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, The Greek Cuzina, The Breakfast Shack, Yo-Get-It, Mumma Mu’s Cucina and Uncle Juan’s Bakehouse.

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, I&M Unique Planters and Goodna 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, The Miles Away Company 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.

I am ARI creates delicious homemade dessert cookies and for something more traditional, Peter Huggetts’ Fudge is on hand along with The Little Gingerbread Cottage.

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 of luxury candles from The Attik, sugar scrubs and wax melts from Pure Luxe Co and dōTERRA essential oils, books and accessories from Sarah Massey Health & Wellness.

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!
