As proven by the Gold Coast’s plethora of markets selling a wide range of goods, Australians love to shop. Make sure to visit these markets and buy like a local while visiting our lovely coastal city.

If you want to know where the locals shop for the best local designs and holiday souvenirs, you’ll find them at these markets;

Burleigh Heads Art and Craft Markets

Let’s begin with the city’s oldest art and craft market. It’s been over 30 years since the Burleigh Heads Art and Craft Markets first opened their doors. The market has attracted many locals and visitors since its inception.

Pop over to Justin’s Park off The Esplanade, approximately a 7-10 min walk – if you wish to be included in that list. The Burleigh Art and Craft Market stretches from 1st to 3rd Avenue, containing over 100 stalls. So get ready for an excellent shopping adventure, and don’t forget to bring your eco friendly bag. Locally made arts, crafts, fashion, jewellery, and skincare are available at the market. Fresh produce, preserves, cookies, cakes, and homewares are also available. There is something for everyone.

The market has a COVID safe strategy to ensure you enjoy a pleasant shopping experience. The Burleigh Art and Craft Markets are open every last Sunday of the month, weather permitting, from 8 AM to 2 PM.

Burleigh Farmers Market

For all things fresh, visit the Burleigh Farmers Market, which is open every Saturday from 7 AM. Fresh farm produce, organic fruits and vegetables, gourmet meals, and other deli items are available at this weekend market. There are also fresh flowers, plants, antiques, arts & crafts, and more.

Yes, the market also has live entertainment featuring a diverse range of local talent. After doing your morning shopping, treat yourself to a local cup of coffee and baked goodies while enjoying the show. Burleigh Farmers Market is located at Lower Gold Coast Hwy corner of West Burleigh Rd, a great place to spend a Saturday morning whilst holidaying with us at 2nd Avenue Apartments Burleigh Heads.

The Village Markets provide a handpicked selection of art, beauty, fashion, lifestyle and vintage booths, as well as pre-loved designer and vintage Rack Sales, street cuisine, live music, and of course, good vibes.

The Market Co. GC

For almost two decades, The Market Co. GC initially Your Local Markets has been organising the bustling farmers’ markets on the Gold Coast. They’ve been bringing together local Gold Coast farmers, producers, artisans, and the general public to connect over fresh food. The Market Co. GC is also a proud supporter of local musicians and books live acts at both of their markets each week while also providing space for buskers.
