This was a great little market. The fresh food would have been bought if we had not been travelling home that day. The island booklets, postcards etc were very entertaining and the handmade soap and convict lollies were winners.

My sister and I have recently visited Norfolk Island, in July 2013. We loved every minute of our stay, and we know we didn't see all of it thoroughly enough. We didn't get to the Sunday Markets, didn't find out about them till the Monday. We would have loved to visit them, as we spent the Sunday driving around ourselves,... More

A must see. Many attractions are available on the island but this is different. Have a sightseeing break and enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Sunday morning market. Not very big but you would need a couple of hours to take full advantage. Food, music and local wares are available.Help the locals. There is a great deal of locally produced... More

This is good to get you up and awake on a Sunday Morning. Good to duck into to get some local grown produce for cooking, veggies, fruit and eggs. Homemade cakes and other recipes are on sale. It was fun to cook some dishes with what was available. Cakes disappeared the quickest. You can also buy local bacon on the... More

We arrived and left Norfolk Island on early morning Sunday flights. The market (such as it appeared to be) closed at 11.00am so we weren't quick enough to get there when we arrived and weren't able to visit before we left. Not exactly the best for tourists but that exemplifies much of what niggled about Norfolk Island - half-day closing... More

We visited the markets on a Sunday morning while waiting for our flight home and were surprised by how small they were. There were a few interesting stalls with local souvenirs etc but there wasn't really anything in the way of food. Possibly we visited too late in the day (10am) and maybe some of the stalls had already been... More

We had loved the coconut pie dessert served at the evening fish fry on an earlier visit to the island, so we were keen to find a local source of it on this visit. It is ironic, as Norfolk, being subtropical, doesn't grow coconuts!! We turned up early to the markets and hit the jackpot straightaway, with a lovely lady... More
