Brisbane is becoming a buzzing hub for local markets. Its support for emerging local businesses, artists and musicians is great to see, and is a real way of bringing the community together.
Night markets have always been one of my favourite weekend activities, especially when sometimes you're looking for something that is a bit more laid-back and family friendly. Having only moved to Brisbane recently, I have compiled a list of my favourite twilight markets in the area, but if anyone knows of others in Brisbane, please feel free to add a comment to let us all know.
