  • Parap Village Markets are on every Saturday morning and are one of the best places for Laksas and Asian market cuisine. Great coffee and a vibrant Darwin outdoor scene.
  • Love Papap markets. Great selections of food and perfect set up. A must see.
  • Love this. Close to home with great stalls and yummy food. If ur looking for local crafts, the Parap markets have a fantastic variety to browse. Several really good buskers to entertain the crowd. Dont forget to check out the shops in the area too.
  • Best place for a Saturday morning in Darwin. Embrace in the cultural stores and delicious food that they have on offer. If you're taking babies, probably best to have them in a carrier as the walking space can be quite limited for a pram. There is seating with tables that get cleaned often.
  • Loved the markets! Much smaller than Mindil but more variety I thought. Some of the stalls are the same but it has much more atmosphere, and it's on Saturday mornings.
