Byron Bay Farmers Markets
Every Thursday from 8am to 11am
The Byron Bay Farmers’ Market loves supporting local producers. This Farmers’ Market has a variety of stalls, some of which are organic, and other which are conventional local producers. The great thing about shopping at the Byron Bay Farmers Market is that the fresh produce available is constantly changing with the seasons; that being said, there are a few products that are available all year round. These range from freshly squeezed sugar cane juice and macadamia nuts, to prime cuts of beef and prawns that have been farmed in Ballina. You will also find kitchen staples, like bread, coffee, honey, and olives.

Mullum Music Festival (MMF) is a boutique festival in Mullumbimby, a quaint but vibrant little town in the hinterland of Byron Bay, NSW. The festival has gradually grown from very humble beginnings since the inaugural event back in 2008 – a memorable year for Mullum with the refurbishment and renovation of the Civic Hall, the epicentre of the festival.
The unique structure of MMF creates a special community atmosphere, adding a distinct and special flavour to the event, which festival goers hold dear to their musical hearts.
The action packed program is spread across multiple venues throughout the town. The use of existing structures is a very special aspect of the festival and reinforces not only the ‘roaming community’ vibe of the event, but also the sustainability of the town both financially and environmentally – two things which the organisers work very hard to ensure.
