Great service to deliver fresh fish
Since moving to the edge of the metropolitan area some years ago, one of the things I most missed was being able to buy fresh fish from a top seafood seller at Prahan or Camberwell markets. I thus jumped at the opportunity to order from Claringbolds Seafoods at Prahan Market through YourGrocer as soon as I discovered this possibility. Upon taking delivery of my first order last Saturday, I can confirm that the fish was as hoped: very fresh and well packed and of course delicious to cook and eat. The delivery arrived within the promised two-hou...r slot and I received a text message just before arrival confirming the delivery time. In fact, the whole ordering process was so easy and yet detailed in that it let me select, illustrated with photos, which type of fish I could order, even down to the availability of two different sizes of fillets for a particular fish variety. Being able to select the day and preferred time (chosing from several time slots) within the coming days for the delivery worked fine for me. I also felt that the prices charged for the products and the very economical delivery charge make the scheme one which I will definitely continue to use. While many of us have faced various challenges during this 'lockdown' period, being able to use a new online order and delivery service such as this is like striking 'gold'. I do hope that YourGrocer will continue this great service well into the future. It has certainly started off well.
I had my first delivery from YourGrocer today and wasn't disappointed. The food was all of a very high quality. Right from the beginning I was impressed with the philosophy of YourGrocer. I found the website extremely easy to use and appreciated being able to compare products and prices from the various providers. It is great that changes can be made to the order up until midnight the day before the delivery. Being able to have as many deliveries as you like for only $16.99 per month is excellent, with a very reasonable $60 order minimum. Very satisfied customer!
Very Happy. Highly recommend this service.
Just received my first order. Very happy. Great communication. Brilliant fresh produce. Very convenient. Them order arrived within the specified time a slot and I received a text message as the order was approaching. Very convenient and great value delivery fee. I was able to access a great range of different products from range of businesses for a single very reasonable deliver fee.
Great service with good communication, on-time delivery and excellent produce. I appreciated the ability to alter my order even as late as the day before. The only small issue was that I'd like to have been told a couple of items weren't available so I could order substitutes. Will certainly be back for more - keep up the great work!
Good quality produce would have liked a bit more notice about unavailability of items
Really good quality produce with some additional items I didn’t order. Some ordered items were unavailable and I only found out on delivery. Otherwise very happy with groceries and communication about when delivery would happen. Here is dinner prepared with the produce.
Support local business.......YES
I just received my first order, I had no idea what to expect. Well I was blown away. The service, the freshness of produce, the communication is second to none. I am sold, this is the only way I will be shopping in the future. Well done to all involved. Another happy customer.
So happy to support local businesses
Great communication from the team and awesome variety of products to choose from. Thank you to the team and the constant updates on my order through email and text messages. Extremely happy with my products and love supporting small businesses.

Christmas Day done right
If I could add 'stars' in the rating I would. Your Grocer absolutely made our Christmas Day (week) stay in Melbourne an absolute success. The ease of ordering, the reassurance we received from the staff, the delivery to our hotel and then the amazing quality of the produce. If your coming to Melbourne and want the flexibility of cooking delicious fresh produce then Your Grocer is for you. We ordered lobsters, oysters and pork belly (plus cheeses and other smaller items) and all were perfect. If I lived in Melbourne would have no hesitation on using this service as a regular event.

Fast. Local. Caring.
I love Your Grocer, they're a well run operation that is both effecient and easy-to-use while also being focused on my community and caring for me as a customer. After going with Your Grocer I won't be going back to Coles or Woolworths - it really is worlds apart.

Hassle free shopping
I've only used Your Grocer once but will be deffinetly using again. They provided a quick an easy way to shop online from multiple local and privately owned shops. The produce was excellent and the staff kept me informed at every step of the progress of my order. They delivered when they said they would and the delivery fee was very reasonable.
I’m probably never going grocery shopping again!
I was getting into the habit of just ordering takeaway because I’m too lazy to go grocery shopping. Now I can order from 3 different speciality shops at the markets and have it at my door around dinner time. They even unpacked it all for me.
Lots of small disappointments
I really want to love this service but I just can't. So many of my deliveries have missing items. Once, they told me toilet paper and bread were out of stock at an IGA – really!? It defeats the purpose if I just have to go out to the shops myself to pick up whatever they've missed. I also recently signed up (again) to give them another shot. They claim that the monthly subscription is for "free unlimited delivery" but it turns out that's only for orders over $60. I don't recall that being mentioned anywhere when I signed up for "unlimited delivery" which feels dishonest and exploitative.
too late and not there.
HI - I have been happy with YourGrocer for the past two deliveries. However - Sunday evening I had an
order for 4-6pm. Late delivery at 6.50pm, excusable because of traffic etc.
BUT Someone's Else's order in the box. Only two items of my long list.
The poor delivery guy was as dumbfounded as I as we went through my actual
list on his phone. Nope, only two items of mine.
I needed my delivery as I have a busy week.
This was unacceptable.
It is now Monday morning and I cannot access the company before 9am.
Not happy and will probably not use again. This appears to come down to the two main stores
that were involved or the co-ordination of the order for those stores.

Your Grocer makes online grocery shopping fun and convenient. I can get a weekly shop done in 10 minutes on my phone, and have access to some of the best local butchers, bakers, green grocers in Melbourne. If I ever have a issue with an order it is promptly resolved.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I have just been introduced to your grocer. I have had a look at meat prices across the various butchers and find that they are much higher than local supermarkets and significantly higher than ALDI. Im wondering if you have super specials on meat at any time as this is when I might consider buying. Is there a category for specials or an alert service such? Many thanks Andy
Welcome to YourGrocer!
The meat prices from our butchers do vary from ALDI and the big supermarkets. It depends which butcher you purchase from though, we have higher and lower end butchers to chose from. We’d be happy to recommend one to suit your needs, you can reach out on chat or call us on 1300 851 343.
We do have a 'specials' filter in our sidebar under 'Category'. Here there a number of meat specials that are marked in orange print.
All of our specials and prices are up to date on the website although I love your idea about an alert service. I'll pass this suggestion onto our team.
Thank you so much for getting in touch.
