Eat, Drink and be Merry!
Everybody knows food brings people together, especially over the festive period. To break bread with friends and family is a long-standing ritual that requires only the most delicious of food. Thankfully, the Shire has become a foodie’s heaven in recent years with top-notch restaurants and cafes throughout.
This Christmas, there are markets, grazing boxes and specialty retailers dedicated to helping you have a tasty time, whether you’re hosting, need to “bring a plate” or simply looking for a gift for the foodie in your life.
The long-awaited Shire Christmas Markets are back! Shoppers will discover homemade gifts, unique festive decorations and delicious food. There will be a feast of global food on offer, with shoppers able to relax over pizza, falafel, pho, dumplings, gozleme, burgers, hot wings, skewers, vegan fare, coffee, pastry, meatballs and plenty more.
In addition, kids can run free and enjoy activities on the day, including a special visit from the big man in red himself. Not only is the market a great day out for all the family, but any purchase you make will support one of the many micro-retailers at the market, in turn helping them have a good Christmas.
Shire Christmas Markets are held at Don Lucas Reserve Cronulla on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November, from 10am-4pm.
