I wish we had markets like this in Sydney. There were lots of different stalls selling handmade items. We spent around 45 minutes wandering around. It had a really nice vibe.

Love these markets as most stalls are individual artisans selling their own creations. This is my Christmas shopping mega as there are lots of bespoke jewellery, clothing and treasures. The music was excellent.

The markets are located centrally at the waterfront easily accessible by foot. In front of all the shops and public facilities. It is a must see event on a Saturday morning. Great to browse through very artistic pieces.

This was a nice smallish market with real handmade stuff. The stallholders were friendly and the prices seemed very reasonable. Great thing to do on a Saturday in Queenstown.
