The Byron Farmers Market will be moving to a temporary new home at the Cavanbah Centre Byron Bay from July.

Council is calling on the community to continue to show their support for our farmers on Thursday mornings.

As Farmer’s Market Manager Tom explains – there will be plenty of parking, (no potholes!) and it’s only 5 minutes from town.

The move is necessary as we’ll be commencing the construction of the Bypass on Butler St from July 11.

For more information about the market move visit the Byron Farmers Market Facebook page.

More information from our Media Release today: Byron Bay’s markets to be temporarily relocated Byron Bay’s popular monthly community market and the weekly farmers market are to be temporarily relocated for six months while the Byron bypass is being constructed. From July this year the community market will move to the beachfront and the farmers market will move to the Cavanbah Centre and locals and visitors who love the markets are urged to continue the great tradition of their monthly poke around artisan stalls or doing their weekly shop and buying amazing produce. “Our markets are great cultural icons of our community and amazing economic incubators and all Councillors are strong supporters of the markets and the fabulous businesses that trade there,” Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, said. The operators of both markets have been working closely with Council for months, trying to find alternative sites for the markets. “Staff and market operators have gone through an exhaustive process to find temporary sites, on either Council-managed or private land, that will accommodate stall holders and visitors and the beachfront and Cavanbah Centre are seen to be the most viable venues available,” Mayor Richardson said. “Certainly there are constraints with the beachfront location for the community market with traffic a key consideration and this is one thing we will be monitoring closely. “Similarly there are aspects of the Cavanbah Centre that aren’t perfect for the farmers market including the move away from the town centre. “But when you balance the constraints with cancellation of the markets for six months this is the best option. “Market stalls are businesses providing regular incomes for people and families, many of them locals, and to cancel the markets would have a huge impact on their livelihoods. “Change is difficult for people but this is only short-term so I am hoping that local residents and regular market goers will make a conscious decision to continue to support the markets, and the stall holders, as they have done for years,” Mayor Richardson said. ”Keep supporting, keep loving our markets and keep the tradition of a great experience alive,” he said. The markets will move back to the Butler Street Reserve in February 2020. For more interviews contact Simon Richardson, Byron Shire Mayor, on 0427 076 834 or call Claire McGarry, Place Manager, on 0417 486 891.

Thank you for doing your best. I will still ride my bike to the market. A bit more exercise never hurt anyone!

Should of done this years ago. Here’s to being able to get to work on time now on a Thursday. Yay

Where it would be at the Cavanbah Centre? In the concrete area near the car parking or in the soccer fields ? I think moving the market on a concrete surface would damage the look/appeal of the market. It would affect its business volume 😕 Why it was not moved to the beachfront?

Byron Farmers Market has called Butler St Reserve home for 17 years so it will be a big change for all of us (market-goers and farmers) - but it is temporary. We understand that this does not suit everyone, but we have done our best to try to overcome any obstacles presented. For those of you who drive, it's only five minutes more (from town, less from outside of town) and there's plenty of free parking. For those who ride, there's a bike track straight to the Cav. We will be providing a free shuttle bus for those who would normally walk to the farmers market (details to come). We are doing everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible for everyone. Please support us in this by continuing to shop local and supporting our farmers🙏

Markets at the beachfront is a joke and a kick in the guts to local residents, were they consulted in this decision or just the stall holders ? Your bringing more traffic to the heart of town where local residents only have a few months break from the hordes of tourists. How about considering the residents for once !
