Grocer Harris Farm Markets has opened a new flagship location on Darby Street, Newcastle. At 1200sqm, the flagship is among the biggest in the grocer’s portfolio, showcasing a large range of local products from the producers of the greater Newcastle and Hunter regions.
“Newcastle has been crying out for a grocery offering ot match their tastes, “ Harris Farm Markets co-chief executive Tristan Harris said.
“[The area] has a wealth of great artisans and we’re combining these local heroes with the best from our neighbourhoods in Sydney, all under one roof.”
The store, Harris Farm’s 21st, offers local gourmet labels Rosto Grove, Bacco’s Bakeries and Pukara Estate, new brands Kerr’s Kitchen and Adina Vineyard, as well as an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables.
The flagship also offers a premium meat offering, with a Harris Farm Meats cut-to-order butchery, and a pour-your-own milk bar, with a rotating single herd milk on tap.
During the store’s opening weeks, a barbeque cook-up will be held to raise money for John Hunter Children’s Hospital to celebrate the debut.
The store will remain plastic-bag free in line with the business’s sustainable and minimal waste philosophy.
