Often accompanied by the sounds of live music from performers and buskers, the Byron Bay area’s community markets offer a broad assortment of goods, including bric-a-brac, antiques, clothing and plenty of arts and crafts. Held over several hours, community markets, including the Byron Bay Community Market and the Bangalow Markets, also present a great opportunity to sample hot food made from the region’s flavoursome produce.
