Farewell to Waldec at Sevenhill Stall who has been and integral part of the cultural diversity of the Central Market for the past 27 years. Many customers from Poland, Holland, Germany and Switzerland will miss the culinary connection of  traditional products sold at Sevenhill. Thanks for all those years of great food Waldec.

Fruit and Veg
