Carrara Markets opens every Saturday and Sunday with over 400 stalls offering fashion, jewellery, toys, souvenirs, homewares, artworks, phones, and phones accessories to name just some. There is also a secondhand market area.
The market has been running for 30 years or so and not only has the traditional day market on the weekend but also night markets on Friday and Saturday nights. Another new addition is the car boot sale every Sunday morning where you can come across all kinds of trash and treasure.
The market is easy to navigate and not so huge that you’ll need a map or chance getting lost.
Food and Restaurants
A popular feature is the growers market offering fresh fruit and veg direct from the farm. There is also a large range of cafes and eateries onsite. Cafe Carrara and Tommy’s Wok are popular options here.
Outside of Carrara Markets and nearby on the other side of Aldi is Good Pho You serving Vietnamese cuisine. Near the intersection of Market St you’ll find The Back Page which is a bar and grill that’s popular with locals.
