Butchers and bakers and candlestick makers in Birkenhead Village. Fresh is best!

Written by Kae Condon on November 23rd, 2012.      1 comments

“Fresh Food daily” is the catch cry of the myriad of vendors in Birkenhead Village who prepare fresh food daily for their local customers.   Shopping for fresh supplies in November and December in the Village has the added fun of customers being in to win $1000 cash by simply collecting their receipts to a $50 value as they purchase their daily supplies and entering in one of the entry boxes provided in store.   The Birkenhead Village Cash for Christmas promotion is back promoted by the Birkenhead Business Association,  and offering shoppers the chance to win simply by shopping in the area.  Whether buying daily produce, or shopping for gifts everyone is in with a chance to win.

The village is building an enviable reputation locally as being the local farmers market that offers “fresh” to customers on a daily basis. 
 Two fresh fish mongers, Highbury Fish Shop located since 1920 at historic Highbury, and Real Fresh Fish on Mokoia road, offer a combination of personal service and over 30 varieties of seafood from Snapper, John Dory, to Orange Roughy.  If they don’t have it today they can order it in for you tomorrow.  Personal service is at the heart of shopping in the village.   Recent arrival Grant Wright of Highbury Butchery offers an array of delectable and unusual fresh made meats, and was an apprentice under Stott, the first butcher in the area in the 1920’s.  Chris from OOT Patisserie next door, will tempt you with his delicious array of German sweet delicacies all baked fresh on the premises daily.

If you are looking for exciting or exotic flavours a visit to one of our many speciality purveyors will not disappoint you.  From hard to find Raspberry dressings at Ashore Fine Food & Wine, to exotic spices and sauces at Spice n Easy or Pak N Fresh at 75 Mokoia Road.
With Christmas coming it is a time for gifts and giving there are three fine destination gift shops  to discover : Crave, Wallace Cotton and Art of Gifts.  If it’s that unique item of clothing  you are seeking don’t miss our traditional mini department store Yarnton’s, or  Simply Wonderful ! – With personal service you are bound to find that special personal gift.  Don’t forget to visit our unique candlestick maker - Golden Glow Candles at 30 Enterprise street.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Village soon is sure to enter the competition and have some old fashioned fun while you shop in our relaxed ambiance. 

Parking throughout the village is free and located in three convenient locations Rawene Road council car park opposite the library, Highbury Mall and Birkenhead Square on Mokoia rd.
