Ever wondered what your exercise instructor eats and drinks? At the Village Store in Yarraville, wonder no more – its shelves are filled with products that local wellness professionals recommend, meaning you can move, eat and drink like the experts.
The independent gourmet supermarket is owned and operated by Daniel and Jackie Anderson. After 30 years in corporate management and retail respectively, the husband-and-wife team was looking for an independent business that they could further develop and enjoy with their children. When the Village Store popped up, it was the ideal opportunity.
Fitting right into the community atmosphere in Yarraville, the Village Store offers its customers a range of organic, sustainably sourced vegetables, nuts, fruits, seeds, wholegrains and dairy products, as well as a selection of ethically sourced meats.
Daniel and Jackie have worked hard to develop and maintain relationships with local independent
suppliers as well as creating a strong working relationship with Feeling Healthy. Feeling Healthy is a natural health hub that works to encourage health ideals and educate, empower and support its participants to be proactive in making healthy food choices.
