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.

The people are friendly the food options great for a small market. Great for buying fresh local fruit and vegetables. Good if you want herbs and spices, a lot cheaper than the supermarkets. Good to go early as it can get hot by midday.

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.
