I used to go to a fresh food market but they got shut down for not paying there bills lol
We shop at NQR, Coles and Tasman meats. If I could find another fresh food place that didn't cost an arm leg and a few other body parts I'd go to them but I've never been unhappy with my three but I don't just grab things off the shelf I look carefully making sure what I'm buying is worth it

I try to stick with the IGA so that I am not being dragged into the duopoly of Coles/ Woolies. I also try to get my fruit and veg at the fruit shop (they also sell lots of great nuts and seeds and stuff) and my meat at the butcher, depending on time etc.
The IGA were so fabulous when DD was tiny. I could take my pram in to the shopping centre, do what I had to do then head to the supermarket, they would mind the pram while I shopped with DD in the capsule on the trolley and then I would get parcel pick up so that i could take my time getting to the car and not have to worry about juggling DD and putting groceries in the car and putting trolley back. Made everything so much easier.

We drive 20 mins to a big food land normally..... Closer we have 3 different food lands, 2x Coles and 2 x woolworths.
we go there because they have a great range, nice fruit and veg and good specials.

I can't stand woolworths or Coles! I dont think their 'fresh' produce is fresh AT ALL. And they are overpriced.
I normally shop at Harris farm, for all my meat and fruit and veg, then I o to Aldi for milk, and any canned stuff. I also buy toothpaste, shower gel, cleaning products, eggs, etc from Aldi.
I only buy a handful of things at Coles occasionally like shampoo, conditioner, deli ham etc.

Coles mostly occasionally the markets for cheaper fruit and veg

Majority of our shop is at Aldi; topped up at either Woolies Coles or IGA. I go through the junk mail to see what's on special and I know I can't get it at Aldi plus I buy our meat at the butchers in bulk every 3 or 4 weeks.
In my area I can walk to Aldi IGA and Coles; plus I have a 2nd Aldi Coles & Woolies in the same shopping centre under 2 mins drive so lots to pick from.
