The “Green Shed”, located at The Showgrounds, Main Western Rd., Mt. Tamborine, Queensland, is the local market for fresh, mostly organic, fruit & vegetables, and is open EVERY WEEK on Sunday mornings from 7.00am to noon. We also sell flowers, honey, nuts, herbs & plants.
A wide variety of high quality, freshly picked, mainly organically grown produce, is always available. The range available, depends on the season. Prices are set at a level which provide farmers a financial return sufficient to encourage them to continue their farming activities.
Tamborine Mountain is the source of an enormous variety of horticultural produce: avocados, kiwi fruit, rhubarb, vegetables and flowers. There are many large, specialist orchards, but much of the production comes from small farms or large residential blocks. About 70% of the land on Mount Tamborine is designated for rural use. Horticultural activities give Tamborine Mountain its green, unspoiled character: one of the reasons for the large numbers of tourists who visit here.
Held last Sunday of each month, the Tamborine Mountain School Markets are Renowned for some of the best burgers in town. These markets bring together growers, bric-brac, clothing, tools, woodwork, face-painting for the kids and the list is endless — something for everyone. Search through the huge collections of books, antiques and the rare oddities.
