Here are some of Canberra’s best markets to pick up a trinket, a bunch of sweet blooms or fresh ingredients for an end-of-the-week feast.

The Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets are another Canberra icon. Setting up shop in 1967, they are the oldest markets in the capital. When visiting these food markets, you can expect a bustling vibe with fruit vendors playfully persuading you to try their produce, the waft of baked goods in the air, people walking past holding piping hot, crispy churros dipped in dark chocolate and organic fruit and veggies as far as the eye can see.
