Fruit Fantasy & Deli

Ever since Vinnies at Newmarket decided to close its deli section (which was excellent) I have been trying to find a good deli in the North-West area.

I noticed that Fruit Fantasy & Deli opened at Stafford City recently. We don't go to Stafford City very often, but decided to pop in there today to grab some lunch supplies.

Fruit Fantasy & Deli sells a good range of fresh fruit and vegetables. It also has a small deli section at the back of the shop. Although its not the biggest deli in the world, it does have a particularly good selection. There are plenty of cold meats, smallgoods, antipasto, Italian & Australian cheeses (including Kingaroy Cheese), Maggie Beer's products, Gerbino's breads, dips, gelati, spices & honey.

On this visit, we ended up buying a jar of Suzanne Quinter's locally produced preserved lemons (which are my new favourite ingredient after our visit to Morocco last year), a Kingaroy Cheese Stuart River triple cream brie, some large semi-dried roma tomatoes, Bertocchi sopressa and a basket full of fresh fruit and vegies.

It doesn't have the range that Zone Fresh or the New Farm Deli carry, but it's streets ahead of supermaket delis in the quality stakes. The prices are very reasonable too. If you live in the area, its definitely worth a visit. I'll definitely be going back.
