The “Tamborine Mountain Country Markets” are held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at the Tamborine Mountain Showgrounds at the roundabout Main Western Road and Bartle Road in Mount Tamborine.
The market offers a huge range of fresh fruit and vegetables, wonderful locally produced cheeses, plants, herbs, flowers, coffee, arts and crafts, collectibles, garden ornaments, clothing, a myriad of home made things and delicious temptations of all kinds.
And if all this makes you hungry, there is plenty of food to eat right then, there’s excellent coffee, proffertjes (Dutch pancakes), German sausages (try the “Knackwurst” with mustard – yum!) or be tempted by baked jacket potatoes or fresh corn on the cob.
Usually there’s a singer or performer on the gazebo stage, giving these markets a relaxing country atmosphere. Large shady trees keep you cool in summer, and some open areas allow you to soak in the sun on cooler days.
Little kids can have pony rides or play in the kids’ castle area, or have some fun with the small kid’s car ride. The “Tamborine Mountain County Markets” are definitely family-friendly, sometimes several dozen prams are seen parked in the eatery area!
