The aroma of coffee and sizzling sausages fills the air as you stroll around the stalls, filling your shopping basket with fresh mangoes, navel oranges and ripe bananas. Scrumptious muffins and sweet treats are too tempting to ignore. But these are only some of the delights you’ll find in most Gold Coast markets.


Markets are not just a place to shop and eat. They are the perfect place for a social outing. You can have your eyebrows shaped and your fortune told, or be entertained by a puppet show or a singing minstrel.

Burleigh Market

Queensland’s Gold Coast has several markets, such as Burleigh Farmers Market, which is not just a fresh fruit and vegetable market.

Burleight Market also has stalls selling local arts, crafts, clothes and jewellery. You’re sure to find something to take home. Many of the stall holders are creativei local designers just getting on their feet.

There’s a puppet master who has the little ones enthralled.
