Can’t get enough the “craft movement” or the “maker movement. The Byron Beachside Market will again take in the views of the Pacific from the Main Beach foreshore with a new winter artisan market on Sat 11 July. Unique handmade arts and crafts are a highlight with many works inspired by the local landscape, culture and lifestyle.
The creative stallholders are a colourful, creative, crafty bunch whose company and creations we enjoy so much. Alongside the jewellery, ceramics, photography, sculptures, homemade body care products and clothing are massage therapists, face painters, hair stylists and henna artists.
Market Manager, Tess Cullen said ‘this market prides itself on providing locally made products from the unusual to the unique. We showcase an impressive array of handmade arts and craft, food and entertainment with plenty to appeal to both locals and visitors.”
Visitors can enjoy a tasty crepe for breakfast or lunch, or some Japanese gyoza, Wood fired pizza, freshly made juices, hot potatoes, curries, great coffee, samosas, thoughtfulness and just good old love. So imagine a day out entertained by local band Boadfoot or soloist Andrew Morris in the main Food Court. At one end of the kilometer foreshore walk The Old Blues Guys will be set up near Peddle Power Juice at the Surf Club end and Luke Bennett situated Coffee Oasis towards the Clarks Beach end.
As such we have created a relaxed, easy-going craft market for everyone to come together and share a day out in the winter sun. Be sure to take your time, meet the makers and support small industry. Chances are you’ll be walking away with a very special reminder of your time in Byron Bay. The market runs from 8am until 4pm on Sat 11 July.
