Christmas at the Markets

We love this time of year at the Markets so much amazing produce in season cherries, lychees, mangoes, pineapples. We have local Christmas trees available at Wiffens and after all the rain we have had recently they are magnificent specimens this year. Our seafood shops are gearing up with great shellfish, prawns and fresh fish. Oceanfresh is guaranteeing supply of seafood over the Christmas period while Seaharvest is taking order for Christmas. All our delis and butchers have a great variety of ham and turkeys including free range and organic options. This is all the entertaining season and its the weather to cook outside -our butchers have great cuts of meat to put on the barbeque. We are open Thursday-Sunday gates open at 7am-5.30pm and for extended Christmas trading from Wednesday 21st of December until the 24th of December gates open at 6am-5.30pm. We are closed for the Christmas break from 25th of December reopening 5th January. turkey-whole
