Harris Farm Markets opens innovative grocery store
Harris Farm Markets is continuing its expansion plans, opening an innovative grocery store at Sydney’s Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centre.
The store is designed to provide a “traditional market-style” experience along with premium produce offerings, true to its founder’s original business vision.
Harris Farm Markets was established in 1971 by David Harris whose family still owns and operates the supermarkets today.
David Harris began his business with the intention to only sell premium quality produce. By the early 1980s, there were nearly 40 Harris owned grocery stores in New South Wales and Queensland, all selling premium fruit and vegetables. However, the business went into liquidation in the early 1990s, leaving only one store in operation.
With Australians becoming increasingly interested in premium produce in the last ten years, the Harris family has been able to re-grow its grocery network. There are now 24 Harris Farm Markets across New South Wales.
Milk ‘on tap’ to be sold
Co-Chief Executive Officer of Harris Farm Markets, Tristian Harris, said the new Bondi Junction store includes ‘milk on tap’ similar to beer, along with wood-fire pizzas cooked daily, gelato, juices and other convenience options.
“The evolution of the Harris Farm shopping experience is encapsulated throughout the Westfield Bondi Junction store,” said Tristian Harris.
The store will also share the same retail space with gourmet Sydney bakery, The Bread and Butter Project, and premium Sydney Italian food service, Salt Meats Cheese.
“The new location is a gourmet food lover’s hub, a place to pick up everything you need from pasta to vegetables,” said Salt Meats Cheese Co-Director, Stefano de Blasi.
