The markets are proving popular and are expanding into a real Saturday morning treat between 6.30 am to 1 pm.

4. Noosa Markets.
Head here, Sunday morning 7 am to 12 pm. It is also family friendly and also offers parental escape with the blessed presence of the Jumping Castle.

These markets are well reknowned for their fresh, local produce just plucked or picked from the earth. Don’t forget to try some local cheese. Variety abounds amongst all that there is to choose from including hand painted silk scarves that look made in Spain. The Noosa Markets are the best place to find a striking, organic sarong.
5. Twilight Markets.
They don’t commence until Friday evening, December 5 from 4 pm until 9 pm on the Bulcock Beach esplanade, but they are well worth the wait and attendance is highly recommended. Compared to the briskness of morning markets, twilight markets have a unique, delicious ambience especially in a tropical state. The air is cool, candles flicker, music plays and there’s much to buy.
