After announcing a new Bangalow market three weeks ago, Eat Street Bangalow organisers say they have been overwhelmed with applications from local chefs and artisan food and drink makers.

Eat Street will launch at the Bangalow Primary School this Friday, February 5, from 5pm till 9pm.

Entry is by a $2 donation.

Co-organiser Kate Walsh told The Echo, ‘It is a testament to the thriving local food scene that we have had such an amazing response’. 

‘And even better, we have had a mix of local legends coming on board, like Harvest, and 100 Mile Table (catch them in March), and newer up-and-coming chefs and artisans.

Music, food and kids entertainment

‘At the market, you’ll find restaurant quality dishes, using local produce, from stalls and food trucks.

‘The stalls will be joined by local musicians Black Train, a performance by the amazing Cassettes and a visit from the Shire Choir, along with rides and a craft corner for the kids!’
