On the Gold Coast and in throughout Northern NSW, there are so many markets nowadays to choose from. There are arts and craft markets, food markets and bric-a-brac markets; we are spoilt! They are a great place to support your local business, soak up the atmosphere and buy some quality and health supplies for the week.
I have been to a few although I still have so many more to explore. My current favourites around Tweed Heads West area are:
