applesThe Brisbane Produce Market ‘How do you like them apples’ scratch and win campaign kicked off on Saturday 17 May with participating greengrocers across South East Queensland.

Customers who shop at their participating local greengrocer in May and June could win $1,000 worth of fruit and vegetables along with instant prizes, like a bag of free apples or $5 off their next visit.

The promotion is part of the Brisbane Produce Market’s retailer program which is designed to encourage consumers to shop at their local independent greengrocers and support excellence in fresh produce retailing.

Ben Hannant, Healthy Eating Ambassador for the Brisbane Produce Markets is an advocate of the retailer program. “I shop at my local greengrocer and they provide excellent customer service and they are the experts in their field—they know what is in season, what is fresh and how to use it.

“And I really know it’s fresh because just before I started my professional football career I worked at the Brisbane Produce Market, and it’s the owners of these independent greengrocers who personally select their produce at the Markets every day.

“Shopping at your local greengrocers not only helps a family business it could also help your family budget with the chance of winning $1,000 worth of fruit and veg,” said Mr Hannant.

Consumers have a great chance of winning as each participating store is offering the major draw of $1,000 worth of fruit and vegetables as well as instant prizes.

The promotion commenced on Saturday 17 May and closes on Saturday 14 June. The major winners will be drawn and notified on Wednesday 18 June. Full terms, conditions and participating stores can be found at www.promotions.brisbanemarkets.com.au
