Easter is just around the corner, and the Market is your one-stop shop for Easter shopping; with chocolate treats, hot cross buns, seafood, gifts and fresh produce at your fingertips! Check out a selection of what is on offer below.
The Easter long weekend wouldn’t be complete without chocolate! Stop by Atypic Chocolate for a wide range of delectable, hand-made chocolate treats and their special edition Rustica chocolate hot cross buns. Be sure to enter the Atypic Easter Lottery as well – $2 will get you into the draw to win a 2kg giant chocolate bunny! The South Melbourne Market Grocer has a large range of Easter eggs and chocolate available at great prices (see below) and Sweets on South will have you covered, whether it be fudge, candy, chocolate or international sweets you might be after.
Field, Barns & Co have the ultimate in fun, with a “build-your own” Easter Bunny cake! The kids will love it, and all parts (think ears, whiskers, cheeks and nose!) are included. Preorders available – so get in quick!
Hot cross buns your thing? St George’s Bakery will be stocking their popular sourdough hot cross buns again this year, and for the sweet tooth, Agathé Pâtisserie will be offering special edition macadamia and milk chocolate croissants and a tajine hot cross bun (pictured below). Moses & Co have a wide range of varieties available, including organic spelt, rye and wholegrain hot cross buns, as well as gluten-free and vegan hot cross buns. Emerald Deli have delicious Easter Buns with currents and sultanas from the French Breakfast Bakehouse, and the donut kings at La Lapa have hot cross buns not to be missed.
A popular choice over the Easter long weekend, seafood at the Market will be in high demand. Avoid the queues and get your orders in early at The Fish Shoppe, South Melbourne Seafoods and Aptus Seafoods. They will also be open from 6am on Thursday 18 April for those looking to purchase before the long weekend.
There is plenty of alternatives to chocolate gifts for the kids at the Market, including fun fur hats at Joepat Fashion Accessories, plush toys at Clare’s Bears and Wares and a wide range of clothing, books and giftware at The SuperCool Kid. And local designer, Suki McMaster has a special edition Bunny with Ice Cream print – perfect for an Easter gift or to decorate your home with.
Happy shopping, and we hope to see you at the Market!
