Markets

If your a shopper like me, you wont have any trouble spending a whole day at one of our fantastic markets. You will find many unique stalls with every thing from the standard home made soaps and candles to beautifully printed fabrics.  Most stall holders do the rounds of all the monthly markets, with Bangalow and Byron being the larger markets.  While you will need to make sure you take cash to the markets most stall holders now have EFTPOS machines.
