I found your site, by chance, trying to locate a hidden gem I found yesterday. I could not remember the name.
I now have found it – THE MARKET GARDEN. I suggest you and your husband add the grocery store to your list.
As i sit and type, I’m still in ahh. A must visit!
Hi Laurie, It does look intriguing. But unfortunately their website has very little info as to who they are and what they offer. Having never been there myself I’m not sure what to say about them. It looks like they have chocolate, gift baskets, possibly produce … and not sure what else. I’ll have to get down there and check it out! Thanks!
Hi do you stock Easter Eggs? I have family on the Island and was hoping to surprise them with some gifts for Easter ( I am emailing from Ireland), so obviously would need them to be delivered if you do. Many thanks
Hi, Sorry for any confusion, but I’m only a website listing all things in and around Victoria. I have no connection to any of the merchants, events or instututions listed. Please follow the links provided and contact them directly.
