Harris Farm Markets has come full circle in Clayfield. Some 30 years after opening the fruits and vegetable shop, the family-owned company is back in operation at its original Sandgate Road site and will open doors on Wednesday, 16 Dec 2020, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The shop is still undergoing a rebuild and redesign of the former Clayfield Markets. Carlo and Susan Lorenti, who owned and managed the old site, will stay on and maintain the quality of the goods and services at Harris Farm Markets.

“We’ve proudly served the Clayfield community for over 30 years and whilst one door closes on Monday 7th December a new door opens,” the Lorentis said. “We can’t wait to be welcoming you back to our brand spanking new store. Where we hope to bring a little bit of extra joy into your shopping experience with us.”

“We are incredibly excited to be opening at this site because Harris Farm used to own it 30 years ago before selling it to Carlo and Susan. It’s a full-circle story and we are thrilled that Carlo and Susan are staying on as our managers at Clayfield, along with as many staff as possible,” Harris Farm Markets co-CEO Tristan Harris said. 

“The Clayfield store will be home to the best in fruit and vegetables, including an organic produce section and a leaderboard of Queensland strawberries and mangoes, as well as a gourmet grocery section of boutique local products, an extensive deli and offering of more than 200 cheeses, a bakery section with the best bread from sourdough to brioche, and a premium meat selection.”

“It will be a flavour-filled showcase of Queensland and Australian produce under one roof, and we can’t wait to open here in a city that values their fresh fruit, vegetables and food stories so highly. Queensland is famed for the richness and range of produce grown across the state, and to be able to work with so many wonderful producers is one of our dreams.”

Harris Farm Markets Clayfield will be one of two flagship stores for Queensland. The other shop is going to open in West End in May 2021. 

With over 300 growers, producers and creators in Queensland alone, the Harris Farm Markets has championed the value and freshness of truly seasonal products. This company has delivered goodness for over 40 years, with the firm belief that Australian families should have access to the freshest and best available fruit and vegetables.

Harris Farm Markets will also feature an IMPERFECT PICKS corner. 

“This is the seasonal produce that might not look perfect on the outside but are as perfect as ever on the inside. IMPERFECT PICKS helps reduce the astonishing statistic that *25 percent of farmers’ crops currently never leave the farm gate simply because they may not look ‘normal’, and do not meet the visual specifications of some consumers and supermarkets. This means every time someone buys an IMPERFECT PICK, they are helping us take more of our farmer’s crops, helping to reduce food wastage and most importantly, saving 50 percent at the checkout,” Mr Harris said.
