Market Categories

Lifestyle Markets (Food & Craft)

Good food and tasty delights, good music, relaxing ambiance, friendly get togethers, love & laughter, and awesome shopping for hand crated goodies, organic veggies and more! Lifestyle markets seem to be everyones favourites. Find them all here

Occasional Markets

Because life is to be celebrated, we often find special-occasion or fundraising markets whilst we’re on our travels. These are not held regularly, but are just there to, well, celebrate! Join in the celebrations!

Night Markets

There is little explanation needed here! Music to stomp your feet to, food to fill your tum, goodies to fill your shopping basket, and great companionship – night markets are all about the great vibe!

Flea Markets

There are still some great traditional old flea markets out there selling more cost effective imported household goods, novelties, bric-a-brac & clothing. These are really worth paying a visit from time to time to pick up a great bargain.

Organic & Farmers Markets

The real deal, helping to build a sustainable world by selling only organically produced goods whether food, lotions, potions or clothes! Be kind to the earth, visit an organic market for your weekly shopping.

Holiday & Christmas Markets

Special markets held in (you guessed it….) the holidays! Pre-plan your Christmas, Easter and Winter shopping! Holiday markets are festive & fun! If you don’t find a public-holiday market listed here, check those under the ‘occasional’ category.
