About Growers direct Market
“We source the freshest, best quality fruit and vegetables from all of the Christchurch markets every day”
Growers Direct was started in 1974 by Tom McClintock. Tom developed Growers Direct to be the first self-service fruit and vegetable shop in Christchurch.
At the time, a greengrocer shop was similar to a butcher shop today, where you asked the grocer for the vegetable that you want.
Self-service revolutionised the fruit and vegetable industry enabling the customer to pick and choose the fruit and vegetables that they want.
A true family business, Growers Direct Market has been owned and operated by the McClintock family for over 40 years.
