Harbourside Markets

At their temporary location Park Beach Reserve adjacent to the Coffs Harbour Surf Club 8am to 2pm.

An authentic outdoor market held every Sunday set alongside the Jetty Foreshore and historic jetty in Coffs Harbour but this will be the last week in its current location for approximately six months whilst the foreshore redevelopment is carried out.

From Sunday, April 9 it will be in its temporary location at Park Beach Reserve adjacent to the Surf Club and Coffs Creek ocean outlet.

There is a huge range of unique art and craft, fresh local produce, tasty gourmet food and delicious beverages. Their philosophy is locally made, locally grown so you are guaranteed a unique experience.

Fun and entertainment for everyone with activities, live music and performers every week. They regularly host workshops, festivals and events.

Plenty of undercover seating to eat and sit down, enjoy the atmosphere and relax.

For more info about the stallholders, live music and location head to harboursidemarkets.com.au

Of course we endeavour to be there every Sunday if we are not our touring so why not come down and talk to us about a tour as a gift for that special someone or see the Coffs Coast in a very unique way.
