Marie Sherd Mullumbimby
We’re in danger of losing the charming monthly Mullum Market. Please don’t let this happen. It’s such a treasure. It’s been operating for 30 years beside the Heritage Museum (in Myokum Street). This building was the original Mullumbimby Post Office that was moved to that site when the new post office was built.
The market operates on the third Saturday of every month and gives stall holders the opportunity to sell beautiful handmade creations of all kinds, plants, succulents, their unwanted bricabrac, clothing, jewellery etc. The food is fabulous and you can eat Thai, Japanese, Indian and more, or sample the excellent coffees and cakes while you enjoy some of the best local music around.
Dead Set was the band playing at the last market, to a very appreciative audience. A bunch of very experienced musicians playing a variety of musical genres including Cajun and New Orleans that never fails to brush the cobwebs off the mojo in these troubled times.
A lot of people don’t know about this market, perhaps because the Farmers Markets are incredibly popular – and no wonder. But this market is different. It’s eclectic and diverse in what it offers and if we don’t show up to support it, it will disappear. It’s endangered.
