Mullumbimby Farmers Market Pop Up.

There were a lot of smiles in Mullumbimby on Friday morning as people driving into Mullum were greeted with the Farmers Market’s superhero banana man Tim Green, redirecting Mullum Farmers Market traffic to Byron Shire Council car park in Station Street in Mullum.

The Mullumbimby Showgrounds were under a massive layer of muddy silt making it impossible to navigate by car or foot.

Allie Godfrey, Market Manager, says, ‘With all the supermarket shelves empty of fresh produce it seemed crazy we couldn’t get our local farmers’ markets abundance of fresh produce out to our community. After chatting to a few locals an idea about using the Council car park was put out there late afternoon on Thursday.

‘We spoke to the powers that be at the Council, and thanks to Malcolm Robertson, our dream became a reality!

‘So, the market went ahead, making our community and farmers really happy. Some of the farmers offered free produce to anyone that needed it. Plus, collections boxes of fresh produce and money were filled by both our farmers and community and dropped off at the Civic Hall.

‘Whilst this is a devasting time for so many in our community. If there’s a little ray of sunshine it’s the extraordinary way our community comes together to support each other in times of need.’

New Brighton Farmers Market is on Tuesdays 8–11am and Mullumbimby Farmers Market is on Fridays 7–11am.
