Fratelli Fresh


7 Danks St.,
New South Wales,

Part fresh produce retailer, part dry goods warehouse, and part café, this is the store Sydney foodies flock to for superbly fresh gourmet ingredients. The business sells wholesale to the city’s finest restaurants, which means everything a discerning chef could want is here: unusual fruits and vegetables like pawpaws, baby Japanese eggplant, peeled eschalots, and wood ear mushrooms; a plethora of fresh and dried herbs; artisanal olive oils and Italian cheeses (pecorino, asiago, mascarpone); and two dozen kinds of handmade pasta. Before or after loading up with grocery bags, stop in for a bite at the on-site Café Sopra, where the delicious panini sandwiches and pasta dishes use ingredients from the shop.
