Caribbean Babes to Kids and Maternity Market takes place on the first Friday of the month alongside the traditional market, just to the right. If you are considering researching a new pram - Mamma says head to this place as the prams are wall to wall with mums doing their shopping and so many prams in the aisles that you can't move at times. The market is filled with mums, often hunting in packs for a bargain at the second hand stalls. It is a great place to purchase preloved clothes, toys, books as well as checking out great handmade goods. Pram liners, teething necklaces, wall prints, dream catchers and bedroom decor are all on show at this market. Perfect place too if you are looking to make some extra cash by clearing out the kids wardrobe. Stalls are a steal at $5 for a table. The market runs once a month on the first Friday during the cooler months (June to September) and twice a month on the first and third Friday's in the warmer weather (October to April).
Mamma's special mention: the Caribbean Gardens is a brilliant, old school family destination. A handful of playgrounds, cafe with a kids area and FREE TRAIN RIDES on these Friday's as well (rides start at 11am). Make sure visit Mr Whippy or grab a bag of dim sims to really make it an old school day out!
