How does your market stand out from the crowd?

Caribbean Gardens and Market is a place you can spend the whole day with family, friends or by yourself. After 50 years, the market is still the main attraction, although the rides, live music, entertainment, playgrounds, picnic areas, BBQs, café and street food options all make it an attractive and affordable day out.

What food and drink is on offer?

Two street food areas undercover in the market offering plenty of seating and variety, including international cuisine, and the market café that provides all the faster food and beverage options, as well as stallholder goodies.

What’s the perfect Christmas present in your eyes?

Something a little thoughtful that makes you laugh.

Does your market have any live music?

Buskers are often found in the market and live bands play the classics on Sundays during summer. For any bands or buskers interested in giving it a go, check out the information on our website.

Got any exciting changes in store for your market this summer?

Caribbean Gardens and Market will host a range of family-friendly activities over the summer school holidays, in addition to the live music, car shows, rides, playgrounds and other entertainment on offer. Check the website under ‘What’s On’.
