The Village Markets Stones Corner
Burleigh Heads huge fashion market is making waves in Brisbane.
We know that sometimes after a ruff week, you just want to paws and head out to breakfast with your furry friend. We were in a dog walking group a couple of years ago and we had breakfast at Brown Dog Café so we decided to drop in there again before heading to Stones Corners Markets. Woollongabba’s cafes often have queues around the block, a trend that is unique to Queensland diners.
Brown Dog has to be one of the undisputed gems if Brisbane. Brown Dog Cafe occupies a tiny ex-corner store in a bit of a no-man’s land outside of the Woolloongabba’s antique quarter, but that doesn’t stop the crowds piling in on a regular basis. The vibe is cool urban retro, and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
The lures are many – the friendly spot on service, well made Di Bella coffee and food that miraculously appears from the airline-galley sized kitchen, not to mention the park-your-dog spaces outside. On that note, one of the standout dishes happens to be the Dog breakfast – scrambled eggs, haloumi, avocado, roma tomato and spinach. Even though they are really busy, they always greet all clients, and happy to take orders. We could stay all morning, but the markets were beckoning.
Our favourite Burleigh Heads market, The Village Markets, expanded North to Brisbane at Stones Corner on a quarterly basis. This was our second chance to drop in and check out the stores.
The Village Markets at Stones Corner Village lined up with boutique market stalls, live music, creative workshops, family fun, pre-loved designer and vintage Rack Sales and good vibes. Alongside this is a beautiful street filled with boutiques, eateries, eclectic establishments and more.
One thing we like about visiting different markets is that they are all unique; they all sell perishable commodities from varied suppliers but there will always be a few stallholders distinctive to each market.
Fashion, art, homewares and handcrafted goods as far as the eye can see — that’s The Village Markets. A Burleigh Heads favourite ever since setting up shop over a decade ago, this regular browsing and buying mecca combines a specially curated stall lineup with food, drinks, live local music and creative workshops, plus a super relaxed vibe.
It’s great news for us living north of Burleigh Heads, TVM now makes the leap to Brisbane. Forget driving down the highway — all we need to do is make our way to Stones Corner Village once a quarter.
Regardless of the time of year, the market is perfect for anyone looking for a gift — for others, and for themselves. Think everything from colourful dresses to luxe jewellery to accessories for your puppy, plus the Brissie version of TVM’s famed pre-loved designer and vintage rack sales.
