Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

As most Sunshine Coasters realise, not ALL of our local markets are ongoing - we have the once a month markets, like the Sunshine Coast Collective Markets or the special-occasion markets, like the December Night Markets in Eumundi. With the Festive Season beginning and everybody out and about, busy with Christmas shopping, I thought a heads-up as to what markets are ongoing in December and January, could be helpful. Surely, we all love to shop before, during and after the Festive Season!

Here's an alphabetical list of the markets that have weekly dates in December and January, with most being Twilight Markets, except for the Caloundra Street Fair, which is during the day on a Sunday.

🛍 Caloundra Street Fair
Bulock Street, Caloundra
Every Sunday | 8.00am to 1.00pm

Caloundra Street Fair is a Sunshine Coast icon that runs throughout the whole year! Set under a stunning canopy of the tree-lined main street, surrounded by cafe's, boutiques and speciality shops, makes the Caloundra Street Fair a special place to shop - especially in the heat of summer!

The Caloundra Street Fair has over two hundred unique stalls, each offering something special. Enjoy fresh local food and flowers, tasty breakfasts, coffee, lunch and decadent sweet treats. There's always a wonderfully friendly vibe with activities for children, handcrafted produce, live street entertainment and even street theatre. And, lucky us, we have the Caloundra Street Fair all year round!

🛍 Coolum Beach Twilight Markets
Tickle Park, Coolum Beach
1 December to 19 January | 4.00pm to 8.00pm every Friday

Coolum Beach Real Estate are the proud sponsors of the Coolum Beach Twilight Markets. The Coolum Beach Twilight Markets offer more than sixty unique stalls in a stunning location, right on the vibrant Coolum beachfront.

All funds raised at these Twilight Markets support the local Coolum Beach Lioness Club, who in turn, make donations to several local groups who need support. I just love these markets, where you know you can shop till you drop, and all for a worthwhile cause! Try explaining that one to your partner!

🛍 December Night Markets
Eumundi Markets, Eumundi
8 December to 22 December | 5.00pm to 9.00pm

Eumundi December Night Markets are only on for three Fridays - don't miss out! Image: Eumundi Markets FB


We all love the Original Eumundi Markets, but as most regular market-goers will know, the Eumundi Markets are usually only open twice a week during the year, on a Wednesday and a Saturday. But, with Christmas coming up, the Eumundi Markets have their special December Night Markets on every Friday night up until Christmas.

Enjoy some retail therapy under the stars. Santa will make an appearance on each of these Friday nights, arriving in dramatic style, by fire truck! There will be food from all corners of the globe, live music, street performers and even FREE outdoor movies! Come rain, hail or shine, the December Night Markets are only on for three Fridays - make sure you don't miss out!

🛍 Twilight Markets Caloundra
The Esplanade, Caloundra
8 December to 26 January | 5.00pm to 9.00pm every Friday

The Twilight Markets Caloundra definitely fall into the 'special-occasion' category and during the Christmas and New Year holiday period, are being held every Friday up to and including Australia Day!

With fun and entertainment for the whole family, the Twilight Markets Caloundra provide a fantastic opportunity to get the family out and about. These markets feature more than one hundred totally unique stalls with everything one can imagine - street food, gourmet sweets, fashion, jewellery, fun activities for the children, live music and street performers. During the Christmas period Santa will be visiting too!

Have fun shopping, market-goers!
