There is a vast selection of mouthwatering fresh vegetable booths, in addition to stands selling unusual breakfast foods and steaming coffee. Unwind, take in the scenery, and revel in the weekly musical offerings from up-and-coming local talent while you’re here.

You will also be able to find a variety of goods that are produced locally by local bakers and other local businesses. These include locally produced sustainable meats like as cattle, pork, poultry, and seafood that was farmed in the Ballina area, as well as artisan bread baked in a wood-fired oven, excellent local honey, and a variety of locally roasted nuts.
The Mullumbimby Farmers’ Market is a wonderful location for a number of activities, including purchasing your weekly groceries, catching up with friends, and unwinding with a cup of coffee and some music on a Friday morning.
Mullumbimby Community Market
This is not like the other markets because it was established way back in 1989, and it is more than simply a market! The Mullumbimby Community Market is a bustling, family-friendly event that serves as a means for the neighbourhood to get together and sell their wares, while also enjoying delicious food and live music from talented local musicians. Every third Saturday of the month, between the hours of 8 am and 2 pm, the market is held in Summers Park, which is located at the corner of Stuart and Myokum Streets in Mullumbimby.
At the Mullumbimby Community Market, there are a variety of local stallholders selling everything from artisan clothing, jewellery, and home wares to plants, up-cycled and retro stalls, eco-products, massage, face painting, fresh juices, healing crystals, and grassy areas to relax on. There is always a chance to find a good deal or something unique at this market. On market days, dogs are not permitted in the park at any time.
Just 45 minutes from the Gold Coast and 10 minutes from the beach at Brunswick Heads, this market is said to have one of the best local moods and provides a friendly, welcoming, and all-inclusive experience for everyone. It is also conveniently located. Brunswick Heads beach is only 10 minutes away.
Visit the remarkable Brunswick Valley Historical Society Museum while you are at the Market. The museum is located right in the middle of the market and contains a wealth of information regarding the region’s past. There is also plenty of “old school” machinery on display and exhibits that describe how the Valley developed.
The Mullumbimby Community Market donates one hundred percent of the money it earns to the museum in order to ensure that it can remain operational and continue to document the history of the neighbourhood. People are astounded by what they find when they finally uncover Mullumbimby’s deepest, darkest, and most closely guarded secret.
