    If you want to venture further afield and have a keen interest in local produce, the Mossman 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. Opens 7am.

    Every Saturday | 7am - 12pm
