There are not a lot of markets that run every Sunday throughout the year. One that comes to mind is the Harbourside Markets at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores that operates from 8am to 2pm.

They pride themselves on putting on a great market for everyone to come along to. So whether you want to go next Sunday or a Sunday in a weeks' time or a couple of months you will still be able to go, as it is on every Sunday for 2016.

It has been a couple of years since I have visited Coffs Harbour, but I can still remember walking along the beautiful jetty in Coffs Harbour.

There will be plenty of stalls with fresh produce like herb, tomatoes, eggs, fruit, vegetables, bush food, meats, oils, nuts and teas.

You may be looking for something for the home like candles, paintings, sea shells and much more.

And what about something to spruce up that garden. There will be plenty of bushes, trees, climbing vines, ferns and succulents. I pretty sure there will be something there to fill that space you have in your garden.

This authentic outdoor market bursting at the seams with a great range things to wear, items for the children and if you are feeling a bit peckish you could tuck into a gourmet pizza, a waffle, sushi or cool down with a cup of shaved ice.

Each Sunday there are around 40 different stalls that you can stroll around. Listed above are a few. If you would like to find out what other vendors are there just click here.

While you are there you could sit back in one of their deck chairs, sipping on a delicious coffee while listening to free live music and entertainment. A few years ago they had Brian Cadd and Russell Morris do a gig there. How cool would have that been!


At the time of putting this article together, during the month of February, you will be able to listen and marvel at the great sounds from a number of talented artists.

The Harbourside Markets is a sustainable market filled with locally grown produce and locally hand produced goods. They provide a community market where local growers and small businesses and hobbyists can supply the local community and visitors with fresh produce, food and locally made products and services.

They also provide free stall space each week to local Charities and Not for Profit organisations to raise funds or increase awareness.


There is also space available for groups and individuals wishing to run workshops or classes at the markets.
