After the Byron Bay Farmers’ Market became very popular within the local community, the Byron Farmers’ Market Association decided to initiate another Farmers’ Market in the neighbouring town of Bangalow. The Market began in 2004, and is still a popular place for people to pick up their weekly fruit and veg.
The Bangalow Farmers’ Market is held each Saturday morning from 8am until 11am. It is located at 1 Byron Street (in the Bangalow Hotel car park), right in the town of Bangalow.
Although this is a fairly small Farmers’ Market, it has everything you need to stock up your pantry with local produce. You will find a range of organic fruit that is grown locally, fresh vegetables that change with the season, as well as baked goods, bread, preserves, and nuts. You will also be able to grab a cup of coffee.
Supporting local farmers is a great way to support the community. The Byron Farmers’ Market Association works closely with both organic and conventional local farmers to ensure that both the Byron and the Bangalow Farmers’ Markets are a viable business venture. This association also makes sure that produce is priced fairly, and is of a very high quality.
The produce at the Bangalow Farmers’ Market does not have to travel as far as the produce in supermarkets. This means that the fruit and veg will be much fresher, and will produce a much small carbon footprint.
After the Farmers’ Market, explore the quaint town of Bangalow. Grab breakfast at one of the many gourmet cafes, and enjoy your Saturday.
