Where the Locals Shop
This Queenstown supermarket is where the locals shop. Jess & Jono Ettema took the reigns in October 2022 and are proud of the standards & experience we offer in store, not to mention the buzz the store has got going on!
Natural progression saw them travelling the world many moons ago and gaining experience in London, Whole Foods Market stores & Jess in Private health care. Jono and Jess’s passion has always been great tasting quality food. From fruit & vegetables, fresh meats sourced locally and the real WOW factor and experience when shopping. Mixed with an extensive range of local and international dry lines, a full service deli and popular buzzing café- this is one of New Zealand’s best loved food stores you don’t want to miss when visiting Queenstown.
