Our Community Market
By guest author Sarah Webb
Operating on the first Sunday of every month, this market offers a communal-based platform for vendors and attendees to come together in order to strengthen the community.
The market offers a collection of locally sourced produce, flavourful nibbles, eccentric clothing, art, unique Byron Bay products and is complemented by a fabulous exhibition of Byron’s’ local musical talent which is sure to leave attendees exiting the market in wonderment.
History of the Markets
Byron Bay Community Markets was founded in the mid-1980’s. Since its development, it has attracted people from all walks of life. Majida Steinfeld, assistant manager of the Byron Community Market of 8 years, stated that her favourite element of the Markets was “meeting the huge amount of diverse people”. This integration of diversity has initialised a strong state of community and a flourishment in Byron’s uniqueness.
The Byron Community Markets could not be put together without a dedicated team, fabulous volunteers and of course, the wonderful works of the Byron Bay community. This is a truly special event which incorporates both diversity and inclusion to create community.
