HERE ON THE GOLD COAST, WE LOVE A GOOD MARKET. THE FRIENDLY FACES, THE HANDMADE PRODUCTS AND THE SMELL OF COOKING WAFTING THROUGH THE AIR… WE’VE COMPILED A LIST OF OUR MARKET FAVES. CONSIDER YOUR WEEKEND SORTED.
With the upgrade of the Surfers Paradise foreshore, including that big, new, inviting footpath and upgraded beach access, the Surfers Paradise Markets have enjoyed a reinvigorated home. And what a home it is – the view from this market and the beachside ambience have made it popular with international tourists, short-stay visitors, after-dinner diners and locals alike. Held each Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, there are about 130 stalls along this 800m foreshore stretch with live entertainers bringing the fun.
You’ll find a wide variety of stall holders here – pick up fashion and jewellery, exotic shells, art, unique homewares, artisan foods and more. You can score Dad that cane toad wallet he’s always wanted or get your own handmade into a wax sculpture – and everything else in between! If the weather’s off though, the markets can be cancelled so keep an eye on their Facebook page for any notifications.
Where and when: Surfers Paradise foreshore // 4-9pm on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
