Will Byron become the Malibu of the antipodes?

Here’s another reason for millennials to be marching on the street. We found out last week that on census day 2021, 15 per cent of the dwellings in the Byron Shire were unoccupied (2,348 places to be precise). That figure was 30 per cent in Byron Bay itself, three times the national average.

Since the advent of the Farmers Market at the showgrounds in Mullumbimby attendances at the Mullumbimby Market in the grounds of the Museum have dropped off. One of the reasons is possibly because some of the fruit and veg stalls have disappeared from the Mullum Market. Also, whereas the Farmers Market is on every Friday the Mullum Market is on only once a month – every third Saturday. So there are two markets within 48 hours of each other once a month.

I personally would be very sad to see the demise of the Mullum Market, situated as it is in its gorgeous location in the grounds of the Museum with Saltwater Creek at the back door and the Community Gardens thriving just across the creek. Once a month on a Saturday morning it’s a delight to wander around the market because you never know what you’re going to find. Each market always seems to throw up a surprise.

The Mullum Market has been thriving for at least 20 years. It has a wonderful community atmosphere. We mustn’t let it disappear.

  1. there are far to many markets in this area already there numbers should be limited.a lot of the stalls are no longer selling home made or home grown goods anymore and they hurting most of the shops in town who have to pay rent /electricity/wages /super and the list goes on.so council should be looking to reduce market numbers.
