Thanks for your comments. Yes some of those on our market stallholders do not attend every market so each market there will be some who are listed as permanent will not be there. And we could be a little tardy in making sure that list...More

Large markets with plenty of people. Big variety. Most items overpriced. Seems to have lost its basic idea of a market.More

The Bangalow Market has always been an arts and crafts market, if the expectation is that it is a trash and treasure market you might be disappointed. Lismore has an excellent market like that on the 1st and 3rd Sunday so the region has a...More

Worth the wander through, on the 4th Sunday of the month but be prepared for lots of traffic. Great range of everything. Lovely sprawling space full of good vibes and great souls. New and recycled, yummies, treats and good food

Yes the streets around town do fill up with cars on the Market Sunday. Our carpark on the Showground never fills up because we have a lot of space but it can take a while to get in and out. Good to hear you enjoyed...More

This market has managed to keep it's personality in spite of all the hoopla going on around the place.

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.

We ventured here on a Sunday and the place was packed. It was quite difficult to get a parking space due to its popularity but with some patience you will find a spot and maybe a short walk. However, this is such a buzz of...More

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
