Keep Dad up with the latest fashion trends
Do you find that your Dad’s wardrobe could do with a little bit of a makeover?
Combining over 40 years’ experience, the father/son duo at Sweaters Australia are offering an unbeatable special on their possum merino and silk crew necks; and if you’re after something to keep Dad warm this chilly Melbourne winter, we highly recommend the cashmere scarves from Aleppo Style and full-length woollen coats from Catcher Coats. Across at Melbourne’s Newest Laneway, String Bean Alley, you’ll find the Miss Brown Vintage, aka the masters of vintage fashion. They’re offering Market-goers discounts on select styles including vintage Levi and Sherpa jackets for the super trendy Dad!
For the foodie Dad
Start this Father’s Day off the right way and treat Dad to a breakfast he’ll never forget. There’s no better place to pick up the finest ingredients than the iconic Dairy Produce Hall. The Corner Chicken Shop are offering a complementary dozen free-range eggs when you spend $40, whilst Big Vic Deli are discounting their famous Vecchiet pork salami at 15% off. McIver’s Coffee & Tea Merchants are at your service with their extensive range of caffeinated goods, and if you’re looking for something a little bit stronger, swing down the aisle and let the knowledgeable staff at Swords Wines look after you with their extensive expertise of all things red, white and rose! Moving down to Elizabeth Street, you’ll find Pickett’s Deli and Rotisserie, and for Father’s Day they have gone above and beyond to curate a special Father’s Day hamper. For just $85, Dad can indulge in a bottle of Prosecco, chicken liver parfait, prosciutto, Savour & Grace brie, lemon myrtle jam, Mount Zero olives, candied nuts and more.
For the arty Dad
Whether it be unique wall features, photography or paintings, the Market is the perfect place to pick up something special for the arty Dad.
