Green almonds have the briefest whisper of a season before their shells harden and start looking and tasting more like the almonds we know. They are tart and crisp and subversively addictive around cocktail hour! They are fuzzy light-green orbs filled with soft jelly-like skinless almonds—soft and delicately nutty with a wholly different texture than fully mature almonds. When fresh, they can be eaten whole. They’re crunchy, tart, and reminiscent of unripe peaches - in a good way. When the outer layer is removed, the young almonds are delicate, milky, and subtly floral and grassy. They are no available in our produce section!

We have an abundance of deliciously sweet seasonal apricots in our produce sections. Fresh, ripe apricots are juicy and taste both sweet and a bit tart. With a tender texture that's not to be missed. Try these in pies, tarts, cobblers, and more. Apricot season lasts less than two months!
We were very excited when we had the chance to taste the 2015 wines from Mount Mary with Sam Middleton a few weeks ago. On the 2015 Pinot Noir they have to say “Time will dictate where this vintage of Pinot noir sits in relation to other great vintages, however we cannot remember a vintage that excited us more on release."
We are pleased to be able to offer a selection of the whole 2015 range – please get in contact if you’d like to secure an allocation!
Our T-bone steaks are sourced from Greater Southern, who use an English breed of cattle that are grass fed and GMO free. T-bone steaks are a hero piece of meat because there are two tasty cuts in one. The flavoursome sirloin on the one side of the bone and tender fillet on the other, its the best of both worlds! T-bone is at its most tasty when simply seasoned, then quickly pan-fried, grilled or barbequed.
A delicious range of soft nougat and Turkish delight can now be found on in our grocery section. Ma Mere Masion makes confectionary items in the most tradition way for an authentic tasting product. Their goal is to produce high quality artisanal sweets with unusual and exotic flavours, using suppliers who have ethical and sustainable business practices. Their Turkish delight is in the most beautiful box, and would make for a lovely gift. We have a limited supply of the Festive nougat which is a blend of Christmas spices, folded into the softest nougat you have ever tried!

The darker, tough husks that are often a magenta hue, need to be stripped away to reveal to tender and delicious yellow-green leaves inside. Cut into fine strips, the heart can be eaten raw in salads with a hot spicy sauce, as in the Thai dish nam prik or the Indonesian sambal –also excellent when teamed up with prawns and macadamia nuts. Like those of the artichoke, the petal-like leaves of the banana flower will quickly oxidize on coming into contact with the air once cut: because of their iron content, they will turn brown so it is advisable to dunk them in acidulated water.
Join us in the front courtyard of the Boatshed Market for our Inaugural Champagne Tasting! We are excited to share wines from some of our favourite Champagne growers & family owned houses in the lead up to the festive season.
