HAM & TURKEY BUYERS GUIDE

Be the star of Christmas this year by selecting the best ham and turkey for your lunch or dinner. The Market has over 60 brands, sizes and cuts of ham to choose from, and over 20 types of turkey so we’ve prepared a Buyers Guide giving you the details of all the varieties on offer to help you make the right decision.

PRE-ORDER SEAFOOD

Have you been getting up at 5am to buy your seafood on Christmas Eve? Why don’t you beat the queues and pre-order your seafood from your favourite seafood stall, and pick it up through the express pick-up in the York Street carpark in the days leading up to Christmas.
