MARKET GUIDE

The Byron experience is not complete without a visit to one of the regions craft and produce markets. The Byron Shire is one of huge social diversity and the local markets play a key role in the culture of the area. These markets are not only where beautiful locally grown produce and exciting and exotic wares can be found but also a way of experiencing and supporting the community. They have become a place where people meet, where recipes are swapped, where new and exciting exotic crafts and artisans can be found. They have become the showcase for the musically talented, for holistic and alternate views, for those wanting a different way of life. Be sure to save some time in your schedule for an early morning stroll around one of the farmers markets sipping on a special blend of home grown chai or a day at one of the art and craft markets listening to music, meeting friends and experiencing the Byron way of life.
