They carry items that you might not be able to find anywhere else. They have the standard oranges and apples but they also have persimmons and three different kind of pears, berries, Chinese eggplant, herbs, local to Melbourne honey a few different oils and Beauty type implements and natural soaps. Their prices are usually much lower than other places and their produce especially the fruit tends to be better tasting.
it contain many fresh fruits and vegetable with quality and prices Walmart or public could never beat along with their friendly service.they even have local raw honey made right here in melbourne and strawberries and blueberries from plant city.
They have the best prices on coffee. Also the best coffee I only wish they either opened earlier or stayed open later but they r always friendly
My very first time to visit this store, to buy seafood I bought shrimp 2 1/2 for 13.99 per pound bought the whole fish 5.70 lbs for 7.99 per pound great price. compare it to the green turtle at the beach side, but what i have experience today with one of there employee telling me i can't afford to pay my order, He was telling me wait until you see how much the price of this whole fish. I tell him price it doesn't matter, He look at me and laugh. take his apron off and hand the shrimp to the other employee, and say to him here i'm going to lunch few minute later he come back and said to me oh that fish used be 5.99 per pound but that kind of fish is hard to catch, I didn't respond to his comment, with this kind of Employee in this business you will lose a lot of new customer like me, to tell you the truth i feel like i have been discriminated against, I told the other Employee that helping me this is my very first time to come shopping here I live at the beach side. I shop at the Green Turtle for seafood gourmet store that is a lot more expensive than here never have experience employee question me if i can afford to pay for my order.
When buying grapes go through the entire plactic bag. You'll find the bag of grapes looks beautiful when it's only the top layer. They put fresh grapes on top of old ones so you think there all fresh--be carefull!!!! Next time I go there I'm inspecting everything very carefully--this is the last time I get screwed.

Went there and they made me feel like I had done something wrong really hurt my feelings!! Followed me around & stared at me!! We have been going into that place since it opened, have spent lots of money in that place!!! Will not be going back!!!
I used to really like this store and would shop there 3 or 4 times a week. I buy broccoli every time and three visits in a row it was black, yellow, and rubbery. I pointed this out to management. I leave the store without buying anything when the produce is rotting. After not visiting the store for three weeks I decided to try one last time. The broccoli was rotten to the point of slimyness. I really wish they would get it together but sadly, I don't see that happening.
I will likely never go back to Petty's or the Green Turtle again! Nothing against those two like businesses, I just have no need now that I have discovered Downtown Produce. Their prices are more than 50% lower and their produce is fresher than Farmers Markets (at Farmers Markets prices)! The wine selections are amazing, the meat is excellent and their prepared foods are delicious. I highly recommend Downtown Produce!
