*BROKEN HILL VINTAGE GROCER WINTER HOURS…THURSDAYS & SATURDAYS 10AM-3PM
Welcome to Hegarty’s Hall, opposite the old Coles carpark. Pop in through the hall door at 215 Patton Street or through South Broken Hill Hotel, past the logfire & the beer garden.
This transformation of an outback, pub hall to vintage, grocer shop grew from my obsession with food during Lockdown food shortages & South Broken Hill having two food challenges. We have not had a supermarket for six years & elderly people without a driver’s licence or computer skills travel over the overpass on their mobility scooters for groceries. There are many migrant gardens out the South so fruit was falling to the ground & going to waste. I built upon my Patton Street Mini Growers Markets of the previous three years.
Our core services are
1. Schinella’s canned soups, pastas & biscuits (including Specials) so elderly people can easily access simple meals during a Covid Winter.
2. Backyard growers can sell their fruit & veg at an affordable price with all proceeds to growers.
3. Donations of cash go into the “Pay it forward” tin so customers who are a bit short at the till can still have food. Donations of produce are giveaways to our customers who are elderly or vulnerable, support our animal charities & our regular customers & helpers.
Due to your appreciated feedback we are rapidly growing our ranges which are from Broken Hill & Menindee, Australian, vegan, organic, low-packaging, unique, European & multicultural. Due to extra Covid considerations, bulk flours & spices are still being researched.
Bringing back the concept of the old, corner, grocery shop where people can go for a stroll & have a chat.
