Fruit + Veggie Battle 28th Nov 2020

Welcome to the Fruit + Veggie Battle

In this corner we have the underdog:  THE MARKET BOX.

This somewhat ambitious contender is jam-packed with market-fresh goodness almost too good to resist. But this newbie is looking at some stiff competition.

In the other corner we have the big end of town: THE MAJOR SUPERMARKETS AND INDEPENDENT GREENGROCER CHAINS.

Established for years and a staple part of every Aussie family’s life. Clearly the crowd favourite, but we have a feeling that’s more by habit than by choice.

How are they going to stack up when it comes to the stats?

We’re talking a hard-hitting price comparison that will settle this fierce battle once and for all.

(Quite possibly with a surprising outcome!)

But before we let the contenders battle it out, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • You can’t always comPEAR 🍐 apples with apples. The supermarket range often is more basic than the variety you see at The Market Box and independent green grocer chains
  • Major supermarkets have bigger buying power than small businesses like The Market Box and independent green grocers
  • Here at The Market Box we’re able to react quickly which means you ALWAYS receive new season produce. The major supermarket contenders, on the other hand, buy in bulk and often have previous season’s produce to sell through before they unleash the new (fresher) goodness on their customers
  • The Market Box ALWAYS delivers free straight to your doorstep. While the other contenders either charge a delivery fee or demand a considerable minimum spend from $200 upwards to waive their delivery fee
