The Yungaburra Market is the biggest and oldest market on the Atherton Tablelands. On one day each month, local producers gather on the commons in the middle of the historic village of Yungaburra to sell fresh produce, flowers, home made crafts, local wines, wooden furniture, clothing and just about anything else you can think of.

Yungaburra Markets are the highlight of the market calendar, etched on the weekend to-do lists of thousands of locals and visitors. Most who visit this sensational culmination of produce, food, art and music leave with a love for the historic town.

It’s a special experience that sees this small and sleepy township on the Atherton Tablelands burst at the seams as people descend on Yungaburra to get their fix. Go for quirky gift ideas, tropical jams, marinades and preserves, street foods, paintings, handmade art and clothing.

You’ll find buskers, poets and the local choir keeping visitors entertained and great facilities to sit, relax and take it all in. If you’re looking to make a day of it, you could head out to the waterfall circuit at Millaa Millaa or swim in a crater lake at Lake Eacham. Visit the nearby townships of Atherton or Herberton offering great experiences such as the Crystal Caves or Herberton Historic Village.

The Markets run from 7:30am to 12:30pm. It pays to come early, as some stalls sell out early.

From January to November, the markets are held on the 4th Saturday of the month. The December Market - usually the biggest of the year - is specially scheduled to ensure it falls prior to Christmas eve.
