Brisbane City Markets

Brisbane City Markets | every Wednesday + Thursday 

The City’s popular Brisbane City Markets pops up at Reddacliff Place from 8am-6pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Cathedral Square from 8am-2pm. Be sure to arrive hungry for the hand-picked food stalls, where you’ll find everything from fresh juices and freshly baked doughnuts to falafel pita wraps and Spanish paella. The perfect place to do your weekly shopping, meet local farmers and producers and buy fresh fruit and vegetables, plus meat, seafood and hot smoked salmon to take home.  

Riverside at the Gardens Market | every Sunday 

Riverside at the Gardens Market are held in the City Botanic Gardens every Sunday from 8am-3pm. Expect to find dozens of stallholders selling everything from fresh produce to arts and crafts or jewellery. There’s live music and entertainment for adults and children alike – all with the beautiful Botanic Gardens as the backdrop. It's the perfect riverside spot for a lazy Sunday. Discounted parking is available for those wanting to travel in for the markets.  

Suitcase Rummage | first and third Sunday of each month 

Brisbane’s Suitcase Rummage is held on the first and third Sunday of every month in Reddacliff Place, selling anything and everything from clothes, bric-a-brac and handmade goods. A bargain hunter’s haven, a $10 note will hopefully buy you a great piece (or five) with change to spare. Or, if you have old threads you're ready to part with – book a stall. Pack your suitcase with goodies to sell and once it’s empty, refill it with a special find on the day.  

Brisbane Twilight Markets| Friday night once every two months 

Brisbane Twilight Markets are presented by the BrisStyle collective and are the only Brisbane-based market that sell 100% locally made products, giving buyers the opportunity to meet the makers. In addition, there is a selection of local food vendors dishing out delicious eats to a backdrop of live music. There is also always a free craft workshop to participate in. Dates are scattered throughout the year, so check the website for updates.
