Lismore Makers Market
The Lismore Makers Market is Lismore’s very own handmade venue and takes place from 10am to 2pm on the first Saturday of each month from February to December. An additional festive season market runs on the third Saturday in December, providing locals with an opportunity to buy handmade and sustainable this festive season.
Running for over three years now, the market features an eclectic range of local and visiting makers, with an emphasis on eco-friendly, sustainably produced products. Ranging from the practical to uniquely quirky, the market showcases everything from upcycled reinvented clothing, kidswear, toys and homewares to functional ceramics, furniture, art prints, gift cards, jewellery and handmade soap and skincare products.
The festive season market on December 21 will feature a range of local makers and live music from Lismore’s Button Collective. Bring your shopping list and support your local makers this festive season. See you there!

Soul Gold Jewellery
Solid gold or pure silver lasts longer than we do!
Thoughtful gifts of meaning become heirlooms and precious mementos.

Mullum’s own iconic landmark, our heart country, a personal symbol, or a simple shell from the beach you walk – all make beautiful gifts.
When we see our gift, that flash of light that caught the sun, we remember what’s real. The token of our appreciation, made solid.
You might find a precious beauty made lovingly, already waiting. Call Zoe to view, or order now; also from Facebook page.
