Ok if you want to grab something for the garden. Plants are great value. You really only have to walk the first 4 isles because it’s much the same after that. Foods great and the food truck part is fantastic. There's something for everyone.

Tacky dodgy stalls with the fruit/veg, bath salts and wall art being the only good things available. I didn’t know Gucci & Calvin Klein did budget hoodies and caps. The food trucks & fast food are expensive. And you have to pay to get in....More

Parking can be a hassle and the on site food options aren't great. Expect better for the entry fee. Some of the stalls were good value but didnt enjoy the experience as much as Queen Victoria Market or Dandenong market.

The market is set on lovely grounds by a lake where there are a couple of kids playgrounds. There was also a train for the little ones that seems to run around the market, a river ferry and horse riding amongst other child friendly activities...More

I enjoy the Caribbean Gardens and Market. It has everything you need under the one large roof. I always buy my watches and have my watch batteries replaced there because they are very affordable and last along time. There are loads of different stalls, a...More
