Mullumbimby Farmers Market began in April 2010.
Since its opening, the market has become the gathering spot for Mullumbimby’s vibrant community, re-inventing the age old tradition of a community market meeting place.
It was set up by the North Byron Farmers Market Association (operators of the New Brighton Farmers Market) who saw a need for another farmers market in the north of the Byron Shire.
The vision was to expand the traditional farmers market model to include small businesses adding value to locally grown produce.
The market would provide a wide range of food and food related products, from fresh fruit and vegetables to artisan food products, seedlings and garden products.
The market would support and encourage local food production, foster the establishment of small, local food-related businesses and strengthen local food security.
It would also help revitalise Mullumbimby’s beautiful showgrounds.
The market received massive support from the community from day one, and has firmly established itself as both a thriving marketplace and a social hub for the local community.
Mullumbimby Farmers Market, every Friday morning 7am-11am, is where you’ll see Mullum at its colourful best.
Set under magnificent fig trees in the lush foothills of Mt Chincogan, it’s a wonderful place to shop for fresh produce, meet with friends, enjoy a market brekkie and local coffee, and soak up the fun and friendly vibe.
There’s live local music each week, plus a dedicated kid’s space to keep the little ones entertained.
The market also hosts regular workshops and special events throughout the year.
The market is a not for profit organisation, which means every dollar you spend goes toward supporting local farmers, the community and a more sustainable future.
