The Gladstone Quality Markets on the third Sunday of every month from 9am to 2pm are one of the region’s most popular markets, and are a great day out for the whole family.
Held on the banks of the Macleay River opposite the Heritage Hotel of Gladstone, the market hosts quality, local, hand-picked stallholders who offer art, ceramics, handmade soaps and organic beauty products, and gourmet foods such as jams, preserves, farm fresh produce, sourdough bread and locally made muesli.
There’s also barista coffee, buffalo gelato and cheeses, locally smoked fish products (including yellow-fin tuna and trout) and gourmet pies. Green thumbs will love the selection of native plants and there is live entertainment by local musicians and performers, as well as regular face-painting and a jumping castle for the kids.
Come and find that special something or fill a picnic basket with the tasty local treats on offer, find a shady spot on the riverbank and spend the day enjoying the friendly atmosphere and entertainment. Whatever you do, don’t miss it!
