    Come on Sunday before they close around 3pm, the veggies and fruits price are sooo cheap! More than half the price of Coles/Woolies.

    Operating for over 30 years, Rustys Markets is a Cairns institution. Take a stroll through the local produce stalls and sample the freshest Far North QLD fruit & veg. Parking is free for 2 hours!

    Awesome open air fruit and veg markets with lots of local produce. Make sure you check out the organic stalls too.

    Find the banana man near the front and eateries, cheapest and best quality bananas. Always sells out!

    Try the spinach and cheese samosa! The date and tamarind sauce is divine!

    Passion-fruits for 30c each, whole pineapples for $3, paw-paw for $2.50 kg, live doesn't get much better than Rusty's!

    Get a fresh cane juice or a bubble shake. Sweet but really good.

    One of the best markets in Australia, awesome range of fruit and veg plus great local character and food to go on site. Multicultural and cool...

    explore Rusty's while sipping on fresh sugar cane juice. Called roh in India or asab in Egypt, here we just call it sugar cane juice!!
