Easter Produce at Queen Vic Market
Queen Vic Market is the best place to source the freshest produce in town and there’s no better time to help support your local traders.
Shop the Market this Easter
Wander through the iconic Meat & Fish Hall and you’ll notice that our stallholders are beginning to line their shelves with Easter staples. Seafood delicacies including salmon, oysters, prawns and barramundi are all in abundance, whilst our butchers have already begun taking orders on local lamb, so don’t miss out on that much coveted cut, and pre-order from your favourite butcher today!
Celebrating an Orthodox Easter
For those celebrating Orthodox Easter, our Dairy Produce Hall provides customers with a trove of delicious offerings. The Hellenic Deli’s tsoureki bread will no doubt feature on many tables – this traditional sweet bread has a brioche-like consistency and is decorated with a red-dyed, hard-boiled egg. Many other Orthodox favourites can be found including spanakopita and koulourakia.
Fruit and Veg is a must!
Sheds A, B, H and I are a great place to find fruit and veg – items like pumpkins, parsnips and artichokes will look great in your Easter roasting tray. Make sure you keep an eye out for imperial mandarins, persimmons, jazz apples and feijoas, quince and figs.
Treats, treats…and MORE TREATS
Whilst the traditionalists might wait until Good Friday to toast a bun and hop into the Easter spirit, this is certainly not the case here at Queen Vic Market. One step inside the Dairy Produce Hall and the aroma of spiced Hot Cross Buns fills the air. Our range of buns are bigger and better than ever– there’s raisin buns, dark chocolate buns, and even vegan and gluten-free buns to be found.
For those that are starting to wear the toque blance, then we recommend a visit to Gewurzhaus, their Hot Cross Bun spice mix is perfect for those wanting to bake their own buns.
But it really isn’t Easter without some good quality chocolate, is it? The Market is home to two of Melbourne’s most distinguished chocolatiers: Koko Black will be showcasing their vast range of Easter eggs with milk eggs aplenty, and for those that like to indulge in something a little different, we suggest trying their Ugandan single origin eggs. Over in String Bean Alley the team at Melbourne Cocoa will be offering their Melbourne-inspired blends at great prices – if you’re a coffee connoisseur then we recommend the mocha blend.
