Farmers Market

Absolute-Bangalow-LogoLocated at the top end of the village behind the Hotel, every Saturday morning, the Farmers of the region bring their produce to sell to the local and visitors’ between 7am to 11am. A must to stroll through and if you don’t stock up on produce at the least take home some macadamia paste or local coffee.

Monthly Market

The Bangalow markets on the 4th Sunday of every month are a gathering of locals, a get-together of; artists, artisans, bakers, therapists, farmers and friends which attract visitors from afar to enjoy the relaxed day. The Bangalow Market Day is a treat for day-trippers, a retreat from the rush of everyday life.

Part of the continuing success of the market is the beautiful grounds the markets are held in, which are dominated by eleven huge camphor laurel trees which provide welcome shade and rustling leaves and a magic forest atmosphere.

If you are coming to the market you will have to leave your dog at home. Parking is available in the showgrounds at the market. Parking fee is $2
