More than just fruit and veg
Nerang Farmers Market
There's a small weekly Farmers Market in Nerang that holds a number of surprise offerings to the market shopper. Fruit and veg are the obvious stalls you would visit for and they don't disappoint, with a good selection on offer fresh strawberries, nectarines and cherries were all in season when I was there between Christmas and New Year. Then I discovered the most gorgeous flowers especially the proteas, Danish pastries, miniature eggplants, bottles of ginger & apple juice, herbs, spices and teas, meats and seafood and even dog treats.

The atmosphere was good with great live music from Mexicano Jackie McDonald. Once I'd browsed all the food stalls, there were more discoveries to be made. I found everything from stunning silk dresses, African baskets and metal art to Kenyan recycled paper earrings.

The market is located in Lavelle Street. We found easy parking at the bottom of Lavelle, in Nerang Street. There's a park (Bischof Pioneer Park) opposite the market, with a good play area if you have a young family that are likely to tire of shopping.

The market is open every Sunday from 6.30am 12 noon and their leaflet says they are there: "rain, hail or shine". It offers a lovely mix of fresh fruit and veggies direct from the farms, mixed with meat, fish, dairy & deli along with bakery, arts & crafts.

It's not a big day out but if you live in the area or are passing, drop in, you won't be disappointed. It's a great way to support local growers and artisans and find something that's a little different.

Your Comment
If you're looking for some great markets very close to Brisbane CBD you should check out the Boggo Rd Markets at Dutton Park, also on Sunday mornings. Great food, great coffee, terrific arts, crafts and clothing, fresh fruit and veg including organics direct from the farm. Chill out as you listen to great musicians and while you are there you can have an entertaining and informative tour of Brisbane's notorious Boggo Rd gaol. A great way to spend a Sunday morning.

Thanks for the great article on Nerang Markets. Can`t believe I have never been there. Will have to rectify that in the near future.
