Called into Carrara Markets today (9/12) and being honest was a little disappointed. Having been a regular to the markets on family holidays over many years, I found the quantity of stalls was not what it once was; and I think this was was reflected...More
A large selection of built 'stalls and sheds', combining them all together to make up the markets. Not your traditional temporary shade structured country markets, As most just pull down the roller doors at end of day and go home. But all in all a...More
Was there bout 7ish in the morning. Plenty of parking then and some stalls were not open yet. Spend bout 40 minutes and was out then. Only thing I enjoy is the groceries. Crowd was coming in then bout 8 plus. Prefer other markets.
In the big scheme of things nothing to rave about.
Yes large and car parking can be difficult.
Lots of the same old same old though there are a few unique stalls.
Very quiet on the Sunday we were there - a fairly warm day....More
First time for a number of years. The quality and the overall feeling was not good. The individual Organic Farmers markets are much better value. Honestly the overall price is higher but definitely worth it.
We were glad it wasn’t too busy because I imagine that would make or break and experience. Lots of funky stalls with all sorts to shop around for. Kids enjoyed the petting zoo also. Lots of food choices too. Make sure to take cash because...More

The Markets are open on Saturday and Sunday from 7am. There's lots to do like a reptile park, rides for the kids and an animal farm. Parking is easy with plenty of space or public transport with the bus passing right by the Markets. Plenty of shops and stalls to spend money in and quite a few cafes and restaurants to eat in. The best Cafe I'd Cafe Carrara a five star rated establishment that serves the best coffee and freshly cooked delicious food.
Hope you enjoy when you make that trip.
There's a Psychic and Spiritual fair on in the Arena on Mother's Day with fortunes being told and lots of things associated to purchase. Good luck hope this was helpful.
It’s free entry, and free to park your car in either the Manchester road Carpark or the Market street carpark. Plenty of parking and an enjoyable day. Recommend Cafe Carrara for a meal or during, best coffee in the markets... More
It’s free entry, and free to park your car in either the Manchester road Carpark or the Market street carpark. Plenty of parking and an enjoyable day. Recommend Cafe Carrara for a meal or during, best coffee in the markets and everything cooked fresh. They were recently rated five star by the GCCC.
Enjoy your day.
