Eat Street Markets
The brainchild of four popular Brisbane personalities, Brisbane market guru Peter Hackworth, TV producer John Stainton, retail entrepreneur John Harrison, and veteran TV personality Jacki MacDonald, the Eat Street Markets are situated down by the river at Hamilton’s North Shore within 80 colourful shipping containers selling street food, cocktails, arts and crafts, clothes and other quirky trinkets. On Friday and Saturday nights fairy lights shine down on alleyways of global food, pop-up bars and live music. Among the Eat Street stars are Japanese pizza from Okonomi House, local seafood like Samie’s Girl oysters, Banneton’s wood-fired pizza, and Korean fusion burgers. Sundays are for hoovering up collectibles and curios – seek out some herbal soaps, or the recycled metal sculptures from Tanzania by Heather’s Artz. Crucially for visitors, there is plenty of free parking nearby and the markets themselves are within touching distance of the Northshore Hamilton ferry terminal.
Opening hours: Fri-Sat 4pm–10pm; Sun 10am–3pm
