The Byron Bay Community Association (BBCA) manages numerous markets in Byron Bay. These markets showcase the grass-roots of the Northern Rivers creative heart to all who visit here. Amidst the dynamic and lively atmosphere at each market, we find new ideas, new products, and alternative ways of being.
As part of this Byron Markets is committed to supporting local residents in the establishment of their business enterprises and gives preference to local stallholders who make, bake, sew or grow what they sell.
The BBCA is a not-for-profit social enterprise that is entirely self-funded through income and project grants but receives no ongoing income from Federal, State or Local Governments. Through the Community Centre, a range of projects, services and events for locals and visitors have been established.
All profits raised at the BCM, e.g. stallholder fees, are used through the Community Centre for community services to support locals in need. Our goal is to identify and understand community needs, working towards creating a compassionate, just and socially inclusive society whilst enhancing and strengthening community capacity.
Some of the Community Centre’s services include:
