The Retailer - Gilberts Fresh Southlands Gilbert’s has a philosophy of freshness which began when the owners, Gilbert Correia and John Opferkuch, were both 18 years of age. 35 years ago, they both opened their first fruit and vegetable shops in different parts of Australia - Gilbert, in Apsley Road, Willetton, Western Australia and John in Moree, New South Wales. Gilbert and John opened their first shop together in Hilton in 2005 and in 2007 moved to Southlands, Willetton, as Gilbert’s Fresh Markets. In 2011, they opened another Gilbert’s Fresh Market, this time in Midland. In 2014, Gilbert and John, partnered with Mandurah local, Steve Spalding, to open Gilbert’s Fresh Mandurah. In 2016 Michael Bryant joined Gilbert and John to open Gilbert’s Fresh Hilton – back where it all started. Today you will find a younger generation of family members involved in Gilbert’s, at the stores and in the market, continuing the passion for freshness that the stores are renowned for. Gilbert's buy their produce fresh from the markets every day and have direct relationships with a lot of local family-based growers to ensure they have the freshest produce available on a daily basis. The selection of goods at Gilbert's is next to none! There's a deli, cheese selection, flowers, fruit & veg, and groceries available! Gilbert and John are very proud of the excellent customer service that all their stores provide. The Gilbert’s team will guarantee your visit to them is a worthy one.
