Had to have a look at Rustys market while in Cairns. Tropical fruits and other produce interesting but otherwise not much else except for a few other stalls selling bits and pieces.

If you want a cheap, delicious brekky you can't go past the market. Beautiful crepes, burgers, coconut juice, pastries and more. Pick up fruit and veg for lunch etc while you're there.
