From darling Easter daisies to tulips and other early blooming bulbs, a flourish of spring flowers is in keeping with a traditional Easter message of rebirth.

At the Saturday Fresh Market, you can shop for gorgeous bouquets at Multiflowers and Freddy’s Flowers. We recommend a bright spray of fresh tulips – if you squint, they also look like Easter eggs!

Tasty treats

Market-goers flock to The Little Gingerbread Cottage at Easter to sample their adorable range of gingerbread cookies. The Little Gingerbread Cottage uses an old family recipe that originated in Germany to create sweetly spiced cookies with a crisp outside and a soft, cakey inside.

If you want a larger selection of flavours, try the delicious selection of biscuits at I am ARI, discover homemade fudge at the Fudge Stall or grab some fresh donuts from G Free Donuts.

Not into loading your kids up with sugar this Easter? Why not drop by Variety Shops and check out their selection of fidget spinners, pop its and other awesome kids toys.

Is it even Easter without a bunch of freshly baked hot cross buns for breakfast?

Traditionally the fragrantly spiced, sweet buns are eaten on Good Friday, and mark the end of Lent. However, these bad boys are so tasty that we wish we could eat them all year round!

If you’re after hot cross buns and other baked goods for your Easter feasts, you can visit Sprout Artisan Bakery, The Little French Bakery, Sol Breads, Yummioh Organic Bakery and Wildflour Cakes and Bakes to see what’s on offer.

While we might not have dedicated Easter eggs stalls, we do have Sudon Eggs available for your fresh egg supplies. Why not get some for breakfast and extra to try these Easter egg decorating crafts for some school holiday fun?

Fantastic feasts

Put all your eggs in the Saturday Fresh Market basket and get everything you need for a long weekend of food, family and fun.

Whether its battered fish and chips, a nice piece of snapper charred on the barbecue, or a platter of oysters, many Australians dig into a seafood feast over the Easter long weekend.

For all your seafood needs, Seafood Direct/Butcher Boy Meats are your go-to stall at the Saturday Fresh Market. If you want to widen the menu, check out the range on offer at All About Meat, Square Cuts and Food and Wine Concepts.

Add in the humongous selection of fresh fruit and vegetables available at our numerous fresh produce stalls, you have an Easter feast to remember.

Gorgeous gardens

Extra long weekend is also the perfect time to get into the garden and give it some much needed attention. Take the time to plan out your project on Good Friday, then hop along to the Saturday Fresh Market and pick up the ideal plants for your dream garden.

Happy Easter and enjoy your long weekend!
