Feature Stockist – Tugun Market Co

This month we interviewed Brendon, team leader at Tugun Market & Co, the freshest market on the Gold Coast. Located in Tugun, this venue has been part of the neighbourhood for 20 years but was recently refurbished in April 2022.

Tugun MarketCo offers a broad selection of gourmet and specialty items as well as fresh fruit & vegetables with a strong focus on locally sourced products. You will also find an in-house butcher and café, to make your shopping experience unique and complete.


They are a family-owned business like ours, and we love seeing our products stored in their fabulous establishment.


Diego’s – How do you pick the products you are going to sell in-store?


TMC- We have a wonderful team who works closely with our suppliers. Stacy and I are the team leaders, and we are always on the hunt for new ideas, to keep it fresh and interesting as well as to supply our shoppers with everyday essentials.


Diego’s – What is your mission and vision for Tugun and Co?

TMC – Our vision is to be different to the large supermarkets and to deliver a unique and enjoyable experience to food shopping. We want to be a destination store for local produce and products, to health foods and gourmet foods. We still have our basic range of grocery lines and always will.


Diego’s – Are you and the TMC foodies?


TMC – Yes, we sure are, we all absolutely love the way food can often bring family and friends together and be such a big part of precious memories and moments shared together, as well as being super important to our overall health and well-being. We love trying new products and incorporating them into our lives.


Diego’s What do you think about the Gold Coast community? And how do you support it?


TMC -We are so proud to be a part of the GC Community and love getting involved in local events and community projects like the 

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital where we supply fresh fruit & veggies weekly for all the recovering wildlife, as well as Swell Sculpture Festival whom we are partnering with this year with a pop-up art installation.



Diego’s Favourite thing to do locally?


TMC – The beach of course and the hinterland, we love going for bush walks and finding new rock pools and swimming spots. The local dining is also amazing, so many great options these days. Our local favs are Tommy’s Italian, Siblings, Balboa Italian, Rick Shores & Clay Cantina in Cooly for a great Traditional Mexican Taco.


Diego’s – What is your favourite Diego’s product?


TM&C – We do well with the sourdough, gluten-free and lower-carb wraps as our customers love having these alternatives available.


If you haven’t visited TMC yet, and need to stock up on Diego’s products, you might want to save the date for Saturday the 17th of September, for “family fun day”!
