Organic street markets provide the opportunity for children to really understand the ‘paddock to plate’ and sustainability philosophies. Organic produce is free from the kinds of chemicals you often find in supermarket produce. It is grown, packaged and sold with the intention to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible.

Organic street markets often also have non-food related products that may be of interest to your family. Candles to art work to home wares and more – there will always be plenty to find that will excite and engage your children in a different kind of shopping process. There is often live entertainment as well from local musicians and performers – truly something for everyone.

Northey St Organic Market

Northey St Organic Market is incredible! Coffee, a wide range of fruits and vegetables, eggs, honey, fair trade everything and music performers! There is also a cute little farm attached to the markets. This is definitely a great choice for Brisbane families. The markets can get busy – there is parking inside the area but if that fills up you’ll have to park on the street. Be cautious about signage as there are parking inspectors and you don’t want to add that cost to your shop!

Hours: Every Sunday, 6am – 11am

Address: 54 Northey St, Windsor

Nundah Farmers Market
