Browsing Byron Bay’s eclectic Sunday market

Whenever Andres and I met travellers overseas who were keen to visit Australia, almost all of them had a desire to include Byron Bay on their itinerary, and fair enough too. It’s a country town with an incredible natural landscape, a great surf break, alternative open minded people and close to some incredible hinterland escapes.

One thing that most tourists include in a stay at Byron is a visit to the regular Sunday market. It’s a place bursting with colour, music, unique handmade local arts, tasty exotic food and local produce. It’s also a great people watch.

Ask any Byron local and they’ll tell you that at this time of year it’s a place they best avoid, so crowded are the markets with tourists; also with the intense Summer heat it’s a bit light on shady spots. Locals who use the markets to do their regular vegetable shop will also tell you that the Farmers Markets are the one to get to.

There are a lot of other markets in the area; there’s a good one at Lennox Head which sits right between the breezy beach and a beautiful tea tree lake, and my favourite market spot at Bangalow, where the stalls are covered with the shade of some beautiful old fig trees. Whichever market you get to, you’ll definitely find something to help relieve you of your cash.

All the details of when and where the markets are on can be found over here. For a virtual browse we hope you enjoy the photos below.
