Seddon Market This Saturday 24th – Be There!

Cappuccino Shortbreads Those that love Helen’s Kitchen Favourites’ Shortbreads will be happy to learn that, I’ve just introduced my ‘Cappuccino Shortbread’.  It’s a delicious coffee drizzled shortbread that’s ideal as a bite size mid-morning snack, or with an after dinner coffee.

An alternative flavour to the Passionfruit and Rosewater flavoured options. Check with stockists or come and visit me at Seddon or Flemington Markets this weekend 23 and 24 March.

New Stockists! Is There a Stockist Near You?

With the addition of three new stockists, I hope many of you will find it easier to find my products. All three stores share the same values of providing excellent quality produce and take pride in delivering great service. I’m proud to be associated with them.

Gisborne Village Fresh – Being only 55kms from Melbourne, many tree changers have moved to Gisborne which is transforming this delightful town into a foodie haven. Kylie, with Joe, Gloria and Domenic in shop 9 at 22 Brantome St, Gisborne have beautifully balanced the traditional values of good country service and local produce, with the demands of modern gourmet tastes.  They also provide a wide range of specialty grocery and deli items. All in all, a worthwhile destination whether you travel locally or from Melbourne.

Fresh on Young – A recently renovated fresh fruit, vegetable and grocery store in the heart of Moonee Ponds at 24 Young St. Fresh is the key word here as Tony takes great pride in offering what his patrons are after, good quality fresh produce together with excellent deli and grocery items. Tony goes one step further and has a fabulous range of fresh meat and seafood on offer. That’s what keeps his customers coming back.

Senserrick’s Fruit and Flowers – Sara and Patrick have a beautifully presented store located at 700A Old Calder Hwy, Keilor.  The store offers an extensive range of the freshest fruit and vegetables.  Also on offer is a great range of gourmet items including nuts, cakes and biscuits, plus a range of gluten free products.  As a point of difference, this stockist is also a fully fledged florist that can organise the most beautiful flower arrangements for any occasion.
