Cairns Night Markets

Each night when the sun sets, Cairns Night Markets come alive. Featuring over seventy retail outlets and home to a myriad of food options, Cairns Night Markets are the perfect place to grab dinner and hunt for a bargain. The hustle and bustle of the market in the open air setting makes for an electrifying shopping experience.

In 1991, Hayden Redfern and Elise Warring noticed the increasing demand from tourists to purchase locally made goods so they set about creating an open air market in Cairns. The creators drew their inspiration from the open air markets in Hawaii and South East Asia, but underestimated the popularity they would have with both locals and tourists alike. They temporarily gave the space a term of six months with only 28 vendors but soon they had over 100 vendors knocking on their door.

Cairns Night Markets

Whatever you are into, the Cairns Night Market will be sure to have something that grabs your attention. Opals, pearls, silver, clothing, massage oils, t-shirts, arts, crafts, Australian food products, plenty of souvenirs and gifts, just to name a few.

Featuring cuisine from all over the world, take your pick from one of the Italian, Chinese, Thai, and Japanese food outlets followed by a coffee in one of the numerous coffee outlets or sweet treat from the ice creamery.

The Cairns Night Markets are located at 71-75 The Esplanade and are open daily from 5.00pm - 11.00pm.

Farm gate Market

At the weekly Farm gate Market you will find the freshest and finest quality products the region has to offer. Not only will you get to devour some tasty organic treats, you will be supporting local farmers, fishermen, and food producers.

The Farm gate Market is adamant that stakeholders must maintain to a local farmer only policy. The philosophy they follow is that the food will not only be fresher is it has traveled a short distance to market, but that during the transport process, less greenhouses gasses have been released into the atmosphere than if the products had been trucked in from a location hours away.

Most locals divide their weekly shopping trip between the Farm gate and Rusty's Markets. While they can purchase goods that are both better tasting, and better for them than those found in supermarkets, it is no wonder why people get up early on the weekends to ensure they have first pick of the fine fare on offer.

Sulphur free seafood, organic breads and cakes, native conserves and pickles, chocolate, coconut and sugar cane juice, herbs, and fruit and vegetables are just some of the delicious goods sold at the Farm gate Market.

The Farm gate Market is held every Saturday from 7.30am - 2.00pm at the Pier at the Marina.
