The Queenstown markets offer visitors a wide range of local produce, arts and crafts.
The markets operate from two separate venues:
The Creative Queenstown Arts and Crafts Markets are located in Earnslaw Park, on the lakefront in downtown Queenstown.
They run every Saturday (with a few additional Fridays thrown in), and feature arts and crafts from a wide range of local and South Island artists and crafters.
Paintings, woodwork, jewellery, pottery, photographs, carvings and soaps are just some of the lovingly crafted items that can be found here.
The markets also showcase local musical talent, adding to the relaxed Southern Lakes feel of the day.
You can learn more on their dedicated website here.
The Remarkables Markets are located at the Red Barn at the Remarkables Park shopping centre at Frankton (near Queenstown Airport).
They run from October to April each year.
With the backdrop of The Remarkables, it's a relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning.
There's a wide range of local produce, arts and crafts, and freshly cooked food (perhaps a quick breakfast to begin).
There's also live music to keep you entertained as you wander.
