FAQs

All of The Jolly Greengrocer Fruit and Vegetable products are sourced from Sydney Markets and are subject to seasonal availability.

The prices of the individual fruit and vegetable items will fluctuate depending on Sydney Market prices.

Established in 1999, The Jolly Greengrocer is a family operated fruit and vegetable home delivery service currently operating in the areas bounded by Berowra, West Pennant Hills, Beecroft, Chatswood West, Northbridge and St Ives in Sydney, NSW Australia. We pride ourselves in providing quality fruit and vegetables delivered fresh from Sydney Markets to your door, at a competitive price.

Changes have been implemented at Sydney Markets and in our business as measures to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Some easing is now occurring but for now;

In the Markets:

  • From Monday 23 March 2020, there is no public access to the General Trading Area of Sydney Market (Wholesale Markets) – only registered Buyers are allowed access.
  • All stakeholders are temperature checked at Market entry gates.
  • The stakeholders at Sydney Markets have adopted the recommended self-protection advice for good hygiene and physical distancing. Hand sanitiser dispensers have been installed throughout the Markets.

To protect you and our staff:

  • We will knock when we arrive with your delivery and leave it in the usual spot as arranged. If you need us to carry in your box of fruit and veg, please ensure physical distancing is maintained.
  • Our drivers may decline to take your return box. If your return box is not collected when you receive your delivery, please recycle it in your cardboard recycling.
  • We will quarantine returned boxes for at least 24 hrs before they are reused.
  • We will not be taking cash or cheque payments – bank transfer or credit / debit card only.
  • If any of our team should fall ill we will adhere to the current government guidelines.

Also:

  • As always, is important to thoroughly wash all fruit and vegetables under running water before you consume them.
