There’s a market on somewhere in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland region on any given weekend, selling fresh locally grown and made produce, plants and crafts. Here is a selection of our favourite weekend markets, farmers markets, country and community markets in the area. Information last updated: 30 Sept 2017.
Maleny Arts Crafts and Collectables, Sunday 8am to 2pm, RSL Hall opposite the pub, Bunya St, Maleny. Small but cute market, and undercover! Great for arts and crafts, antiques and collectables, books, jewellery, candles, soap, jams and pickles, hot food, massage, and fresh foods.
Eumundi Markets, Wednesday 8am to 1.30pm, and Saturday 7am to 2pm, 80 Memorial Dr, Eumundi. Great for original artworks and homewares, sculptures, furniture, handmade toys, skincare, fashion and jewellery. Fresh fruit and vegetables, breads, cheeses and yogurts. 65 kms from Artisan Spa Views, lovely rural scenic drive via Conondale and Kenilworth.
Yandina Plants and Produce Market, Saturday, 6am to midday, Yandina Sports Grounds, Wonga Park. Great for cheap plants and fresh and organic fruit and veg!

First Saturday every month (except January), Crystal Waters Country Market, 8am to 1pm, 65 Kilcoy Lane Conondale.
