The Byron Bay Holiday House experience is not complete without a visit to one of the regions craft and produce markets.
Brunswick Heads Markets (1st Saturday of the month)
On the first Saturday of each month the Brunswick Heads markets are on. Just twenty minutes north of Byron Bay, these waterside markets overlook the stunning Brunswick River. They take place on the riverbank in Memorial park and are just a short walk to the local shops and cafes.
Byron Bay Markets (1st Sunday of the month)
The first Sunday of every month is the Byron Bay markets. Held in the Butler Street Reserve, they’re an easy stroll from the town’s centre, just across the railway line. These markets are a great break from Byron’s beaches and reveal another side of the town’s personality.
The Lismore Markets (1st and 3rd Sunday of the month)
The Lismore Car Boot Market is an all weather undercover market that is held under the Lismore Shopping Square every first and third Sunday of each month. The market stalls feature a large variety of local arts and crafts, fresh produce, delicious food and coffee, books, clothing, plants, antiques, collectables and over 30 garage sales all under the one roof.
The Channon Markets (2nd Sunday of the month)
The Channon Markets are held on the second Sunday of each month. Located just over an hour inland of Byron Bay, they showcase the rural beauty of the Lismore area. Held in The Channon’s Coronation Park, they’re a ‘make it, bake it, grow it’ market with a special emphasis on local products.
Lennox Head Markets (2nd & 5th Sunday of the month)
On the second and fifth Sunday of each month, the Lennox Head markets are on. Held near Lake Ainsworth at the bottom of town, they’re just across from Lennox’s Seven Mile Beach. An easy twenty minutes south of Byron Bay, the coastal location gives these markets a seaside atmosphere.
Mullumbimby Markets (3rd Saturday of the month)
The Mullumbimby markets are held on the third Saturday of every month. Just twenty minutes north of Byron, they take place at the end of Stuart Street in the heart of the town. Overlooking the Richmond River, they’re next to the Heritage Museum, which is only open during market hours.
Uki Markets (Saturdays)
The third Sunday of each month is the Uki markets. Just under an hour northwest of Byron through spectacular mountain scenery, they’re held in the Uki Village Buttery. Next to a river and under the shade of forest trees, these markets showcase the town’s culture, including indigenous dances and the locally famous Perch Creek Jug Band.
Nimbin Markets (3rd & 5th Sunday of the month)
The Nimbin markets are on the third and fifth Sunday of each month. A little over an hour west of Byron Bay, they’re held at the Nimbin Community Centre on Cullen Street. The marketplace is a leafy clearing surrounded by trees, showing off the natural beauty of the area.
Bangalow Markets (4th Sunday of the month)
The fourth Sunday of each month is the Bangalow markets. Held in the Bangalow showgrounds, they’re locally renowned for their beauty. Large, old trees tower over the stalls creating a shady utopia beneath. Fifteen minutes inland from Byron, they are easy to get to, rich in local culture and one of the biggest around.
Fresh, organic, locally-grown food. Byron’s produce includes both tropical and temperate fruit and vegetables, as well as meat, eggs, coffee and a whole range of gourmet items to enhance your cuisine.
