as well as staple pantry items such as salt, flour, diced tomatoes, dried herbs and spices, dry pasta and rice, muesli and cereals… And finally don’t forget the milk and eggs!
This fine selection of fresh produce, grocery and deli lines coupled with ample room to move around the store with your trolley or shopping basket further enhanced by safe, private off street parking will ensure you have a pleasurable shopping experience that is friendly, easy, affordable, and top quality that will keep you coming back for more!
There is no where else in Geelong that can offer all this and more under one roof. Come and experience it for yourself.
