Cheaper shopping in the Monash City


Recommended Posts

We arrived in Melbourne end of May. Started with settling and everything. We used to buy our grocereis in Coles, Safeway, Aldi but I am after a bargains... as one can imagine.

My hubby got a chance to speak to a taxi driver and got inside info that Oakleigh has a bit cheaper meat, fruits and veggies. It is predominantly Greek community so there are also nice cheeses, nuts and of course cakes.

We went there last Saturday, and I accutally enjoyed it quite a bit. There is a number of butchers, fishmongers, small market, few clothes shops and Centro.

I think prices are really a bit cheaper, and if you know how to negotiate ( and especially if you can speak Greek) you can get a good deal. ( I am not really into negotiations, so I paid what they asked for).

At the end of our Oakleigh shopping trip we chose a nice coffee place and had lots of Baklavas and the best Tiramisu in a very -very long time.

For anyone who was not in Oakleigh before, it has quite a bit of Southern European feeling ( with good and bad habits of Southern Europe).
