Mackay Showground Markets

6am-10am Every Saturday

The biggest weekly markets with many stalls offering crafts, potted plants, seedlings and herbs, local produce such as fruit and vegetables, and seafood. Most of the stallholders are local to the region. Admission to the market is free. The Showground Markets are well known in Mackay as they have been running for about 40 years and have about 2000-3000 people attend each week. Importantly, the markets have the same stallholders and attract regular customers wanting to buy a particular home-made sauce or cake or item. Plenty of parking available. For stall information, please phone Skye on 0447 917 763.
