Broome Courthouse Markets

The Broome Courthouse Markets have been operating in the heritage grounds of the historic Broome Courthouse for more than 20 years.

The market is managed by a committee made up of stallholders and all profits are donated to other Broome community groups. $20,000.00 was donated at Christmas 2006 to several Broome based organisations.

The market operates all year on a Saturday and on Sundays from April to October. There is a limit of 100 permanent sites on Saturdays and most of these are filled by members who trade most of the year. More than 80% of the products sold on Saturdays are hand made locally in Broome and availability of casual stall sites is extremely limited.

Products include fresh produce, photography, honey, preserves, indigenous and contemporary art, many hand-crafts, clothing, jewellery and a diverse range of freshly cooked food. Buskers entertain the crowds with music and performance. The relaxed atmosphere, shady trees and lawned areas make the Courthouse Markets the ideal place for visitors and locals to mix and sample the quality and range of products available from the local area.

The Sunday Courthouse Markets were started 4 years ago to cater for those unable to trade on Saturdays and has grown to be another successful market with many stalls not represented on Saturdays. Vacancies exist for people wishing to have a stall site.

The Committee also operates the Moon Market twice a month at Town Beach to coincide with the Staircase to the Moon phenomenon. This night market is another opportunity to sample the tastes of Broome cuisine and choose from the diverse range of products available while enjoying the spectacle of the Moon rising over Roebuck Bay.
