Woolworths Crows Nest: What’s on offer?
Fresh fruit, veg and herbs
You’ll find a wider range of Australian herbs that are fresh, vibrant and aromatic including all the favourites and contemporary varieties that can take your meals to the next level.
You might also notice that one of the sections has fruit and veg that looks a little bit different. This range is called The Odd Bunch. It’s made up of fresh produce that looks different, but is just as beautiful on the inside, healthy and nutritious and represents great value. Not only does it save you money but it helps farmers sell more too. There’s nothing odd about that.
North Shore Mums tip: Ask any of the friendly experts what’s in season, or if you’d like your fruit or veg cut and wrapped to size, just ask!

Tender meats from local farmers
There’s nothing quite like a tender cut of meat cooked to perfection. But this process doesn’t start in the kitchen, or with one of our expert butchers, it starts on the farm with dedicated local farmers.
You can judge a high quality cut of meat by its tenderness, juiciness and flavour. After all, those are the markers that make Woolworths Crows Nest range of locally grown marbled beef (including Wagyu) and grass-fed lamb popular and highly sought after.
The grass-fed beef comes from free range, pasture- fed cattle with no added hormones, which means they’re free to roam and graze on natural pastures.
You can now choose from Wagyu Beef with a marble score of MB 6-7 or MB 8-9.
Good farming practices are important to Woolworths Crows Nest, which is why all Woolworths branded fresh chicken is RSPCA Approved. This means that all our Woolworths branded chicken is ethically raised and delivered fresh to the store.
Once in store, the butchers know just how to bring out the feature flavours and textures. They can even slice your selection of fresh meat while you wait, so you go home with exactly what you were after.
North Shore Mums tip: Ask for cooking advice and techniques for your choice while you’re there, so your dish is juicy, tender and packed with flavour.
If you’re a cheese lover, you’ll feel like a kid in a candy store when you visit the new cheese room at Woolworths Crows Nest. Hand-picked from around the globe, they’ve got a selection of different types to try. If you can’t decide, why not ask the resident cheese expert Cathy, and find the perfect cheese for any occasion.
From local soft cheeses and true infused French Brie to beautifully aged Italian Parmigiano-Reggiano. And the sky’s the limit when it comes to using your favourites. Crumble blue cheese over a pear salad, grate Parmesan on to pasta and risotto dishes, or try grilling a little Haloumi at your next BBQ. As with many good things in life, a sense of adventure is key, as you never know what new favourites you’ll discover. A good starting point is exploring cheese made from different types of milk:
- Cow’s milk cheese tends to be the mildest in flavour – it’s creamy, sweet taste translates into a more subtle base flavour
- Goat’s milk turns into a slightly more grassy, sweet and tangy cheese
- Sheep’s milk has a milder grassy flavour with a tangier backbone and less buttery taste
And from there it’s time to start tasting from different regions around Australia, and then the world. Bon appétit!
