In an age where the vast majority of us do our shopping at big-chain supermarkets it’s nice to be able to get your fruit and veg (that’s Aussie for vegetables!) at a farmer’s market. One where the person selling you the fruit is the person who grew it.
Cairns’ most famous market is Rusty’s in the heart of the city. Here you can find a wide variety of tropical fruits the likes of which you may have never seen before. Durians, star fruit, jack fruit, mangosteens, and these pawpaws and rambutans.
Try them all and buy the ones you like. They’re healthy, full of vitamins and the local economy will love you for it.
