Foodies, fashionistas, savvy bargain-hunters and admirers of fine, handcrafted products find what they’re looking for at the Sunshine Coast’s smorgasbord of markets.
Our market venues cover the length and breadth of the region and are held somewhere just about every day of the week (even some nights!).
During these pandemic-crazy times, market co-ordinators have put in place social distancing and health and safety plans to ensure every member of the family can enjoy their time browsing, chatting with artisan stallholders, eating their way around the world in international cuisine and filling their shopping bags with bargains and fresh goodness.
Discover a picturesque country town or beachside gem as you trawl for kitchen bric-a-brac, reminisce over vintage flared jeans, choose a quirky souvenir for Aunty Dot or wolf down an iced donut you’ve been drooling over.
Here’s a selection of markets, near and nearby, appealing to young and old.
