Brisbane is a vibrant, metropolitan city with a laid-back, small-town feel, and no other Brisbane neighbourhood and suburbs embraces this best-of-both-worlds spirit like downtown. The markets section contains some of our most popular event content. Brisbane is blessed with many wonderful markets, scattered across the suburbs and appealing to many tastes.
For arts and crafts…
The weekly South Bank Lifestyle Market offers an eclectic array of beautiful crafts, fashion, health and lifestyle products, jewellery and homewares.
FRIDAY 5pm – 10pm
SATURDAY 10am – 5pm
SUNDAY 9am – 5pm
And the Riverside at the Pier Market is one of Brisbane’s first markets and still one of the best places to find well-priced original pieces of jewellery, paintings, and other local and imported handicrafts.
