Fredericks Fine Grocer

About Fredericks Fine Grocer

In 1857, Frederick Porritt occupied 231 Bridge from a shop and a tent. He was a fruiterer.  We suspect he grew fruit and vegetables and sold them from his site.  How things have changed. The site was then used by the National Bank of Australasia. The façade is protected by Heritage Victoria. In 2014 it’s back to the future and the site will be returned to a fine grocer, supporting Australian only products in an environmentally friendly store.  (See our environment statement).
Thank you, Mr Frederick Porritt. Your name has been honoured in Bridge Road some 157 years since you occupied the site.
Fredericks Richmond.
