Harris Farm Markets to open at Canberra Airport

Canberra Airport has announced that Harris Farm Markets will be joining the Majura Park retail precinct.

The new innovative, fresh food shopping experience will be the first of its kind in Canberra, joining retail giants already located at Majura Park, including Costco, Woolworths and ALDI, making Majura Park the gourmet grocery destination for Canberrans.

“We are delighted to be partnering with Harris Farm Markets and that they have chosen Majura Park as the home of their new flagship large-format store in Canberra. It is a fantastic addition to our growing retail precinct, and they will complement our existing grocery offering,” says Canberra Airport Head of Property Richard Snow.

“Construction of the new 4500sqm purpose-built building will commence mid-2022 with Harris Farm Markets set to open in time for Christmas 2023,” he said.

Majura Park will be the 29th store for Harris Farm Markets. The signature farmers market style shopping experience will offer Canberra an abundance of fresh fruit and vegies including locally grown and organic options plus a cafe, juice bar, nut station and flower market.

The store will also be home to an extensive quality seafood and meat offering, with a cut-to-order Harris Farm butchery and dry-aged meat fridges. Along with a gourmet grocery section of boutique local products, an extensive deli and offering of more than 500 cheeses, plus a bakery section with the best breads such as sourdough and brioche.

Harris Farm Markets co-CEO Tristan Harris says he is excited about its first store in Canberra.

“The ACT and nearby Southern Tablelands of NSW is famed for a richness of food and an incredible assortment of fruit and veg that we look forward to be able to celebrate in this store working with so many wonderful growers and makers is what we thrive off. The store at Majura Park will allow us to showcase local flavours, and being purpose built, will also allow us to design and create a store of the future – to celebrate all this edible goodness, which is what we have been doing as a business for over 50 years.”

“We anticipate the market will offer upward of 120 jobs for the local ACT community. Majura Park is an exciting precinct, and we are proud to be involved.”
