Orakei’s boutique retail hot spot welcomes the arrival of Farro

The new hospitality and retail market place located in Orakei has welcomed its anchor tenant, Farro Fresh, to the rejuvenated spot.

Farro is now the latest addition to the Orakei Bay Village marketplace in Remuera, opening alongside 29 other retail tenants that have boomed into the 50-year-old industrial location.

The retail development includes a mix of different design and food stores, a champagne and oyster bar, craft beer bar and a variety of restaurants and eateries.

12 stores are currently open.

Elliot Knight from developer Equinox Group says it is the opening of the Farro store in particular which spells great news for the marketplace and residents in the eastern suburbs.

“Over the past few months we’ve seen a growing number of locals discovering what’s taking shape here and enjoying the open plan and minimalist, industrial retail environment on offer. With the arrival of Farro, we have a further drawcard with their superb range of artisan foods and the fantastic service that Farro stores are known for.”

Janene Draper, co-founder of Farro says she’s really excited about the venue, having looked at the Orakei Bay Village site as a possible store location nearly ten years ago.

“It is in a fabulous catchment area for us, located in a prime spot on a number of access routes for people in the eastern suburbs and Remuera. The recent works have created a beautiful fit out and we love the old warehouse feel which has come up really well.”

The opening of the artisan food supplier is the perfect step towards making Orakei Bay Village a destination in its own right and a chance to breathe new life into the 50-year-old industrial buildings located there.

With a handful of stores to open over the coming weeks including Brothers Beer and new eatery & by Melba Group, Orakei Bay Village, is expected to be fully tenanted by the end of March.
