‘We are already so excited about the response to the market, with incredible local foodies approaching us’, organisers Kate Walsh and Kirrily Sinclair said.  

‘We are looking to have stalls by amazing local chefs and artisan food and drink makers that are also connected to our local farmers’.

They say the aim of the market ‘is to connect eaters with local chefs and artisans that are using the best produce our region has to offer’.

‘You’ll see all your favourite food in one place – tacos, burgers, barbecue, dumplings, ice creams and more. There will be plenty of healthy dinner offerings for the kids, and a dedicated craft corner and face painting to keep them occupied.

‘Most importantly, it will be a monthly celebration of our region, and a place for our community to gather and feast!’

The market will be held on the first Friday of every month at the Bangalow Primary School, from 5 till 9pm. 

Kate adds that stallholders are welcome to apply. ‘We are anticipating around 20–30 stallholders and we are getting some pretty amazing people, so we are really excited’.
