Rules and Regulations

We established a set of rules and regulations for our Byron Community Market. They are a clarification and update of previous R&R from a few years ago, especially as a lot of procedure has gone digital. Please click here to open the document and to familiarise yourself with them.

Please note, casual stallholders are not allowed to bring their car onsite until they have been allocated a site.

Charity of the Day

Each month market management invites two local charitable organisations to be the Charity of the Day. The charities collect donations at the two entrances to the market.

They can also raise money through a stallholders’ raffle which is drawn on the day. Only these charities can approach stallholders to buy raffle tickets at the market. Each charity is allocated half the market site. Charities should go to the Information Tent for a map of their half.

 Criteria  

The Charity of the Day is available for non-profit community organisations or registered charities either based in Byron Bay or directly benefiting Byron Bay. Charities must have the relevant ‘Authority to Fundraise’ licence and their own public liability insurance.

Application procedure

Once a letter of application is received (marketsadmin@byroncentre.com.au), market administration will place charities in a queue based on the time of their last attendance. Charities applying for the first time may be placed before those requesting a second or subsequent opportunity.

Market administration will notify the appropriate charities a month in advance and give them an information sheet.

On market day, charities should go to the Information Tent for identification badges and chalk for adding the charity’s details to the noticeboards at the entrances.

In return for the privilege of being the charity of the day, market management requests that charity gate attendants advise people that they cannot bring animals onto the market grounds. This is a Byron Shire Council policy. Market management has the final discretion on decisions regarding the Charity of the Day.

Charities are asked to inform the market management of their takings for the day so the management can monitor the effectiveness of each market entrance and include the information in reporting.

Charity Stalls

Local charities that reside in or directly assist the people of Byron Bay may apply for a casual stall site at a reduced rate.
