This Mother’s Day is going to be a bit different from usual, but it can still be a special day for Mums. Our traders have a great selection of items that can either be bought in-store (food stalls only), home delivered or ordered for drive-through pick up with our Order & Collect system. We’ve rounded up some of our top picks for Mother’s Day this year!
Lost in Seasons has 20% off Rollies. If Mum hasn’t already discovered these super comfortable, lightweight shoes, now’s the time to introduce her to them.
For mums who prefer to choose their own fashion, accessories and jewellery, a gift card is the perfect idea. For Mother’s Day, Ruby & Sky are offering a 25% discount, meaning that $100 gift cards only cost $75. What a great way for Mum to get more bang from your bucks! Plus they can be delivered in person or straight to her inbox. This offer is valid until 11.59pm on 10 May.
Merchants of Change is also offering a big online discount in the form of 20% off storewide with the code MDAY20 at the checkout. Gift vouchers are also available that can be used online, or for mums who prefer to do their shopping in person, can be used in store once Merchants of Change’s stall reopens.

Coconut Revolution also has great skincare options made from pure, cold-pressed virgin coconut oil – their hand creams are a must-have for the drying winter months.
For the home cook, it’s hard to look past Gewurzhaus, who are still trading at the Market but also offer online shopping with Australia-wide shipping. Choose from their selection of gift packs or choose your own selection of spices, herbs and teas to suit Mum’s taste.
Add some Spanish flavour to Mum’s day with a paella kit from La Central. As of May 1, La Central is offering 10% off their paella kits and will have online tutorials on staple Spanish dishes so Mum can master Spanish cuisine from the comfort of home.
If your mum’s a bit wild at heart (or just happens to love leopard print), check out the range of homewares, 100% cotton soft furnishings and napery from Yakedy Yak. Place your order by 30 April to receive your gift in time for Mother’s Day.
Market Import has a colourful selection of crockery, homewares and accessories to make mealtimes special – bring Mexico to the table with a platter like this one. (If you would like your selection gift wrapped, give Market Import a call on 9500 0764 to let them know.)
For the diehard yoga mum (or the mum who keeps talking about getting into yoga but hasn’t quite got around to it!), Luna & Soul is a one-stop shop for organic cotton active wear, eco-friendly cork and rubber yoga mats, copper drink bottles and artisan-made gemstone bracelets.
It’s hard to go past the classics, and at this time, indoor plants and floral arrangements are more popular than ever with everyone staying indoors. PJ Plants are participating in the Market’s Order & Collect Service, offering gorgeous ferns, fiddle leaf figs, herbs, Hypoestes and more. Check out their Instagram page for what’s available and place your order by midday Wednesday for collection on Thursdays.
Azalea Flowers are also offering local home delivery on their beautiful arrangements and fresh cut flowers (including bouquets with locally grown chrysanthemums, the traditional flower for Mother’s Day) so why not order Mum and yourself some Market fresh flowers to brighten the home!
And last but certainly not least: artisan chocolates from Atypic, or go all out with their special Mother’s Day cake of choux pastry filled with milky dark chocolate mousse and raspberry compote garnish with fresh raspberries and a white chocolate heart. This is bound to make mums with a sweet tooth smile – and if you’re very good, Mum might just share some with you!
