On Sundays the market becomes 'Rusty's Bazaar' and the range of bric-a-brac and arts and crafts is even greater.

  (Cairns) Rusty's Markets
Rusty's Markets have been running for more than 30 years, developed from a humble display of 6 stall holders to one of the largest, most successfull and best known markets in Australia. The markets run from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon, with 180 stallholders selling flowers, delicatessen goods, and a wide array of quality fruit and vegetables that come directly from the growers. But although the market is widely known for its quality food products, you will also find jewellery, clothing, gem stones, organic personal care products, leatherwear, medicinal herbs and spices, second hand goods and much more.

On Sundays the market becomes 'Rusty's Bazaar' and the range of bric-a-brac and arts and crafts is even greater.

Rusty's Markets were named after the late Emrys 'Rusty' Rees, who was responsible for the development of the market into the superb event that it is nowadays. Save some of your time to enjoy a shopping experience in a carnival like environment.
