On a day when the sun is shining and you have 30 minutes to kill, an enjoyable walk through the many stalls. Whilst colourful and interesting, this market is typically what you would expect from a Beachside market. The food stalls however are pretty good, you can't go past the Gozleme, but be prepared to queue up ! I wouldn't... More

Love these markets. They are professionally run, with lots to see, hear, eat and do! Gorgeous handcrafted stalls, with so many delightful treasures to buy! Nothing better than meandering through the many different stalls and checking out the stunning things clever Coasties have made. I truly believe this is the markets that have revitalized the market scene on the coast!... More

Great variety of stalls and food. Only complaint I would have is that parking can be a little on the difficult side - but that's because the markets are so popular!!!!! Highly Recommend a visit - on the 4th Sunday of every month.

Interesting hand made goods, alot of them imported. Free bus runs from Avoca Beach Hotel, where there is a fair amount of parking. I enjoy the savoury pastries and often wander down early to grab some. It does cause alot of congestion and there are some parking issues by 10am. It is best to arrive around 8am if driving and...

These markets are hyped to be better than they really are. The idea was good, and designed to be in a largely populated area, however there really isn't enough variety to keep patrons returning and is aimed more at tourists who are staying near Avoca Beach. The positive side of the stalls is that the items being sold are genuine... More

A good selection of gourmet food, arts and crafts, clothing and some second hand stalls. Probably upper end of the market price range but some interesting items. Some great musical entertainment is usually on with local artists, worth it just for that. Parking is difficult especially in holiday periods. A good trick is to park at North Avoca and walk...

The markets were a great combination of food, fun stalls, great fruit, and collection of wonderful wares displayed for sale. The atmosphere was family friendly, the music entertainment awesome and the place just a great place to be.
