Boric – it’s a name synonymous with fresh produce, with three generations of family at the heart of West Auckland’s fruit and vegetables supply. Under the guiding hands of brothers Franco and Stefan Boric, the business includes an amazing artisan food store crammed full of a stunning array of locally sourced products and handpicked imported products.
Once an old packing shed, Franco explained that last year’s renovations saw the building double in size. It reopened in November 2014, with a large shaded deck overlooking orchards and picnic tables positioned with a bird’s eye view of the children’s playground – a mini Boric Market playhouse and old tractors to keep the kids entertained.
Back inside the extensive range of fresh fruit and vegetables is complemented with: fresh seafood, meat and poultry; a delicatessen with a huge array of local and imported cheese, salami and antipasti treats; home-grown honey and free range eggs; and a huge range of artisan products, local wines and boutique craft beers too.
Open 7 days, it’s worth the drive down the North Western motorway from Auckland’s CBD. Whether you’re looking for picnic staples, a mid-season feast, a coffee stop or simply somewhere to do you weekly shop Boric Food Market at 1404 Coatesville-Riverhead Highway, Kumeu won’t disappoint.
Happy shopping foodlovers!
