Posted: 30th August 2019
Whether you’re after a gift for a friend, a bite to eat, or just a casual stroll and a browse, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for at one of the Gold Coast’s many local markets. There’s everything happening from early morning grower’s markets, to foodie heaven night markets and everything in between.
Here are our 5 best Gold Coast markets to hit up this September:
MIAMI MARKETTA – It’s a Friday or Saturday night and you’ve got no desire to cook dinner, but you’ve only got $20 in the kitty, so heading to your fave sit-down restaurant is a total stretch. So, what’s a hungry, not-keen-to-cook person to do? Two words—Miami Marketta. This long-established gem is held every Friday and Saturday night (and on a smaller scale on Wednesdays) and pulls together some of the best ethnic food stalls from across the Coast.
Pair it with an electric vibe, revolving roster of toe-tapping bands and DJs, multiple cocktail bars, a dessert hall, creative stalls and a buzzing family-friendly crowd, and you’ve got one of the absolute best markets on the Gold Coast.
When: Every Wednesday (5pm to 9pm), Friday (5pm to 10pm) and Saturday (4pm to 10pm)
Where: 23 Hillcrest Parade, Miami
THE VILLAGE MARKETS – Muse over local designers, shoulder sway to live musicians and dig your teeth into some delicious street food at Gold Coast’s bi-monthly Sunday ritual, The Village Markets.
We can almost guarantee you’ll be walking away with an empty wallet with the likes of ceramics, homewares, bohemian linen threads and accessories, all-natural beauty products and oh so much more. If you’re searching for one of the very best markets on the Gold Coast, you’ve come to the right place.
When: Sunday 1 & 15 September; 8:30am to 1pm
Where: Burleigh Heads State School, 1750 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads
MOUNT TAMBORINE COUNTRY MARKETS – So, maybe you don’t need to stock up on polish for your horse saddle. And maybe your teapot isn’t in need of a new crochet jumper. But we challenge you to find a more uplifting market experience than the Mount Tamborine Country Market.
Held in the Tamborine Mountain Showgrounds on the second Sunday of every month, it’s the perfect excuse to take a country drive, gnaw on a cob of corn and pick up some homemade lemongrass and lavender soap.
When: Sunday 8 September; 7:30am to 1:30pm
Where: Corner Main Western Road and Bartle Road, Mount Tamborine
SANCTUARY MARKETS AT CURRUMBIN WILDLIFE SANCTUARY – Great for a delish and fast feed, this family-friendly night market is held in the space adjoining the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and is filled with international food tents and trailers.
Keep this community feel-good market in mind, if a stroll followed by plenty of street eats sounds like your kind of way to end the perfect beach day.
When: Every Friday night; 4pm to 9pm
Where: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, 28 Tomewin Street, Currumbin
