Owner description: Held every Sunday from 8am to 1pm. The Caloundra Street Fair is more than just a market. It's a concoction of over 200 unique arts and crafts stalls, live entertainment, fresh produce and tasty treats plus local cafes, boutiques and over 50 speciality shops are open in the street. Have a relaxing Sunday breakfast or lunch under a canopy of beautiful shaded trees, then take a short stroll or swim on nearby Bulcock Beach.

Markets on a Sunday in summer are sure to be hot - however walk down a couple of blocks and you can cool off at Bulcock beach before heading back for more shopping. Usual wide range of stalls similar to Eumundi however shops lining the street are also open. Beach wear ok so relax, wander up and down the street and spoil yourself. Musicians are playing along the road and general atmosphere is easy going with people stopping to look at the stalls. There are a few trees too which provide much welcome shade. Great way to spend a Sunday morning in Caloundra.

We visited the markets on Sunday 23rd December. There was some really nice artwork stalls & a very cute baby clothes stall which we purchased from. Other than that, the market stalls were fairly average & nothing new. It was a very hot day & was nice to walk in the shade & something different to do.

Thank Twigsy

The Caloundra Markets have become much bigger than when I first came here 9 years ago.They are on par with Eumundi with lots of different stalls.Great for Christmas and birthday shopping depending on what you want.Always find something to buy.The other shops are also open.Everyone's friendly and some of the entertainment is good.Two young boys,brothers,I think,sing and play guitar there from time to time and are great,always draw a big crowd.The trees provide shade along the way and there's plenty of places to eat and have coffee.The beach is only a street away if you want a dip to cool off.
Every Sunday 0800 to 1300. Definitely worth a look.

not cheap compared to other markets it still is a great market to visit on a sunday morning, plenty of stalls selling everything from hand made soaps,jewellery,belts walletts, health foods, to clothes, massages plenty of food outlets and fresh ginger beer, lots of plants and fruit is also available, after 9 am the local shops also open so it becomes a shoppers paradise with both sides of the street open plus the stalls up the middle of the street, if you are near caloundra on a sunday you must visit the markets
