10 must visit markets from Cooroy to Caloundra

From the mountains to the sea, this region of South East Queensland grows an abundance of amazing fresh, produce and I reckon there is no better way to purchase your own box full of this abundance than at a local market. So, whether you need some lychees or crabs or even hand knitted socks, here are ten of the best markets on the Sunshine Coast.

1. Noosa Farmers Market:
Every Sunday - 7am - 12 noon
AFL Grounds, Weyba Road, Noosaville

This is your classic bustling Sunday morning market - full of over a hundred trailers and vans selling produce "picked yesterday". There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy some home made morning tea or brunch. You certainly find something for dinner here. You can also read Loni Joy's review here.

2. Noosa Marina Markets:
Every Sunday - 8am - 2pm
Parkwyn Court, Tewantin

You can catch the Noosa Ferry to these riverside markets right on Noosa Marina. Maybe sit back at The River Deck restaurant while you listen to a live band in between purchases. They have a great summery vibe at any time of the year.

3. Eumundi Markets:
Every Saturday - 7am - 2pm
Every Wednesday - 8am - 1.30pm
80 Memorial Drive, Eumundi

These markets are huge and definitely the Sunshine Coast's most famous. Expect to have fun and be spoiled for choice, whether you're looking for unique gifts, some local handicrafts or fine food. See Heath Hewitt's detailed review here.

4. Peregian Beach Markets:
Every first and third Sunday - 7am - 12.30pm
Kingfisher Drive, Peregian Beach

Stroll along the stalls selling original artworks, jewellery, clothing, plants and great local produce. After the market, the kids can have fun in the playground, the skate park or swim at the patrolled beach. Read Loni Joy's review here.

5. Yandina Plant and Produce Market:
Every Saturday - 7am - 12 noon
Yandina Sports Ground, Bruce Highway, Yandina

Head to Yandina on a Saturday morning to buy new plants for the garden, vegetables for the week or discover some second hand treasures. Read Heath Hewitt's detailed review here.

6. Cotton Tree Markets:
Every Sunday - 7am - 12 noon
King Street, Maroochydore

This is a low key beach side market which is sure to please. Read Heath Hewitt's detailed review here.

7. Kawana Waters Farmers Market:
Every Saturday - 7am - 12 noon
Sportsman's Parade, Kawana Waters

Kawana Waters hosts this delicious produce market with plenty of fresh and home made food, from jam to flowers to artisan bread. Read Tommy 's detailed review here.

8. Caloundra Markets:
Every Sunday - 8am - 12 noon
Bulcock Street, Caloundra

From snake handlers to gourmet chocolates to kids jumping castles, this busy market is a fun place to head on a Sunday morning. Read Jane Street's detailed review here.

9. Cooroy Country Market:
Every Thursday - 8am - 1pm
RSL Memorial Hall, Maple Street, Cooroy

It is well worth the effort to visit Cooroy Country Markets to find some second hand treasures, plants or home made cakes. Why not spend the day in this little country town exploring the art galleries and cafes?

10. Montville Village Markets:
Every second Saturday - 7am - 12 noon.

For those visiting the Sunshine Coast hinterland, this market in the mountains is just for you. Read Louise Boylen's detailed review here.
