To market, to market, to buy a fat pig… do you remember the folk nursery rhyme? Markets have long been part of our culture to source fresh, local produce, absorb the sense of community, and enjoy the weekend morning. Nowadays they are popular once again and Noosa has a great array of produce and craft markets each with a different atmosphere to soak in.
From fresh produce markets at the Noosa Farmers Market, to the famous Eumundi Markets, to the small village markets and twilight street food markets, find your place to market on your next visit to Noosa.
Noosa Marina Markets
The Noosa Marina Markets offer an easy market to wonder on a Sunday morning in an idyllic setting – on the deck, overlooking the Noosa River. Take your time strolling around the many market stalls, where a variety of locally made craft items can be found along with the freshest of local produce. The atmosphere is alive with music and entertainment from local and interstate musicians. Stay for breakfast or lunch with one of the many restaurants overlooking the Noosa River or Marina.
