About Scicluna’s Real Food Merchants

The Scicluna Family have been in the fresh fruit & vegetable industry for as long as they can remember. Over 50 years ago, George Scicluna opened a store in Mentone and had his brother Joe Scicluna by his side for the duration of the store's existance. They quickly developed a loyal following, through their superb quality of fresh fruit and vegetables and friendly service.

George's son, Chris Scicluna, their loyal apprentice and Saturday spruiker, opened his first store in Sorrento back in 1993. There was not a single fruit & veg store that looked anything like this new style of high-end green grocer. After 10 years of success in Sorrento, he returned to his roots in Mentone and opened up his second fresh produce store.

Opening the doors to this spectacular looking food store in 2003, the people of Mentone and surrounding areas were very supportive in the Scicluna Family once again providing the area with the best in fruit and vegetables. Uncle Joe Scicluna works at Scicluna's Mentone to this day.

In 2010 Scicluna's opened up their third store, this time in the Stocklands Shopping Centre in Glen Iris/Hawthorn East. All three locations continue to provide what people come for - freshness, quality and something a little bit different.
