Lismore eats

For the past seven months, Lismore has been enjoying a rotating range of food stalls at the region’s first dedicated food market. On the final Friday of each month a lovely crowd gathers at Lismore Showground to sample a new range of our region’s finest food vendors.

If you feel like you’ve seen it all in markets, why not take a trip to Lismore and sample something out of your local comfort zone? Part of the reason for its popularity is that there is always something different at Lismore Eats.

Lismore Eats is owned and operated by Jacob Stone, a local event organiser who has been working in various capacities in the events industry for the past thirteen years. This is the first event he has started from the ground up.

‘I started Lismore Eats after noticing the popularity of the August-September rush of food festivals and talking to locals about the need for a more regular event, one that could be enjoyed all year round,’ Jacob said.

‘So far, the event has been really well received by the locals, with some now making it their monthly dinner with friends.’

Lismore Eats has live music, onsite parking, and free entry. Additionally, partnering with Northern Rivers Jumping brings a new ride every month for the children.

The next Lismore Eats is on Friday 26 April 2019 and will feature a range of stallholders, live music by Joe O’Keffee, children’s rides, and the Jom Makam Burger Challenge. To stay up to date about the range of stallholders make sure you visit www.lismoreeats.com or search Lismore Eats on Facebook!

There are limited spaces in April for new stallholders to join. Anyone interested in having a stall should call Jacob on 0466 415 172. Stallholders interested in future markets should visit www.lismoreeats.com and click stallholder applications under the Get Involved menu.
