Most Outstanding Farmers’ Market in Australia

Bluesfest revellers should head to the legendary Mullum Farmers Markets on Friday morning to see why it was voted the ‘Most Outstanding Farmers’ Market’ in Australia. It’s a stunning venue and it has delicious breakfast choices from around the globe. 

You can stock up on all your camping and healthy snacking provisions for the days ahead, whilst tapping your toes along to live music. The farmers’ markets are a must see on any visitor’s itinerary to experience the friendly, colourful community vibe of Mullumbimby and the incredible food produced in our region. 

Treat yourself to an outdoor breakfast that showcases our local produce. Your choices include rustic Sicilian food, Korean dumplings, sushi, Indonesian street food, French crepes, vegan and raw foods, pastries, and sourdough doughnuts. You can wash all this down with locally grown coffee, smoothies, juices, cane juice and kombucha. 

Good Friday is one of the most festive days of the farmers’ market calendar. In the spirit of the Bluesfest they have three of the finest local musicians entertaining the breakfast crowds – Jerome Williams, Jesse Witney and Burning Hands. 

You’ll find all the fresh produce you need to stock up the fridge, including meat, seafood, fruit and vegetables, bread, milk and eggs, as well as delicious local nibbles such as macadamias and pecans, olives, fresh dips and award-winning farmhouse cheeses.

Those of you looking for your chocolate fix, Puremelt Chocolate will have their range of hand-made, organic, vegan, fair-trade and ethically-sourced deliciousness with 30 per cent of all profits going toward the north coast flood appeal. 

The markets’ bakers, Crabbes Creek Woodfired and Scratch Patisserie, will be bringing along their freshly baked breads and popular hot cross buns, made with organic flour and spices. Sweet n Sourdough will be bringing their doughnut twist of a hot cross bun, along with their addictive sourdough doughnuts.

Mullumbimby Good Friday Farmers Market will be held from 7–11am at the Mullumbimby Showground.
