Where Do You Get Your Easter Seafood?
Here is a list of places you can buy your delicious, fresh seafood in The Highlands for Easter.
We whipped this list up last year and have got on the blower with these fabulous suppliers and updated the deets for 2019!
Remember for big occasions like Easter, it's always a good idea to pre-order if you have specific seafood requirements or if you are ordering a large quantity. However if, like us, you're not as organised as one would like.... then just set your alarm, get up early and prepare to wait in line along with your fellow wishing-we-were better-organised-Highlanders. We all know it's worth the wait though!
We used to know him as the "BP Seafood Van Man", but with the change from BP to Caltex, his name too, has officially changed...now officially referred to as the "Caltex Seafood Van Man".
Alex’s van is set up outside the Caltex Service Station each week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 6am – 4pm.
For Easter he'll be there at 6am - 5pm on Wednesday April 17 and Thursday April 18. On Good Friday, he'll be there from 6am to 2pm for fresh seafood from the South Coast.
The Thursday before the long weekend is his busiest day, so get in early!
This friendly, local butcher is open Monday – Saturdays, with fresh seafood available on Tuesday and Fridays.
Pre-order to guarantee what you want and how much of it - orders need to be made by Wednesday April 17 for delivery on Thursday April 18. Hoppy will be open until 5:00pm on Thursday for you to pick up your order. Closed on Good Friday.
Plenty of seafood to choose from.....Flathead, Barramundi, Salmon, Oysters, Prawns...the list goes on! Pop in and see Hoppy and he'll sort you out!
Located in Springetts Arcade in Bowral, this busy butcher usually has fresh seafood available at the counter on Friday and Saturdays. For Easter, get your order in on Tuesday April 16 for delivery on Thursday April 18. If you're unlikely to get yourself organised and pre-order, they will still have lots to choose from, but get in early as it gets super busy!
The New Astor Café has a great range of fresh seafood available. If you have a specific seafood type and large quantity in mind, it's best to place an order before Tuesday April 16 for you to pick up on Thursday April 18. Otherwise, they are also open on Good Friday at 9am - 8.30pm.
The seafood store inside Harris Farm is overflowing with fresh seafood. The cut off for pre-orders is on Sunday April 14 and they're open on Thursday 6am - 9pm and open 7am on Good Friday.
Pre-order by Tuesday April 16 for pick up on Thursday as they will be closed on Good Friday. They will be open on Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday, for pick up if you want your seafood over the weekend.
Most of the local supermarkets in the area have a seafood counter to purchase your Easter seafood feast. View the full list of supermarkets here.
