Held every weekend in Carrara, the Carrara Markets are a treasure trove of the unusual and affordable, just 20 minutes drive from our Surfers Paradise holiday accommodation.
The markets are now over 30 years old and with more than 500 stalls to explore, they are the largest permanent markets in the region. Spread out over 10 acres, you’ll find surprises around over corner at this icon of the Gold Coast shopping scene – don’t forget to leave some extra room in your suitcase for all the bargains you pick up!
There are around 100 fashion stalls to browse, stacked with handmade jewellery, quirky fashion, shoes and swimwear, as well as a great selection of book and record stalls. Foodies can pick up fresh pates, olives and cold meats at one of the Continental delis dotted around the market or stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables to enjoy during your break from one of the many 15 fresh produce stalls. You’ll find 10 cafes where you can stop and rest awhile, while the kids will love the fun activities available at the Family Fun Lane.
The markets take place every Saturday and Sunday between 7am and 4pm. To find out more, please visit: http://carraramarkets.com.au
