Brisbane Genki Market
One of Brisbane’s best kept secrets until now, Brisbane Genki Market is a cross-cultural showcase of arts and crafts, new and second-hand goods and amazing street food, all with a uniquely Asian flavour.
Held on the last Sunday of every month in Brisbane CBD, the market has grown in the number of stall holders and the variety of wares and food on offer since its beginning early in 2021.
With an emphasis on local and handmade, you can find crochet and macramé creations including plant hangers (plants too), jewellery, ceramics, gift cards and art.
Some stalls sell a curated range of beautiful imported goods such as Japanese ceramics and writing sets, and there’s even a stall selling new and preloved vinyl records.
The delectable street food at Brisbane Genki Market has a Japanese influence with takoyaki (octopus fritter balls), taiyaki (fish-shaped filled sweet pastry), dango (skewered mochi with a range of flavours and toppings), matcha cakes and iced matcha latte being just some of the regular favourites. You can also often find croquetas (Spanish croquettes), delicious confectionery and coffee.
Patrons are advised to keep an eye on Brisbane Genki Market’s Instagram for any announcements regarding COVID.
