We hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season. The Fraberts family certainly did as we welcomed its newest member. Emily Jacquelyn Roberts was born on December 13 and she kept us very busy throughout Christmas. Charlotte is thrilled with her new little sister!

$800 Raised for Centre Wellington Food Bank

Thanks to our generous customers for raising nearly $400 for the Centre Wellington Food Bank, up 33% from last year. Fraberts will match this amount and top it up to $800. This will provide fresh bananas, apples, oranges and other fresh fruit and vegetables for Food Bank clients, who have doubled in number over the past year as a result of the economic downturn.

Fraberts to Carry Scottish and British Treats – Just in Time for Robbie Burns!

Fraberts is very sad to see our neighbours, the Wee Scottish Shop, closing their doors. The Fergus Marketplace and all of Fergus will really miss them. We wish Angie and Jamie all the best in their future endeavours.

The Wee Scottish Shop sold quality Scottish and other British foods and Fraberts will try to fill that void by carrying some of their most popular items. Everything you need for your Robbie Burns celebrations (January 25) will be here (e.g. haggis). Well, except for the scotch….


We are looking for your favourite recipe(s)! Maybe it’s a family favourite, a cultural tradition, or simply something you are proud of. Every month we will pick 1 or 2 favourites and feature them in the store. So start digging out those recipes and bring them into Chef Derek or email them to droberts@frabertsfreshfood.com (make sure you include your name and phone number). Monthly winners will receive a $25 gift certificate….and bragging rights, of course!
