Brisbane's Best Food Markets & Weekend Markets | G&G

Brisbane's best markets

Brisbane Markets

In the market for a new weekend market? Good thing Brisbane is teeming with them, spanning from the suburbs to the city, sized both big and small!

As little piggies who love going to the market, rest assured The G&G knows all about the local scene—from where to find the odd rambutan or four-for-the-price-of-one mangoes, to bagging avocados that aren’t Shepherds (fess up peeps—we all know Hass is better).

Ditch the single-use plastic and don the overalls, Brisbane – it’s time to shop.


Fish Lane’s Wandering Cooks is giving Brisbanites the opportunity to purchase produce directly from local growers and producers at their weekly Urban Produce Market. Head straight to The Farm Gate and load up on produce from the same farms and suppliers that supply to some Brisbane’s best restaurants, or peruse the range of zero-waste preserves and ferments. Better yet, coffee and ready-to-eat goodies are always available courtesy of the Wandering Cooks team!

DAVIES PARK MARKETS ǀ WEST END | Saturdays, 6 am–2 pm

West End has a food market as eclectic as the locals? How bazaar, how bazaar. Seriously though, when it comes to combining live music and flawless coffee straight from a mysterious gypsy van, West End’s Davies Park Markets can’t be beat. Aside from an awesome range of fresh produce, our beau Davies also serves up great ready-to-eat goods for you to enjoy while stretched out on the park’s endless green spaces, like extravagant plates of paella, steaming gozleme, and classic rostis loaded with all the breaky classics.

MILTON MARKETS ǀ MILTON | Sundays, 6 am–12 pm

Hop on to your magic hemp carpets and prepare to ride into a whole new world at Milton Market –things are about to get continental. Open every Sunday underneath the leafy canopy outside Milton’s Royal Thai Orchid restaurant, fan-favourite stalls at this marketplace are packed with doughy Hungarian langos, sweet Portuguese tarts, and flaked-to-perfection French almond croissants. Chuck in a range of produce, live music, easy parking, and hey presto! Milton, here we come. 


After an eco-friendly market that’s so ferry good, you don’t need a car to get there? Stroll on into the Powerhouse on a Saturday for a jam-packed Jan Powers farmers market day! Once you’re done perusing all the great produce, flowers, and deli goods, be sure to grab a coffee and delicious treat (French pizza, anyone?) from any one of the food vendors lining the way. 

BRISBANE CITY MARKETS ǀ QUEEN STREET | Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 am

Work in the CBD? Clear your lunch break for the Brisbane City Markets, popping up at Reddacliff Place on Wednesdays until 4 pm, or at Cathedral Square on Thursdays until 2 pm! Think bagels, pasta, smoked meats and international cuisine, alongside produce and seafood caught fresh that morning.  Our tip? Return at the end of the day for the best fruit and veg at dirt cheap prices. 

BRISBANE VEGAN MARKETS | WEST END | Second and fourth Saturdays of the month, 9 am–3 pm

Whether you’re a recent convert, or you’ve been living a vegan lifestyle for decades, there’s a market for you! Brisbane’s only plant-based and cruelty-free markets, Brisbane Vegan Market, is on twice a month on the corner of Russell and Boundary streets. You can expect vegan food, drinks and products, and lots of cute pups to pat! 


When rounding up Brisbane’s most epic markets, we simply HAD to mention Brisbane’s big kahuna at Rocklea. Head in for some of Brisbane’s best squeezed orange juice, baby greens, Bagel Boys creations, and the Roesti Revolution van at the Saturday Fresh Market, or opt for the Sunday Discovery Market where local musicians and 380 stalls of hidden treasures always bring a crowd. 


If you live on the north side of Brissy and you’ve never been to the Carseldine Markets, what are you doing!? With farm-fresh produce, gorgeous seafood and premium meats, and heaps of food stalls, these markets are a foodie’s dream! Throw in artisan gifts, fashion, and jewellery, and free parking and entry and you have a perfect Saturday. 

Enough stall-ing, more carting it to your nearest market today!
