Brisbane just can't get enough of open air markets. Whether it's the fresh farm produce, the delicate hand made crafts, bargain second items or the delightful entertainment – a trip to the markets is our perfect weekend activity. The Burpengary Markets is the latest addition in the region with the grand opening taking place on Saturday 12th January. Approximately 30 km outside the Brisbane CBD, the Burpengary Markets will showcase the work of talented local artists and businesses from 8am - 1pm every Saturday.
If you've had enough of the end of year sales and if every shop is starting to look the same, spend a day exploring the unique stalls at this boutique market for a change. Make the most of the intimate atmosphere, meet the people behind the products and discover the vision behind their creations.
