Carrara Market

Carrara Markets have been established on the Gold Coast for over 30 years and have become a virtual ‘must do’ when visiting the Gold Coast. Over the years the markets have become a bargain hunters paradise drawing weekend crowds of over 25 000 people, providing just about everything but the kitchen sink (and probably those as well!).

There are over 500 stalls with plant nurseries, fruit and vegetables, butchers, bakeries and fish shop. As well as clothing, shoes, arts and crafts, watches, jewellery, and tools, just to name a few.

Breakfasts start from 7am with snacks, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages and lunch being available from a variety of outlets and stalls.

Children are well catered for with the family fun lane offering a vast array of entertainment and activities such as face painting, pony rides, a merry-go-round and roaming clown with balloons.

A fantastic day out for the whole family with lots to see and do and buy.
