Our Story

Mullumbimby Farmers Market began in April 2010.

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.
