Yungaburra Markets this weekend!



I'm looking forward to going along to the Yungaburra markets this weekend, I love the old fashioned charm of this monthly market, with the stalls filled with home made crafts, home grown vegetables and freshly prepared jams and preserves.

The Yungaburra Market is the biggest and oldest market on the Atherton Tablelands, just west of Cairns.

On one day each month, local producers gather on the commons in the middle of the historic village of Yungaburra to sell fresh produce, flowers, local wines, wooden furniture, clothing and just about anything else you can think of.

From January to November, the markets are held on the 4th Saturday of the month. The December Market - usually the biggest of the year - is specially scheduled to ensure it falls prior to Christmas eve.

The Market runs from 7:30am to 12:30pm.
