Serving Since 1901

Our History

From humble beginnings over a century ago, Lamberts Fresh Produce has established itself as Queensland’s leader for excellence in supplying the highest quality foods to Australians. The story of Lamberts Produce begins in Brisbane where the Lambert family started a produce business in 1902. The business soon flourished, causing them to expand into outlying areas. Lamberts Produce in Townsville was opened in 1942 and endures as a market leader today.

Lamberts Fresh Produce has long been a part of Townsville. The story of its transition to the fresh produce marketplace that it is today comes from a passion for getting a better deal for both regional shoppers and produce growers and a common vision for establishing a fresh produce market that met these ideals.

It’s all about supporting local at Lamberts. Their vision to offer the farmer a better deal while also retailing farm fresh produce at competitive prices has become reality. Lamberts now proudly employs about 78 staff and sells 30-40 tonne of fresh produce and 25 tonne of meat a week, sourced from 80 regional producers.

Beautiful fresh fruit and veggies that always inspire healthy meals.Local eggs and dairy, not to mention the in-house butcher. Prices are very competitive with the big guys but the quality and service is out of this world. Lamberts is our one-stop-shop for all things fresh.

Best tasting sausages in town! Beautiful meat and the fruit and veg are great. Nice knowing our money stays local and goes to the growers that need it.
Go Lamberts!

I love that I can buy all of my fruit, veg, meat, dog and chicken food and accessories all in one place.
It is always at an affordable price and the staff are so friendly with genuinely good advice.
