We arrived in Cairns very early Saturday morning - what to do? Visit Rusty's Market of course! This is mostly a fresh fruit and vegie market but it has other stalls as well including breakfast and souvenirs. We knew what we wanted but it took a while to find the guy who has coconuts and cuts them open so you... More

I live in cairns and work in the city and visit rusty's every Friday. Love walking through all the fresh produce and trying all the different dishes on offer. We also do our shopping here when we can, the bread is amazing and the fruit and vegetables so much more flavoursome than the supermarket!!

If you intend to eat fresh goodies while in Cairns don't miss out on a visit to Rusty's markets. The produce will leave you salivating. The fresh flowers are great also. Apparently Sunday after 12 is a great time to shop (we missed that but still amazing).

Quite a good market with loads of local produce. Exotic fruits and stall holders willing to tell you what they have to sell and help you identify produce.

Funny how the simplest things can enhance your holiday. Look for the outside coconut stalls in Sheridan street. The first is very entertaining watching coconuts being opened `Survivor' style and delivered to customers with a straw in for drinking. The second was serving shaved coconut in a half shell with honey. Yummy and only $2.

Rusty's offers a great atmosphere and is well structured. There is plenty of choice for self-caterers, but also cooked food for breakfast or lunch and accessories. It was great to see local food, try food with all natural ingredients or just enjoy a fresh juice. People at the stalls are friendly and smiling. The experience was much better than Sydney's... More

Spent a great Sunday morning browsing the markets. So many fresh produce, hot food, clothing and jewellery stalls. Bought some lovely tropical fruit at such a low price.
