Whenever I am on the Gold Coast I always take a trip to Carrara Markets. I love the variety of goods - and the cheap fresh fruit and vegetables. Also I've bought shoes, hats, sheets, clothes, makeup, ornaments, garden items, jewelry, clocks, plus sequins & feathers!!! As well as that, I have had clothes altered by a talented lady, at very reasonable prices, situated near the side car park. They also have the cheapest breakfasts in town! So visiting is a MUST - and a pleasant day out :)
Always love coming to this place in the weekend. Variety of shops and food options. Nice crowd. Good fun for kids. My daughter loves the pony ride. Sunday ferl great here.
A great place to grab a big breakfast on the weekend before wandering through the variety of market stalls. Steer clear of the South African🇿🇦Cafe in the Big Shed as they're slow, disorganised, the food quality is wanting and cold, the service slow and bumbling. The cafes in the centre of the market are a far better bet, offering good service, value and food. Stalls can tend to cater somewhat to the tourist but not overwhelming so and there are some great bargains to be had and content you won't see elsewhere making a visit well worthwhile.
I was pleasantly surprised by the markets and how cheap everything was! The quality of the the items was also not bad. The only place I wasn't too fond of was the Cafe that did deli style food, wasn't expecting a cold jelly pork pie.
Done a grest job of cleaning the markets up. New toilet facilities and nice clean eateries. They are trying really hard. Sooooooo hot though in spring let alone summer, not a slight breeze anywhere.
