Held at Heazlett Park Foreshore in Avoca Beach, the Avoca Beachside Markets are well-known throughout the area as the premier artists and musicians market on the Central Coast. Drawing the best creative talent in the region, the markets are the perfect showcase for local artists' work, with more than 100 stalls ranging from local art and jewellery to homewares and food.

The Davistown RSL Charity Markets are an indoor market held on the third Sunday of the month. There are a variety of stalls including fashion, homewares, and arts and crafts.
