A PIONEERING market garden family has opened a farm-direct shop in Neerabup.
Natasha Trandos said she, Holly and Corinna staffed the Trandos Road shop, which opened in November.
“Our family has been farming in Wanneroo for 80 years since emigrating from Greece,” she said.
“We are now introducing the fourth generation into the business – all members of our family are involved in the farms.
“We opened wanting to give people a chance to come to a farm, meet and support their local farmer and see where their food is grown.
“We sell our truss and cocktail truss tomatoes, Lebanese and continental cucumbers all of which are produced in glasshouses.
“Also we sell our little sweet peppers and eggplant all year around.
“Our extended family help and support as well as selling their produce – they are WA Corn Growers and it is their corn beans and Brussels sprouts we sell.”
The Trandos Tomatoes store, which is open on Fridays from 11am to 2pm and Saturdays from 9am to 12.30pm, also sells seasonal produce such as spring onion, celery, broccoli, strawberries and watermelon.
They offer free delivery to local suburbs as well.
