Bullaburra Craft Markets
First Saturday, 9am-3pm.
Bullaburra Progress Hall
Corner Noble St and Great Western Highway
Perched on the edge of the Great Western Highway in what may seem like a random patch of grass, the Bullaburra Craft Markets are an eclectic highway experience. For families wanting a five minute break from the journey, or wanting to pick up a quirky last minute trinket from their stay in the Blue Mountains, this could be the right spot to pull over and stretch your legs. Wander around and check out the honey lady, the plate and vintage doodads collector, grab a pair of handmade gloves or beanie in the colder months, or maybe some second hand clothing, fruit, or veggies. The stall holders and their wares vary each time but for lovers of markets of all kinds, it is worth a look-see.
