Rusty's Market

Cairns, Australia

Weekend Fruit Market


If you are in Cairns during the weekend, Rusty's Market is the perfect place to stop to pick up fresh fruit and vegetables. Vendors are all local merchants who buy regional and seasonal products. There are dozens of vendors, some who sell vegetarian food, jewelry, and baked goods. Come late Sunday morning for especially good deals before the market close; but be warned many of the best fruits will be gone.

Rusty's is amazing. Don't miss it if yo are in the city Friday Sunday. All the fruit is delicious. If you are a traveler/tourist you have an opportunity to eat some very special unique fruits like custard apple, black zapote, durian, dragon fruit, lychee, red paw paw, and lady fingers.

There is a great place to get high quality bread, called Brumby's. There is also a nice juice bar, and one time I saw a raw food dessert vendor (who was really friendly and had great homemade food)!!! There is one place t get vegetarian samosas and another to get sticky rice cakes. I highly recommend the small, dark purple plums, the white peaches, and black grapes. And the kiwis!!!

This place has cheaper and fresher fruit and TONS of variety! Most significant, it is not corporately owned by Woolworth's and Cole's and other coercive supermarkets.
