Finalists in the 2018 Sydney Markets Fresh Awards have been announced, highlighting the excellence of 60 greengrocers, florists, growers and wholesalers from across NSW and the ACT.

The Fresh Awards are run by Sydney Markets to recognise and encourage best practice in fresh produce.

The awards are judged by industry experts as well as anonymous mystery shoppers who visited the businesses over a six-month period. Nominees were judged on areas such as store appearance, customer service, produce quality, range and freshness.

Sydney Markets Fresh Awards manager Sue Dodd says the finalists have demonstrated an incredible commitment to both quality and service.

“These small businesses are at the heart of our local communities,” she says. “They offer their customers a winning formula that supermarkets are unable to match – the finest quality produce along with excellent service, a personal touch and a high level of expertise.

“The Fresh Awards act as a timely reminder to all of us about the importance of shopping local and supporting high quality small businesses that contribute so much to our communities.”

Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at The Star in Sydney on 25 July 2018. View the list of finalists here.
