Lived in Cairns for 6 months and visited every Sunday to pick up goods for our hostel's BBQ. You will never see a fresher or wider selection of fruits and vegetables in Australia. Great deals and friendly vendors!

Busy market full of fruits and vegetables that features tropical delights that will delight and amaze you as you may find some new fruits you have never seen !! Reasonable prices and free parking the first two hours fri-sun. Grab a fresh sugarcane juice it's a must try !!

Rustys is a busy fruit and veg market in the centre of Cairns, we visited every week and had a 'New Fruit Friday' and tried lots of different things (Jack fruit is a must if you've never had it) So much choice i'd recommend to everyone
