    Remarkables Market

    This is a Queenstown must do, predominantly for its incredible selection of local produce, deli food and tasty snack options. Come and relax, enjoy the mellow vibes, great food, artisan wares and outstanding mountain views. There’s a massive sandpit for the kids so it’s a great options for families with young kids. It is located close to a trampolining centre and go kart racing, so well placed for slightly older kids who don’t want to walk around the market.
