Our team at Wellington Seamarket has started doing contactless home deliveries for fresh fish and frozen seafood products.

If you would like to get some fresh fish for dinner tomorrow night you can order here.

Our fish comes in daily from fishermen around Wellington and collaborators around the country (such as Barnes Wild Oyster for Bluff Oysters).

Our goal is to get the fish prepared and delivered to your door within 24 hours of it hitting the deck!

We deliver Monday to Friday, and cover the bottom half of the North Island (Wellington to Palmerston North).

Hey neighbours,
Have you been to the country's first "drive-thru" garden centre in Plimmerton yet? Owner Richard Persson said he sold six weeks worth of vege seedlings in three days because "we're all alcohlic gardeners this side of lockdown".

Vege seedlings have been selling out because gardeners are buying them up like crazy now and the growers weren't able to plant at level 4. But they're warning other shortages of fruit and native trees are still to come and could be long-lasting.
