Brisbane’s Best Markets for Fresh Produce, Local Art & Incredible Food
For the best in local wares and produce, these are the Brisbane markets to peruse this weekend.
There’s nothing better than a lazy morning browse through the markets, coffee in one hand and dog leash in the other. Many Brisbanites spend the wee hours of their weekend mornings loading up on local produce to enjoy over the week, supporting our local farmers, foodies and small businesses. We’ve put together a guide to the city’s favourites so that you can experience the best Brisbane markets yourself!
For every type of vegan food, snack or skincare you didn’t know existed, enter the Brisbane Vegan Markets. The best way to try before you buy, explore different vendors' offerings and their tasty samples that will have you coming back for more. Don’t forget to bring a hearty appetite, as the tantalising scents of sizzling burgers or warm and sugary donuts prove (very) difficult to resist. We tried.
