The Fresh Food Market includes a very large Woolworths and 15 speciality fresh food retailers including Highpoint Fruit and Vegetable Market, Melbourne Fresh Meats, Fish Pier, Yahweh Asian Grocery, Yes It’s Fresh Deli, Tasti D-Lite and more.
Apart from all the fresh produce and foodie delights, there is also a new Eco Mall that opened in conjunction with the fresh food precinct that features a range of children’s wear, services and general merchandise retailers including PharmaSave Pharmacy, Purebaby, Ollie’s Place, Chef King and Daiso.
J and I easily found everything we needed- from free range eggs at Yes It's Fresh Deli to Meredith Goats Cheese from Go Vita.
Our star ingredient, a 7.5kg turkey came from Melbourne Fresh Meats.

After ticking all the items off our ingredients list, we had a relaxing coffee at Jasper (also located in the Fresh Food Market).

And we were ready to start cooking!
