Ballina Farmers Market has been cancelled for this Sunday over health risks due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in the Northern Rivers.

‘These are tough decisions,’ said Cornelia Burless from Ballina Farmers Market.

‘Market management has put a great effort into being COVID safe and the Ballina community has been great in complying with health rules,’ she told The E#cho.

‘However, knowing that we had an active case in the community it is about halting any potential spread, so the Ballina emergency management group decided that this is the best course of action for this time.’

Byron, Bangalow and Mullumbimby Farmers markets have also been cancelled in a large part due to people not complying with the COVID safety regulations.
