You’ll find the creatively named Spuds and Plums inside Westfield Garden City Shopping Centre at Upper Mount Gravatt. Locally owned and operated, this open-plan store sells only the very freshest produce hand-picked and selected daily from the Brisbane Produce Market. Owner Lenny started his journey in the fresh produce industry at the age of nine, working his weekends in a fruit shop stacking potatoes for $2 a day. During school holidays he worked full-time, with his wages upgraded to $7 a week. Much later, after a variety of other careers, Lenny spent ten years with his own store at New Farm, before opening Spuds and Plums with his nephew Alf in 2014.
Lenny and Alf are not only business partners, but also uncle and nephew. Working in-store on a daily basis both Lenny and Alf know the fresh produce industry inside and out. This combined experience and continuing passion for fresh produce ensures that customers receive the very best quality and service every time. This family partnership is a winning combination that has customers queuing up to buy the freshest and best quality produce whenever they shop at Spuds and Plums.
