Harking back to an era when ‘organic food’ was simply called ‘food’ and local produce was the norm, Wayne Farrell’s grocery store Aunt Maggie’s is both an homage to his aunt and a delightful one-stop shop for the health and environmentally conscious.
With an outlet in Balaclava, Fitzroy, Malvern and now Brunswick, the store is packed with high-quality products – fresh fruit and veg sit beside an abundance of brown rice, raw cereals and gourmet spreads. Whilst Maggie’s fridges chill everything from organic beer and wine, unrefined meat and dairy-free ice cream. Not limited to food, Aunt Maggie’s also stocks natural shampoos and conditioners, moisturisers and chemical-free cleaning products. Each day fresh juices are made on site, with daily soup specials, fresh salads and wraps available to eat-in or take away.
For the health conscious, the dietary restricted or the lovers of good quality produce – Aunt Maggie’s is looking out for you and your pantry.
