It all began in 1973, with a simple idea of offering exceptional produce to the South Shore community.

With our first store on Route 18 in Weymouth, the Fruit Center quickly gained many loyal customers. As the business expanded, the store in Weymouth was replaced by our two current stores in Milton (10 Bassett Street, right off of Granite Ave.) and Hingham (79 Water Street, on the corner of Route 3A).

Our passion for great food led us to expand our product offerings to include gourmet and specialty items, imported goods, prepared meals, sliced-to-order deli products featuring Boar’s Head, a creative floral department, natural and organic items and even many of the familiar brand name food items you love.

Many of our staff have been in the food business for years and are eager to share their extensive knowledge with our customers.

For the fifth year in a row, the Fruit Center has been named to the Boston Globe’s “Top Places To Work” list, ranking in the top 30 in the Medium-sized Employer category. We’re extremely proud of our talented employees and are thrilled to be recognized once again for this prestigious award.
