WITH all the delicious fruit and vegetables you can think of and wonderfully helpful and friendly staff, you have to be at Buderim Fruit and Veg.

The business was named the Brisbane Produce Market Retailer of the Month for December, an award recognising excellence in customer service.

Despite the majority of the business revolving around wholesale, owners Murray and Simon Norton, a father and son duo, are also excelling on the retail side.

"Our business has always been more of an ethical than a financial thing," Simon said.

"The key is having a loyal customer base that knows its fruit and veg well.

"It's not unusual for customers to bring in recipes and ask for specific ingredients, and if it's not in the shop, we'll get it in for them.

"We also have a strong philosophy for providing only the freshest healthy products for our customers, so we ensure no high calorie processed products are available for purchase in our store."

Murray and Simon opened the store six years ago as a complementary addition to their wholesale business next door.

Winners of the Brisbane Produce Market Retailer of the Month award receive $2000 prize money to use for store promotions.
