Foodies visiting the Sunshine Coast over a weekend who are looking for one of its ultimate hubs for sheer selection when it comes to quality food should be sure to include a visit to the excellent Noosa Farmers Market on their travel itinerary. Taking place every Sunday from 7:00am to 12:00pm, these markets offer multiple kinds of goods, however there's definitely a main focus on eating, with numerous types of cuisines to sample that are freshly baked, fried, grilled or simply served as-is on the spot. "Freshness" is definitely the name of the game here, with an extensive amount of fresh produce available for purchase highlighted by a range of wonderful fruits mostly with a hint of the tropics characteristic of Queensland - think pawpaw, avocados, apricots, mangoes and the like. As a result, it's an excellent place for a quality breakfast or lunch, with the sheer variety meaning the "something for everyone" cliche truly applies here. It's also a much better place if you're after fruits and veggies that will actually keep for more than a few days as opposed to your local supermarket; as a result, if you're staying in Noosa for several days it can pay to stock up here first. In addition to prepared food, other miscellaneous produce such as smoked meats, freshly-caught seafood, and a range of organic foodstuffs round out the offerings for the palate. Coffee-lovers will also rejoice as there are multiple quality stalls serving hot cups of the good stuff. Those visiting the Noosa Farmers Market with kids are catered for as well, as there's a jumping castle, live entertainment, and it's also not huge and thus reasonable for the little ones to navigate without getting tired. It's nearly always busy and you may have to wait in some lines, however the quality of food on offer makes a visit here well worth the wait.
