With over 60 stalls, there is plenty of variety, and plenty of things for the whole family to see and do. For families with kids, the face painting is always a treat, as are the sweets and toy stalls and the lucky dips. The children's playground is also nearby, while the safe swimming beach at Stansbury is awaiting sandcastle builders and swimmers alike.
Food and drink stalls are numerous and combine to provide a menu of choice that defeats even the largest deli. Bacon and Egg Rolls are a popular item earlier in the day, with the cakes dominating mid-way through the day before the gigantic sausage rolls and other warm pastries provide a rousing intake for the lunchtime crowd.
Other packaged food items to take home with you include the traditional jams, preserves and nuts, a majestic range of sauces and chutneys from Grunds, spices from the Tymar Spice House, Kalamata olives and olive oil from Elia Olives, shortbread and other biscuits, several types of breads and the very popular Stansbury Oysters stall where fresh unshucked oysters are available. Fresh fruit and vegetables are also available from a couple of vendors.
Other stalls include jewellery, accessories, gifts, candles, arts and crafts, fashion, bric-a-brac, books,placemats and tools. Some of the more unique items, with a local and seaside theme, typically come from some of the craft stalls where fish, sea creatures, seashells and other sea delights are prepared or from the local Alpaca store where various woollen products are available.
Clothes are also popular in many other forms with dresses, skirts, pants, t-shirts, hats, caps and scarves found amongst numerous stalls, both new and secondhand. Accessories also include belts, bags and purses, so it looks as though it is possible to come away with a complete new outfit after visiting these markets.
Being located in a tourist town on the water's edge gives an opportunity for the Stansbury Museum and the Stansbury Progress Association to host a BBQ / tourism information stall, while the local Fishwatch team also have a stall explaining the where-for-alls in respect of boating and fishing on the Yorke Peninsula. The couple of stalls with fishing rods and associated gear are also very popular.
