Brisbanites turned out in their thousands for a first look at the much-loved Eagle Farm Market’s $1.5 million makeover, over the weekend.

The new bigger and better market site was unveiled to public in a morning of celebrations that included live music, pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting and more than 350 lucky door prizes.

Market goers browsed over 150 gourmet, lifestyle and fresh produce stalls and soaked up the winter sunshine in the all new dining precinct.

The Eagle Farm Markets is open every Sunday between 7am and 12.30pm at 230 Lancaster Rd, Ascot.
