The Providore at Meletos
 

Carefully curated with local produce, house baked sourdoughs, unique homewares and seasonal flowers, The Providore at Meletos is a celebration of our creative region - the producers, farmers, makers and doers of the Yarra Valley.

Through our antique gates you’ll be drawn into our little corner of tranquillity. Boston ivy climbs the walls and visitors sip on coffee in the sunshine. Jazzy grooves and the smell of sourdough, fresh flowers and lemongrass awaken the senses. Be tempted by the gorgeous range of home wares and learn the how’s and who’s by our knowledgeable team.

The Providore also offers wedding styling packages and has the privilege of working with neighbouring venues Stones of the Yarra Valley, The Stables at Stones and The Warehouse at Meletos. The Providore styling team is overseen by Creative Director Vonnie Frazer and use local, seasonal flowers and foliage to create beautiful, memorable experiences throughout the year.

The Providore is open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm
 



Who are we?

  Ruth Poriazis   We actually put off opening The Providore until Ruth Poriazis could start with us. Her 10+ years of experience in retail working with SEED as area manager of Victoria was a blessing for us new comers.  Making a tree change from inner Melbourne to leafy Healesville, the change of scene and pace is a fresh new chapter in her life and career. “I love getting to know our locals and am touched by the loyal following we’re building. That loyalty comes from quality product, careful curation and variety. We only offer small quantities of really well made homewares and antiquities. Buying with Creative Director Vonnie Frazer is such a pleasure, her taste and eye is impeccable and we have a lot of fun."

  Ryan Frazer   Growing up in the family business that is Stones of the Yarra Valley and Meletos, Ryan has been involved in a variety of ways over the years. From labourer to kitchen hand, barman to graphic designer.
