Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    There are a confusing number of markets in Byron Bay. Market signs are everywhere in Byron Bay so it’s quite a challenge to figure out which one is which and when it’s on.
    This TA listing is about the Community Market, the biggest and most popular. However there are also the Beachside Markets (only held 4 times a year), the Farmers Markets (Thursday mornings) and the Twilight Markets (every Saturday, from Oct-April, 4 - 9pm).
    The Community Market is held on the 1st Sunday of the month, with an extra two special dates in summer.
    It’s spread out over Railway Park and the surrounding streets, which get closed off for the morning. It seems to start around 8am and extends into the mid-afternoon.
    The grassy area around the park is the nicest part. The stalls run alongside the old tracks and this is where most of the food and juice stalls are clustered and where you can lie out on the grass and listen to live music.
    It’s a sprawling market. They advertise something like 300 stalls and there probably are that many. It’s pretty overwhelming.
    It was also less bohemian and more commercial than I’d expected.
    There are still one-off pieces and people designing or crafting what they sell but many of the stalls look very similar and there are lots and lots of clothing, beads, hats and jewellery.
    Disappointingly, we didn’t see any second hand book or record places or antique stalls.
    If you want to cover everything, you’d have to be quite methodical but this gets very tedious, very quickly. If you just want to browse, or aren’t that into markets or don’t have much time, you can easily skip whole sections and you won’t even notice.
    I bought a couple of things but the best part was grabbing some food and juices and finding a spot in the shade on the grass where a local band was playing.
    I can recommend the juice van & the Watermelon Ginger Zinger (look for the van wth all the colourful signs). The hot roast lamb rolls were also great. Dripping with rich gravy and mint, they were a handful but were delicious.
    NOTE: Parking is horrendous so if you have a car and get lucky enough to see a spot, grab it. We parked some way out of town and walked back which we found easier than trying to navigate the busy streets.

    We made a special point of attending these much hyped weekly markets. We had planned to eat here and hoped for some interesting local art and craft.

    The stalls: there weren’t many and those that were there were fairly dull and uninspiring, with three exceptions- the man carving up coins had some interesting work, the wooden bookcases were nice and the star of the night was the young man selling original paintings. All in all, the rest were a drab bag of dusty clothes, leather bound journals that looked mass produced, and tired goods not worth much at all.

    The food: well, no one was buying any and some stalls were unattended. As a general rule of thumb I don’t buy food if no one else seems interested - so I didn’t try it. To be fair it’s hard to buy food when the stall is unattended or the attendants that are there aren’t actually cooking.

    Maybe it’s better in the warmer months?
