Our Sunday morning usually involves a trip to our local market, the Farmers and Flea Market at Mt Gravatt Showgrounds, held every Sunday from 6am until 12pm.



The market is divided into two sections: farmers market and flea market. The farmers market, located undercover, boasts a huge selection of stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, farm fresh eggs, honey, and homemade goods like freshly baked banana bread and jars of tomato relish. We pick up everything we need for our Sunday roast here: broccoli, carrots, pumpkin, potatoes, and pork belly roast.


There is also an undercover food court offering coffee, cupcakes, curry puffs, poffertjes (Dutch pancakes), and bacon and egg rolls.

The flea market is my favourite though. Trolling through someone else's trash, looking for treasure is lots of fun - and sometimes rewarding. Like the Welsh backpacker in New Zealand, who bought a box of books including a first edition Enid Blyton for $5, and sold the rare find for $1200. While you might not find anything quite as valuable, you will find bargains on a broad selection of second-hand goods and brand new items: clothes, books, CDs, LPs, plants, and more.


Anyone can be a seller. A stall costs $25. You can also hire tables for $5. There is no need to book, just arrive at the showgrounds between 4am and 5am on the day.

A busker is always on hand to provide some entertainment and there is a jumping castle for the kids ($3 per child).

Entry to the market costs $1 per adult while children are free.

The showgrounds are located at 1644 Logan Road in Mt Gravatt.
