How much fun is it strolling through a market full of delicious food cooked up right in front of you?
A diverse range of traditional and modern cuisines is sure to get the belly rumbling. Let the market flavours waft through you nose, as you somehow narrow your choices down to one or two dishes. Here’s what we reckon are the Top 3 Best Food Markets on the Gold Coast.
1. Miami Marketta
Easily the most popular food markets on the Gold Coast. Live music, a few bars, an array of international cuisine and plenty of seating. Located in the unassuming backstreets of the Miami industrial area, a short stroll from the Gold Coast Hwy, is Miami Marketta. The food and atmosphere will blow your mind. All plates are around $10 on Fridays and Saturdays and even cheaper feeds on Wednesday – Tapas night.
Friday – 5pm – 10pm
Saturday – 4pm – 10pm
Wednesday 5pm – 9pm
23 Hillcrest Parade, Miami
2. Emerald Lakes Markets
Beautiful surrounds and diverse food makes this one of the best food markets on the Coast. There’s always some great local music talent playing some tunes while you enjoy a nice dinner in this serene setting. This is a very well-run market place that just seems to get bigger every week. Locals love it!
3pm – 7pm every Thursday
The Boulevard, Emerald Lakes, Carrara
3. Chinatown Street Market, Southport
Finally! Some awesome Asian-inspired markets on the Coast. This is a much needed cultural hit for our city. Don’t think that it’s limited to a Chinese influence either; these markets include a range of delights from Phillipines to Thailand and Vietnam and Japan. There’s a real buzz around these markets, with restaurants staying open late and some even hosting stalls!
