Founded by Con Savvas and his brothers in 1959, Con’s Fine Food has been a beloved purveyor of gourmet goods, specialising in dips, smallgoods, and sliced meats, making it a must-stop destination.
Con Savvas, now 84, embarked on this journey with a vision to bring the rich flavours of his Greek heritage to Adelaide. His commitment to quality and a passion for providing exceptional products have made Con’s Fine Food a household name for generations of Adelaide residents.
Despite the passage of time, the business remains a family affair, with Con’s sons, Alex and Ross, carrying on the tradition. Anthony, the middle son, was also an integral part of the business for many years, reflecting the family’s dedication to their craft.
Con’s Fine Foods found its permanent home at stall number 18 when the Central Market underwent reconstruction in 1966. Through the years, Con’s Fine Food has witnessed the evolving tastes of its diverse clientele.
Bacon has maintained its position as the top-selling product throughout the years, a testament to the timeless appeal of Con’s Fine Food. The commitment to providing fresh produce and friendly service has remained unwavering, with the team knowing the importance of a personal service.
As Con’s Fine Food marks this significant milestone, the Savvas family expresses gratitude to their loyal customers and the community that has made their journey possible.
The celebration continues at stall number 18 in the Adelaide Central Market, where the legacy of quality, tradition, and friendly service lives on.
