Tugun Market Co. co-owner Elisha McDermott is focused on delivering a family friendly shopping experience for southern Gold Coasters who love to entertain with the freshest and best produce and as a parent herself, this is a non-negotiable.

“We welcome the Gold Coast community to discover everything we have to offer at Tugun Market Co. so we are hosting Family Fun Day. This is a great opportunity for the kids can be entertained while the parents can explore the Coast’s new foodie paradise” Elisha said.

“The kids can enjoy a free craft workshop, reptile ‘pat & chat’ sessions, face painting and funny lawn games and parents can indulge in gourmet tastings, budget relieving food specials, excellent coffee and live entertainment. We also understand your pooch is part of the family, so please bring them along too because will be treating them to free dog washes and colourful fur styling” she said.
