The Wharf Community Market
On the third Friday of each month the picturesque setting of Mooloolaba Wharf buzzes with activity as stall holders set our their wares for The Wharf Community Market. Musicians add to the atmosphere and the wonderful aromas from stallholders’ wares and restaurants fill the air.
There are jewellery makers with their beaded necklaces, earrings and bracelets, cushion makers, clothes makers and designers, candle makers and sellers of plates, dishes, mirrors, toys, books, lamps and other crafted items.
A visit to the market would not be complete without a chat with Pablo as we select our fresh fruit and vegetables, a good catch-up with Gordon who sells award winning yoghurts and cheeses, or taking the time to check out the fresh wood-fired pizza and hand-crafted smallgoods
Fudgees is hard to go past with their extensive range of sweets and home-made fudges.
There are plenty of eateries to choose from as most of the restaurants and cafes stay open for the market. The Thai Wharf Restaurant offers dine-in or take-away Thai food and have no corkage for BYO. The Edge has market specials and we think the $10 fish, chips and salad is hard to go past. There’s Mexican, traditional ice-creams, sandwiches, health food and The Wharf Tavern has meals as well.
Isla and Me is lovely shop with an amazing range of toys, book and clothing for children up to the age of 6. Amy has chosen her stock with care and places great importance on toys that encourage imaginative play.
The crew at Mudjimba Cruisers can help out with any skateboard questions you have. Lauren has dresses hand made from patterns of the 50s and 60s.
