“Great fruit!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The fruit stalls are amazing! All sorts of tropical fruit...I got lychees, papaya (they call them pawpaw), and mango for very reasonable prices. They are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All locals shop here.

“Average”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Lots of really nice fresh fruit and vegetables however the rest of the markets are really crap unless you are looking for something cheap to take away from your visit in Cairns

“Plenty of cheap fruit and veg and has a fun atmosphere”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We liked going to Rustys market for the fresh and inexpensive fruits. Beautiful mangoes and paw paw and just about anything else you could want. It's not big but certainly a good visit. Small little eateries and stalls selling coffee and food

“Great for Fresh food and other bits and bobs”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This place is great to get some local fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, dairy products, ready to eat food and a few other bits and bobs such as clothing, jewellery etc. Great way to spend an hour and savour the flavours you can find here and all the colours of the seasons

“Where the locals buy fresh!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

Rustys is a very popular place to buy the very best and freshest produce from around Cairns. The customers are an eclectic mix from all over the world. A great place to get some really good local fruit or just to people watch for a while. Great fresh smoothies as well!
