The monthly Crystal Waters Market is a unique experience for visitors to the hinterland and locals alike. A day trip to the markets can be combined with an ecovillage tour, spotting native fauna and hundreds of bird species, a swim in the Mary River, and even overnight accommodation in the EcoPark visitors and camping area.

The market has locally-grown produce, handmade arts and craft, clothing, plants, live music and a playground. Familiar stallholders from other Sunshine Coast markets include Crystal Waters Honey, the Naked Carrot and Froggie Hoppity Hop (pictured).

The iconic Crystal Waters Sourdough Bakery sells freshly baked sourdough bread, coffee and French patisseries. At the food court on the main community building deck, the Flowerpot Coffee Shop and Baba Bistro serve delicious coffees, breakfast, cakes and lunch.

Other market highlights include Rainforest Liquors produced from wild-harvested local bush foods, jewellery and collectables, massage and yoga classes.

Crystal Waters is home to a diverse range of native fauna due to its ‘no dogs or cats’ policy, and has been declared ‘Land for Wildlife’.

The Crystal Waters Market at 65 Kilcoy Lane, Conondale, is held on the first Saturday of the month (except January) from 8am to 1pm.
