Mother’s Day the Market Way

The second Sunday of May is the day of the year we devote to saying thank you to all Mums. We know that every Mum is unique, but you are sure to find the perfect way to say thanks at the Saturday Fresh Market.

1) Take her out for breakfast

There’s a huge selection of brunch options in the Saturday Fresh Market food court, so it’s the perfect start to your Mother’s Day shopping spree.

With live music from 7.30am, you can enjoy the ambience while trying the delicious offerings from food vendors such as Mum’s Crepes, The Bagel Boys, Lamun Japanese Pancakes, and The Greek Cuzina.

2) Buy her some flowers

Why do we give flowers as a Mother’s Day gift? For one thing, flowers symbolise fertility, which definitely suits the occasion. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet bursting with colour and fragrance?

Mother’s Day bouquets traditionally consist of carnations, roses or tulips, but don’t let that limit you! Multi Flowers and Freddy’s Flowers are on hand for a selection of bouquets and market bunches to suit any budget.

If your mum has a green thumb, why not check out the selection available from our plant stalls, such as pots, terrariums, plant holders and more available from Pretty Tied Up, Goodna Nursery, Lake Clarendon Nursery, Sumet Plants and Brooklea Nursery.

3) Add to her wardrobe

If your mum is fashion-minded, we’ve got plenty of clothing and accessories to make her feel special.

Check out the unique clothing and accessories available from Designs by Sparrow, Dom n 8 Design and Everest Wool.

Either Trend Patrol and Miss2Shades are on hand each week for stylish sunglasses, while Fat Kitten features quirky, hand-poured resin jewellery and Aspire Crystals has handmade crystal jewellery and stones.

4) Spoil her sweet tooth

Has your mum got a taste for the sweeter things in life? We’ve got some delicious treats that you can take home for her.

If you’re looking for some chocolate-y goodness, Amy Sargeantson Chocolates and Sweet Confections is your go-to, while the Fudge Stall and The Little Gingerbread Cottage widen tht selection available.

5) Give her an excuse to relax

Give mum the gift of relaxation with a range of different scented products such as candles, melts, oils and bath products.

Check out the selection from The Attik and Red Lane Candles, or if you want to make the house more comfort, check out the beautiful home wares from EPD Cushions (with the added bonus of all monies spent going to charity) or We Sell Seashells.

With these ideas for inspiration, you’re sure to be able to give mum the gift of a relaxing spa day from the comfort of home!

Why not bring mum along to the Saturday Fresh Market and celebrate together with a morning full of market goodies?
