365 Places: The Valley Markets

Day 56: The Valley Markets, fortitude Vally, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Today, I am posting about a favourite market that was a regular haunt when I was living in my home town of Brisbane.

The Fortitude Valley Markets, affectionately known as The Valley Markets, is a great place to look around, check out some great art and craft by local artists and designers and then head to one of the Valley’s many coffee shops to escape the midday heat. It is also a market which always surprises, as the market stalls vary from week to week.

Also, the market has the added benefit of being on both Saturday or Sunday (9am – 4pm), which is great as you can still get to weekend sports, work and other weekend commitments.

What I also love is that you can get to the market very easily via public transport, with regular buses and trains stopping in the Valley precinct.
