Thankfully, there’s a great place to get inexpensive and very fresh fruit and vegetables within easy walking distance of Noosa Junction.  The Noosa Farmer’s Market runs each Sunday morning (from a very early start to late morning).  It is held at the AFL ground, on Weyba Rd.  You’ll see it when you’re there – there are cars everywhere.

Prices range from very cheap to suspiciously inflated…keep an eye out for a bargain, though, and you can head home with a fridge full of vitamin C at a very reasonable price!

You can read more about the markets at http://www.noosafarmersmarket.com.au
