Christmas in Bowden 2023

13 December 2023

This is one for the locals. We can almost hear the sound of sleigh bells but if you’re feeling less than organised this silly season, not to worry. Like Santa rounds up his reindeer, we’ve wrapped up some Bowden food supplies, gifts and even events to ensure the best festive season ever!

Christmas Food

Super salads
Salads are sorted thanks to the My Grandma Ben team. There is an array of delicious choices. Be sure to get your orders in by Tuesday 19 December, then come to collect your delicious fresh table fillers on Christmas Eve!

Succulent seafood
The very best and absolute freshest seafood has to come from The House of Fish and House of Oyster. It’s not an Aussie Christmas without fresh seafood! Final orders are to be in by Sunday 17 December to guarantee your Christmas Day supply is super fresh.

Decadent Christmas cakes
On dessert duty? Not to worry the Shirni Parwana crew are here to save you. Choose from Persian Love Cake, Chai-Spiced Carrot Cake or Date Cake to feed up to 6 people for just $40. Swing by the store in Plant 3 to order.

Last minute mince pies 
Look, there are no guarantees here as these guys sell out QUICK but if you’re looking for the finest mince pies to feed Santa, look no further than The Lost Loaf. Make sure you’re there first thing to get yours, as great pies wait for no one.

Dietary desserts sorted
If you’re on designated dessert duty but have some dietary requirements to cover, skip the complicated baking and hand it over to the experts at Nutrition Republic. The amazing team have plenty of fresh, healthy and dietary-friendly options that will wow everyone at the table. Enquire via social media for whole cake options.

Graze away
The friendly Bowden IGA folks are able to help you with all sorts of groceries and ingredients to help your Christmas spread look and taste amazing. But our absolute favourite tip is to grab your grazing boxes and platters from them! Fruit plates, cheese boards, grazing platters, they have it all! Hop over to their Facebook for options and pricing.

Stock up the wine rack
Head in and see the super-knowledgeable staff at Bowden Cellars to make sure the Christmas table doesn’t run dry (unless you want it to!) this year. What a marvellous way to be sure you’re drinking the best of SA this Christmas.

Christmas Gifting

Christmas markets
Plant 4 Bowden are hosting a mini–Christmas Gifting market this weekend (Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December from 9am-3pm at Plant 4 Bowden.) Lots of store holders missed out last week due to the WILD weather, so there’s even more time to shop up a storm this weekend! This event really is the best way to support local and grab gifts that everyone will adore.

Banksia Bundles
Our friends at Little Banksia Tree in Plant 3 Bowden have put together some awesome bundles that require zero effort but will have maximum impact on Christmas morning. Think coffee mugs with hot choc and chai spice blends or amazing house-made condiments for the kitchen-lover. 

For the green thumbs
There are few people who don’t LOVE being gifted a gorgeous plant. Plus, plants are good for you. Head to Potted Thoughts to show the green thumbs in your life you’ve been thinking of them.

The best in beer
Got a beer lover to buy for? Discovery packs from Bowden Brewing are still on sale with a selection of the crew’s absolute finest, all brewed right here in Bowden. Or simply grab a slab of Santa Slay Christmas Sour, made specifically to enhance your holiday experience.

Festive events

Oddio Annual Holiday Party 
For the days between Christmas and New Year where everything is a bit weird and you aren’t sure what to do with yourself, this is the plan. The Oddio fun squad are running their annual Holiday Party on December 27 and 28 from 3pm onwards. Expect pizzas from Sunnys Pizza, live tunes and, of course, great wines. Free entry, walk in.    

New Yeets Eve
While we still can’t be certain what it is to ‘yeet’ something, we’re told that’s what Bowden Brewing are doing to 2023. These party animals have great music, DJs and plenty of their famed Purple Yeet Juice on tap to help you say hello to 2024 in style.
