Organisers of the Lennox Community Market say they will reopen this Sunday, January 9, with around 120 stalls at the Williams Reserve. 

The market is reopening with new management under the Byron Community Centre with Greg Curry as the new Lennox Market Manager. Site allocation will give priority to current and longstanding stallholders of the Lennox Market.

We’ve had a lot of interest from stallholders and will have a full market,’ says  Mr Curry. ‘There will be a good selection of stalls including locally made clothing and crafts, jewellery, fresh produce and a variety of food, plus some pre-loved goods and products. Market-goers can listen to laid-back tunes by local legend Micka Scene.’

Shut down last March

The market has been held at Lennox Head since the early 1980s but shut down in March 2020 owing to COVID-19. After reopening in January 2022, the Lennox Market will continue to be held every second Sunday and, where applicable, every fifth Sunday of the month from 8am until 3pm.

The market will be located at Williams Reserve directly behind the Lennox Head main street, allowing market-goers to combine a visit to Lennox Head and a swim or surf at the beach with the market.

Fun and family-friendly

Mr Curry says the vibe at Lennox Market is going to be fun and family-friendly. ‘All the stallholders and many locals are excited that the markets are coming back. We are working hard behind the scenes and will bring fresh energy to the markets so that it can become a monthly event for the Lennox community.’

The Byron Bay Community Centre operates the Byron Community Market every first Sunday of the month, the Byron Beachside Market four times a year as well as the Byron Twilight Market in Railway Park from August to April.

Profits from the Lennox Community Market will contribute to community services and programs run by the Byron Community Centre that support vulnerable members of the community.
