Shoppers in Deception Bay now have more options when shopping for fresh fruits and vegetables, as Mango King Sam Etri opens his third Skippy’s Market Fresh at Rothwell Central.
The largest fruit and vegetable store in Brisbane’s northside at 1,500 square metres, Skippy’s Market Fresh has over 30 workers who can assist customers looking for quality but affordable fresh produce.
The store officially opened its doors on Thursday, the 17th of November 2022, but they will be going all out during the Grand Opening celebrations on the 19th and 20th of November.
Customers in Deception Bay and nearby areas may have the opportunity to meet Mr Etri himself during the store’s event. Delicious, locally grown mangoes will be on offer at the door.
Mr Etri, who also runs Skippy’s Fresh Frootz in Victoria Point and Skippy’s Farmhouse in Southport, sources his products at the Brisbane Markets in Rocklea. He buys the stocks at 4:00 a.m. every day to ensure the quality of the produce and to support Aussie farmers.
“I am dedicated to supporting my local community by employing staff from the area and sourcing the best local produce where I can,” the Mango King said.
Earlier, Mr Etri made a $20,000-bid for a tray of mangoes to support charity and was crowned this year’s Brisbane Markets Mango King.
“I am looking forward to offering great quality fruit and vegetables at competitive prices to the Moreton Bay community.”
