Whip up something special this Easter and put together a feast worthy of the occasion. Here’s your guide to Easter food shopping at the Village.
Whether you’re eager to flex your cooking skills and whip up something special or looking for someone else to take care of catering, St Ives Shopping Village has everything you need to put together a feast worthy of the four-day long weekend. Here’s your guide to Easter food shopping at the Village.
Shop from a range of delicious chocolate eggs and find someone to cater your Easter lunch in the same spot. Foodies rejoice over gourmet deli essentials, small goods, antipasto, and cheese, as well as hot meals. Present your family and guests with a next-level charcuterie board put together by owners Victor and Olga and their friendly team.
For a spin on the traditional Easter meal, hop to AM-Mart Asian Grocer for all the essentials to whip up your favourite Asian dishes: sauces, marinades, snacks, sweets, pre-made dumplings and drinks. You can also pick up bamboo mats, steamers and other utensils.
Respect your bodies and the environment this Easter with healthy and sustainable options from The Source Bulk Foods. Check out the range of crème-filled Easter eggs (some of which are vegan and all which contain no preservatives or artificial additives), DIY hot cross bun recipe kits, and chocolate-coated nuts and fruits. Plus, it’s all free of wasteful packaging.
Decadent cakes and desserts that impress are aplenty at Rebecca Lauric Patisserie. Order a cake for the whole family or pick out a selection of individual treats to satisfy every sweet tooth. With a four-day weekend to cater for, there’s more than enough opportunity to expand upon the traditional chocolate offering.
There’s no substitute for quality when it comes to your Easter roast. Thankfully, St Ives Shopping Village is home to more than one master butcher. Ask the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Sutcliffe Meats or Craig Cook The Natural Butcher to help you pick out the perfect cut of meat and for advice to make your Sunday feast your best yet.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Easter without fresh hot cross buns slathered with butter (or your preferred alternative). Since 1980, Bakers Delight has been providing classic fruit-filled buns to the masses, so you know the recipe has been perfected. If you like to stray from tradition, try the sweet and spicey apple and cinnamon hot cross buns or go for the beloved choc chip-stuffed option.
While you’re doing the Easter food shopping, be sure to say hello to the Easter Bunny. Kids can collect their Easter gift and colouring-in card from Concierge, Thursday, 14 April, and Saturday, 16 April, from 10am–1pm.
