Caribbean Gardens & Market, Scoresby

#150 of 469 in Shopping in Victoria
Caribbean Park is home to an iconic community market in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Since 1966 locals and visitors have been exploring the gardens and market stalls that have created childhood memories across generations.

Australia’s largest and best-loved community market is situated on almost 300 acres of parkland. It was once a handful of traders and has today grown into a bustling undercover market with over 1,000 stall sites, an almost 6,000 square metre pavilion plus a further 1,000 square metre area for outdoor stalls.

Open every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, Caribbean Gardens and Market is a variety market where locals and boutique businesses alike gather to sell their wares. It’s here where you’ll find everything from fresh produce to accessories, to household goods; there’s little wonder the market has been a destination for bargain hunters from around Melbourne and beyond.

Keep an eye out for special market events like Babes To Kids, Twilight at Caribbean, heaps of car shows and extra activities over Easter, Christmas and school holidays – all offering even more opportunities to entertain the family and find something unique and special.

It’s also a fun and affordable family day out with an on-site café, train ride, mini golf, jungle safari, chairlift and extensive playgrounds and picnic areas.

Caribbean Gardens and Market is a family destination you’ll want to come to again and again – we look forward to seeing you!

  • The Caribbean Market is very much a Trash& Treasure style with plenty of stalls and foods. I do have to tell you that parking can be an issue as that many people come there especially in the school holidays etc. The stalls are generally good with some nice food stalls and a second hand auction event where one could sell to the highest bidder your used goods. The markets seem to be growing as they seemed to added an additional wing and there are plenty of places for the family to spend a day to with a playground, train rides (for a cost) and an outdoor restaurant. All up it gets a thumbs up with a 7.5 out of ten or my four stars.
  • This place is absolutely kool. Great day for the family with its chairlift over the lake. If you take a good look, you'll spot some interesting sights around the lake. Great for some random shopping, interesting stalls, face painting, butcher's, bakery, fish shop and plenty more. You could quite easily spend a great chuck of your day wandering around this place. With a playground for the kids and it's very own railway, and let's not forget... This place even has its very own tank!! Great sights to see for a casual weekend, but it is open 3 days of the week.
