About Us

Goodies & Grains Product Range

After working in Papua New Guinea on cocoa plantations for 11 years, Chris Martin decided to return to Adelaide in 1990 looking for a new project.

Having been involved in food and beverage for so long, Chris decided to start a retail business near the Central Markets. It became Goodies & Grains in 1991 and started with just a few bulk products. Slowly through customer requests the product range expanded to organic products along with conventionally grown healthy products, mostly sourced through local suppliers and growers. Today, there are over 5000 products in the store, mostly bulk products with some 40% of the range being organically grown.

We are proud of what we have done in the past 20 years but it has only been possible through the help of loyal staff and fantastic customers, some of whom have been coming from the beginning. Goodies & Grains looks forward to the next 20 years, providing customers with an extensive product range and above all a friendly, enjoyable Goodies experience!
