Sundays come alive at the local markets

If you are a shopper like me, you won’t have any trouble spending a whole day at one of our fantastic markets. You will find many unique stalls with every thing from the standard home made soaps and candles to beautifully printed fabrics.  Most stall holders do the rounds of all the monthly markets, with Bangalow and Byron being the larger markets.  While you will need to make sure you take cash to the markets most stall holders now have EFTPOS machines.

Market Schedule

Every Saturday in Summer Located in Railway Park Jonson Street opposite the post office and visitor information center the Byron Bay Artisan Market operates throughout summer every Saturday evening 5-9pm. This small market is lovely to stroll through on a balmy Saturday evening. Admire the handmade jewellery, candles and crafts or have a massage. You can enjoy a bite to eat and listen to live entertainment.
