During one of my three recent reviews inside Clemton Park Shopping Village I noticed Natural Fresh Grocer. This is the third outlet for this chain, which also has stores in Burwood Westfield and Rhodes Waterside.
While I generally prefer to support small, independent grocers outside of shopping centres, there was something intriguing about this Asian supermarket meets green grocer. In addition to an extensive range of pan-Asian products, it has an extensive deli section with a lot of emphasis on Greek products.
The fruit and vegetables are nicely displayed, and seem high quality, especially when compared with those on offer close by, in the complex's Coles supermarket.
At the exit to the store you'll also find a quirky Asian bakery, giving you a Breadtop-style range of pork floss, shallot and hot dog buns, and the super-creamy, airy sponges Asian-Australian audiences often show preference for.
It all adds up to an interesting shopping experience that's worth a gander if you're in the neighbourhood dining at Anatolia, Koh Chang or Hombre Mexican Cantina.
