Mothers Day at the Markets

It’s Mothers Day this Sunday. Its such a lovely time of year at the Markets, Autumn produce, Autumn leaves, (mostly) blue skies, sunshine and a little bit of nip in the air. Wiffens has the largest range of great value fresh flowers in Canberra and their in store florist will be more than happy to make you a Mothers Day bunch (you can never go wrong with flowers as a gift.) Trugolds also sells flowers and our three delis have a great range of gifts. Canberra wine continues to grow in reputation and Plonk is the place to visit to pick up a local drop to drink now or cellar. Take your Mum out to breakfast, brunch or lunch at one of our cafes or food stalls or even better buy everything you need to make a Mother’s Day meal (what Mother doesn’t love not having to cook for once). image-mothers-day
