[ADVERT]If you're spending a weekend in Caloundra, be sure to check out the fun Bulcock Street Markets on a Sunday morning. They are surprisingly large and there are plenty of quirky stalls to browse as well as food and entertainment for the whole family.

Always wanted to buy an adult size rainbow onesie romper but didn't know where to find one? The Dinky Dye stall has just the thing!

Just what you always wanted?

I was surprised by the snake handler who was offering the opportunity to hold a live snake and have your photo taken. Strangely, he was also selling $5 backpacks.

You have to smile at Dodgy Paulies Fruit & Fungus Emporium. His sign is written on an old bit of cardboard and he promises "Awesome Produce, Average Service".

There are also plenty of more traditional stands, including pretty handmade childrens clothes, lovely wooden 3D dinosaur jigsaws and handmade soap. Dog lovers might like the range of environmentally friendly toys from Fit Dog.

I was very tempted by the chocolate covered blueberries and Rocky Road slabs from the Noosa Chocolate Factory stand.

There is plenty of entertainment for the whole family. At the far end of the market there was a good bouncy castle ($3.50) and some live music. There were also stalls offering massage, palm readings and face painting.

The markets run from 8-12 am every Sunday. They were busy on the day we visited so it's worthwhile getting there early.
