Food Lover’s Market in Langhenhoven Park has been under new management since 1 May.

This branch of the fresh produce retail is situated on the corner of Nelson Mandela Drive and Muller Road.

It is now under the management of Richard Gomes and Paulo Civente.

These joint-owners are aiming to maintain the business on the traditional values of trust, honesty and integrity.

Food Lover’s Market Langenhoven Park will celebrate the new phase with an official opening on Friday, on 25 May.

According to Gomes, the store focuses on fresh produce at reasonable prices.

Approximately 70% of the fresh produce is sourced locally – either from the Bloemfontein Fresh Produce Market or directly from the producers.

“This ensures that produce is always fresh and the biggest variety possible is available,” says Gomes.

Fresh produce bought directly from local producers include beetroot, carrots, cabbage and spinach.

The Food Lover’s Market retail sources its meat from Sparta and has its own bakery that bakes fresh products every day.

“The opening celebration is a golden opportunity for clients to have first experience of the opening celebration and can a look at the fresh produce,” says Civente.

“Be sure to taste the smoothies in store on the day.”
