I picked that pumpkin yesterday', was a comment I overheard from a stall vendor when I first arrived at the Caboolture Country Market.
The Caboolture Country Market is located at the Caboolture Showgrounds on the corner of Old Gympie Road and Beerburrum Road, Caboolture. The markets have been operating for over thirty years and have grown from strength to strength. The market is held every Sunday from 6.00 am until 12.00 pm during winter and 5.30 am to 11.30 am in summer.
If it is variety you want, then the Caboolture Country Market is the market for you because with over 500 stalls you are sure to find whatever it is that you are looking for.
There are many food stall vendors that offer samples of their product. This provides a great opportunity for the market goer to sample goodies such as popcorn, roasted macadamia nuts, fruit and a range of other different products and produce from stalls around the market.
With over forty-two fruit and veggie stalls there is no problem in finding fresh produce grown by producers in or around the local area. There are also stalls with local honey, farm fresh free-range eggs and a range of other local produce.
The market has all the usual stalls that you expect such as bric-a-brac, books, clothing, jewellery, CDs, DVDs et cetera plus stalls that have goods such as computers, trailers, building equipment, electronics, scrapbooking and card making. There are also services available such as haircuts, massages and key cutting.
The Caboolture Country Market covers a large area so make sure that you allow plenty of time to browse as there is a lot to see and do. Happy bargain hunting.
