    These markets have it all! Mum and I spent over 2 hours wandering up and down the markets. Plenty of fresh fruit, veg and flowers, coffee and brunch options, clothing stalls old and new, and loads of ...  more »

    We can't resist this gem of a market. We enjoy the bustling vibe as friendly locals mingle in and around the various stalls. We love to sip our coffee as we sit by the river listening to the free musi...  more »

  • I want to give this place more starts but the amount of people there really kills it. Food vendors are excellent (shout out to the guy who wears the sweet hat cooking the Dutch pizza kind of things!!!) the fruit and veg is top quality and a good price and the meat vendor at the end of the long strip of stalls on the western side of Davies park is really good. But holy s#%@ is the crowds.
  • Love these markets. The variety and freshness of the fruit & veg is top notch. You buy stuff here that lasts a lot longer than the same from a supermarket. Some great craft stalls. I have lots of colourful $5 earrings from one of the stalls. Good for breakfast or lunch or brunch, especially if you buy the very filling bacon and egg roll with hollandaise... yum.
  • Always love markets and Davies Park markets is one if the best. Walk along the riverside to the market and then grab great fresh fruit and vegetables. I recommend a visit to the Curry Puff lady! Sooo much good food I've even upped my rating.
  • How to reach : I would suggest go by bus. If traveling from City route 60 is best way to travel. Every 15 min. Timing : market is open from 6 am to 2 pm on Saturday. I would suggest go before 11 to get what you are looking for. What you get ? Fresh fruits and vegetables straight from farm. Lots of other things like cloths, decorative items, jewellers and many fresh food outlets. You can also buy fresh sea food like living muddy crabs. It is worth ? Absolutely you get things a much better price compare to big supermakets. Some of the veggies you won't get in super market. It offers lot including Preferred vegetable by most Indian and Asians. Car parking : you have park car 2 to 3 streets away from park however it is free free. Some effort is required to search parking for first time. How to take best: shop fresh and eat fresh. If traveling by bus finish shopping in 1 hour and save one side fare. :) Like if find review worth.
  • Davies Park Market is the best farmers market I've found in Brisbane city over the past year. The selection is great, and competition between vendors of produce seems to drive the prices down as the day goes on. Not only does this market have *by far* the best prices on produce around, the selection seems to be much fresher than several of the other markets that I visit. The beginning and end of the market are where the majority of the deals are on produce, with the middle offering a number of food carts. One of my favorites for a delicious, cheap snack is the unassuming Curry Puff cart. It doesn't look like much, but the friendly owners sell fresh made and absolutely delicious little pastries for only $1.50. Just behind this is another favorate of mine--the stand selling some wonderful fresh fruit smoothies. There might be slightly more selection to early-birds, but I've always felt like the perfect time to arrive is around 12:00. It's just before the vendors begin packing up, and all of them are anxious to sell the rest of their produce. Prices are often slashed on the still-great selection.
