Byron Community Markets are a fanfare of colour and music amidst a myriad of exotic flavours & other products. Local art and craft work fill the market site – beautiful things made by people using unusual and natural materials sit side by side with colourful imports from Africa and Asia. Within the diversity of over 300 stalls there is something for everyone.
Upcoming market dates 2016: Sunday 2 October: Sunday 6 November: Sunday 4 December
Preference is given to local stallholders who make or grow their produce allowing the market to play a valuable role as a business incubator. Throughout the market site over 70% of stalls are filled with the 100% locally made creative delights.
Please note if you live outside the 4 Shires (Byron, Ballina, Lismore and Tweed), the summer markets are very busy and you have little chance of getting a site. If you still wish to register come to the Market ground at 8am on the day, to see if there are any sites left.
The October market is very busy, no applications from outside of the area will be accepted.

Each month two local charities collect donations at the entrances to the market, giving a major boost to their fundraising. There are initiatives in place to ensure waste minimisation and maximum recycling. The Centre team is currently working to improve the Market site by planting trees and native plants.
