Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic market, food, gifts etc. well worth a trip on the Number 4 or 10 bus from town. The smells from the food stalls is out of this world!

Always great food and interesting market stalls. A must see for any tourist. Fresh juice or Lassi, or a Laksa - great no matter which stall you choose.

The food is always good at Parap Markets. The place has a great vibe and lots of things to see. It's the perfect way to spend your Saturday morning, drifting around the markets, trying the food and enjoying the sun.

These markets were great - a much better proportion of food stalls to product stalls. Still a bit crowded but more manageable ( eg queues not as bad). Nice Vietnamese iced coffee, good food options. Would def go again. Mindil - I won’t.

Lots of great food stalls and also had fresh Asian produce and clothes etc. a nice community atmosphere. A bit crowded due to proximity of stalls to each other.

Offering an array of fresh food, plants, jewellery, clothes, craft etc - there is something for everyone! I recommend being there early - they open at 8am - as it gets busier after 9/10am.

Something for everyone. We went particularly for Mary’s Laksa and we’re not disappointed. Mary herself served us. Even though I don’t think I have ever been hotter the Laksa was delicious. If you do nothing else in Darwin visit for the Laksa. Once the Mindil Beach Markets are on there is more choice but in the wet this is your best option.

Saying that lots of other Pop up and permanent shops worth a visit. Was a nice surprise on our trip.
