Market Musts in Noosa style

With its wealth of resident artisans, abundant local produce and commitment to fine foods, Noosa offers a vibrant market culture that sees people flock to the region to explore the sights, sounds and aromas on offer each and every weekend.

Bustling with activity, the multitude of local markets are a melting pot of colour, culture and creativity, offering an opportunity to find one-of-a kind creations or sample some truly tasty morsels.

If markets are on your to do list in Noosa, here’s a quick rundown of the market musts.

Eumundi Markets

Renowned as the largest markets in the southern hemisphere, the Eumundi Markets see the picturesque hinterland town transformed into a shopper’s paradise.

Held every Wednesday and Saturday, the markets have been an ever-increasing feature since the 1970s based on a philosophy of locally made and grown offerings.

Fashion, artworks, jewellery, pottery and fine food all jostle for prime position beneath giant fig trees in a market experience that draws millions of people every year.

When it comes to must have items, shoppers are spoiled for choice, with organic skincare, baby clothes, birdhouses, sculptures, furniture and locally-designed clothing all on offer.

This is the place to pick up unique gifts and one-of-a kind clothing items or wares for your home.

Noosa Farmers Markets

Held on Weyba Road near the Noosa Arts Theatre each Sunday morning, the Noosa Farmers Markets are all about fresh produce.

This is the go-to market for locally grown fruit, vegetables, flowers and gourmet foods, and the markets are a hugely popular haunt for tourists and locals alike.

As a tip, get there early and take the time to sample some of the street food available on-site. It’s a great place to snap up a delicious breakfast on the run as you re-stock the pantry for a week of fine food ahead.

Peregian Beach Markets

On the first and third Sunday of every month, the coastal village of Peregian Beach arises early for its beachside morning markets.

Local offerings and artisan wares abound at this boutique market, and it’s a great place to source upcycled, vintage, or designer items along with organic or fair-trade food, clothing, jewellery and décor.

The vibe here is fun, beachy and artisan, with live music and street food also available to satiate the heart and soul while you indulge in an artistic array of retail therapy.

Yandina Markets

Just a hop, skip and jump down the Bruce Highway from Eumundi is the small hinterland town of Yandina, which boasts a traditional-style flea market every Saturday morning.

Aside from the Eumundi Markets, this is one of the largest and most eclectic markets on the northern Sunshine Coast, featuring everything from collectables to vintage clothing, rustic tools and a huge array of plants.
