Gold Coast markets are one of the most popular ways to shop and are a quintessential part of any visit to the coast. From art and craft markets to famer's markets and even car boot sales, visitors and locals alike enjoy leisurely strolling through row upon row of stalls selling everything from artwork and handicrafts to skin care, knick knacks, toys and locally grown produce. With daytime and night markets held almost every weekend, there's always time to pop in for some live entertainment, street food and a spot of shopping. A great way to pick up some souvenirs, the Gold Coast markets are an icon in this beachside destination and are a must-see on any Gold Coast holiday.
