This Easter, have an egg-cellent time in Jersey.

So, grab your Easter basket and get ready for it to be filled with chick-tastic ways to pass the Easter days, creating memories that you’ll be cracking up about all year long.
Abundant local produce.
As an island famed for its exports, the Jersey Royal potato, lobsters, oysters and dairy, which all attribute their unique flavours to the Jersey landscape, it’s unsurprising to hear that there’s lots of other yummy local produce too.
Look out for the catch of the day on spring menus like line caught bass, reeled in by local fishermen and fresh Jersey beetroot and purple sprouting broccoli. You’ll also discover the yellowest of yokes from free-range eggs that ooze with freshness on menus at top brunch spots. Wander Jersey’s markets in St. Helier and beyond to find the freshest of produce.
