Uniquely Handmade Local Items at Coffs Harbour Markets
Made with Love Markets in Coffs Harbour has one last event on Sunday 25th November 2018 before Christmas. Each year the markets are held in March, June, August and November on Level 1 Carpark at Park Beach Plaza, Coffs Harbour. The very first market was held in 2011 with 27 stallholders. Since then, the markets have grown and grown and now attract between 3,000 to 5,000 visits to each market with 100 stallholders offering local handmade and original items for sale.

Being the biggest and first dedicated handmade market in Coffs Harbour, the aim of the organisers is showcase local, handmade, boutique and unique items that you will not find in other stores. Stallholders come from all over New South Wales and appreciate consumers desire for totally handmade items.
Due to an agreement with the Park Beach Plaza, these markets are unable to accept food van, coffee vans or takeaway food carts, although, homemade goods such as cakes, cookies, jam, chutneys and cupcakes are accepted. All market stallholders must register with the council to have a stall at the Plaza. More information, with regard to these requirements, can be sourced on the Made with Love Markets Website.
Stallholders are already displaying their creations on the Made with Love Markets Facebook page. If there is something, in particular, you wish to have custom-made before Christmas, contact the seller and you can collect it at the market.
Entry to the market is a gold coin, with proceeds going to charity. There will be plenty of fun for kids and lucky door prizes.
