Go there at least once a month to stock up on fruit and vegetables. Really love the freshness and availability of produce. Great atmosphere and lots of choice of freshly cooked food . Wonderful smells and buzz about the place.

If you want to save money on food, buying locally produced veggies and fruit is the way to go. Rapid Creek is the market to visit on a Sunday.

Great to head out of town to a family friendly market. The variety of handmade goods was amazing and quite different. Great fresh produce stalls and the variety of food was fantastic cultural experience.

Darwin buses are pretty terrible, but Route 10 leaves the CBD (bus interchange, near the top of the Smith Street mall) on Sunday morning at 6:55 then 7:40 then about every half hour. 22 minute trip to Rapid Creek markets.
