Farmers markets are on

Both the state and federal governments have confirmed that farmers’ markets are an essential service, so the farmers’ markets will continue to operate unless instructed otherwise, but with even tighter social distancing measures.

‘On the whole, everyone has been really positive’, Mr Carey said. ‘While some might feel the measures we have taken are extreme, these are extreme times. And it is during times like these that we realise how crucial our local farmers’ markets are to both our community and local food security. We appreciate the community’s understanding and support on this.’

Byron Farmers Market is held every Thursday 7am–11am at the Cavanbah Centre and every Saturday morning 7–11am behind the Bangalow Pub.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
