Overview

For 30 years this has been one of the biggest and best markets in Australia. In the middle of the village of Bangalow in the Showground once a month the market brings hundreds of stallholders together to provide a feast for the all of your senses. Food, craft, art, clothes... performers world class buskers and music.

The formula has been working for 35 years and not much has changed. We even have the same person running it who started it all those years ago.

You've done your homework and know all the details. Yes people are surprised we only charge $2 to park right in the Market grounds and, yes, we do keep the website up to date especially on those weekends when serious rain threatens.

Thanks Sonia, the management team work hard and some have been doing so now for 30 something years! The market still has a great feel and reflects much of what Bangalow and the Byron Bay area is about. Neville

Essentially a local food (meat, fish, fruit, veggies etc) market every Saturday am. In the Pub's car park. YOU, the customer/browser/socialiser, choose for freshness, friendliness, and/or price. Early for freshness, later for fun and price! Always friendly!

Another review mistaking the weekly Saturday local food market for the monthly Market. The Saturday market is about 20 food stalls where locals buy their supplies. An excellent market but it is nothing like the 4th Sunday market that has 300+ stalls

Thanks for your comment Jane. The April market was a quite wet and our stall numbers were down but those attended had a good day it fined up after 11am. A small less crowded market but you needed to wear boots.

A great place to visit if you’re in Bangalow on a Sunday. Eclectic range of goods, locally made. A range of food offerings with organic being a strong emphasis.

Catherine thanks for your review. positive feedback makes our efforts that much more worthwhile. We like everyone like being thanked when we do a good job. The last market was touch and go with rain in the days leading up to it.
