If you want to venture further afield and have a keen interest in local produce, the Mossman Farmers Market is the place to be.

Located under the canopy of ancient giant rain trees and in the gardens of the historic St. David’s Anglican Church, here you will meet the locals who have been farming and living in this region for generations.

Purchase giant exotic fruits, vegetables and lush herbs and spices – all grown with the help of the tropics. Or update your kitchen linen with kitchsy handmade tea towels and aprons. Or sample some of the best country-baked sweet cakes and slices you’ll find in the north.

Here, the early bird catches the worm, so make sure you get here before midday every Saturday. (text: visitportdouglasdaintree.com.au)

Held every Saturday from 7.00am – 1.00pm under the Raintrees, Foxton Avenue, Mossman.

Come along to the Mossman Markets and purchase fresh local produce straight from the farm. There are many stalls with beautiful local organic produce and handcrafted items. Come enjoy this relaxed country market with locals and visitors positioned under the shady canopy of the huge Raintrees and next to the historic St David’s Church.

Accessibility is generally good, with nearby and limited accessible parking available. A public accessible toilet is located next to the All Abilities Play Ground opposite the market. There are no regular paved pathways between the market stall therefore the ground may be uneven and assistance may be required depending on an individual’s capacity and particular needs.
