The night markets are merely Asian dominated and if you know Paddy's market from Sydney, then you would call Cairns' night markets a "baby sister" of that.
It is small, offers the same merchandise (95% from China) for sometimes 50% higher prices, but also offers cheap massages and freshly cut fruits. The 40min massage for $15 is very cheap, but you won't get any privacy. It is not really relaxing, but you will get what you pay for. I guess that the few individual Artists who really create their own things suffer a little from the cheap merchandise around.
The food court offers Asian food, especially the self serving Chinese outlets where you can pack your plates for a fixed price are value for money. If you do not like Asian food, just go somewhere close by.
It is definitely worth having a look at the night markets! In the end, you don't need to buy anything.
