Located at the Eidbunpin Lagoon, they're a nice afternoon out. This is an undiscovered part of Brisbane, a quiet little seaside area that is only 30 minutes from the CBD. The community of local businesses are happy to stop and chat with visitors, and it's all a little more relaxed.
The Sandgate Village Markets are the best markets in Sandgate. On once a month on a Saturday, they run from 2pm. It makes a lovely day out to have lunch by the water and then wander the markets.
They have lots of local arts and crafts, handmade goods, plenty of kids activities and buskers to add a great atmosphere. See their Facebook page for the latest details on stall holders and children's entertainment.
The markets are set by the Eidbunpin Lagoon, a lovely place to bring a picnic blanket and enjoy an afternoon by the water with the kids.
