There are several reasons to love the Woodridge Sunday markets. The official name is the Woodridge Train Station Markets as they are right next to the train station so it is of course great for public transport users.
There is also a great selection of fresh fruit and vegetables at great prices. You can see many locals leaving with all their fruit and vegetables for the week.
Another reason is that Woodridge and the surrounding suburbs are where many people from refugee backgrounds choose to first live in Brisbane. Walking around the markets will allow you to see many different cultures that are normally underrepresented in Brisbane.
However the best reason to go to the Woodridge markets is the street food. It is as if all of South East Asia has come to one place to open food stalls. There are of course many different styles of noodles, varieties of ways to fry chicken and pork, and lots of other favourite delicacies you may have sampled on your trips to Asia but are difficult to find anywhere else in Brisbane.
The "WOODRIDGE TRAIN STATION MARKETS" have been operating in the same area for over nine years and are now an iconic Sunday Street Market known all over Brisbane and surrounding areas for there fresh fruits and vegetables, many not widly available elsewhere, and also the "INTERNATIONAL HOT FOODS COURT" where dishes are prepared fresh while you wait.
The Street Markets are organised and mannaged by ETHNIC COMMUNITIES COUNCIL of LOGAN Inc (ECCL) The "KALEIDOSCOPE- a multicultural street festival" is also held every year in the middle of May at the same venue.
