The Markets run from 7:30am to 12:30pm. It pays to come early, as some stalls sell out early.
In most months the Yungaburra Market is held on the 4th Saturday of the month. However there are some exceptions, so read on...
December Market Dates
The Christmas Market in December is the largest market of the year. The date is determined by the committee to ensure that it always falls before Christmas Eve, and does not conflict with other Tableland markets.
In 2013, the December Christmas Market will be held on Sunday 22nd of December.
April Market Dates
In order to ensure that the April market does not interrupt the ANZAC Day ceremony in Yungaburra, the markets are never held on ANZAC Day. In those years when the 4th Saturday in April falls on the 25th, the market will be held on Sunday 26th. This happened in 2009 and will happen again in 2015.

December Market Date
From January through November the markets fall on the 4th Saturday of the month. Experience has shown that markets held on or after Christmas Eve (Dec 24th) are poorly attended, so the market in December is specially scheduled to avoid holding it after the 23rd.
Moving the market to another Saturday would result in a collision with one of the other nearby Tableland markets scheduled for the first, second and third Saturdays of every month. Consqeuently the following formula is used to determine the date of the December market:
On years when the fourth Saturday in December falls on or after the 24th, the markets are rescheduled to the last Sunday preceeding the 24th.
Sound confusing? To complicate matters, the rules have been changed a few times recently, so the best advice is watch this space.
