Every Friday afternoon stalls selling honey, fruit, vegetables and cinnamon doughnuts are set up close to the beach in the surf club car park.

This is Evans Head and the market here is like no other.

Market coordinator Sharon Fearnside said the market was about sunshine and sea breezes.

“I want this to be a small, unique market,” she said. “I want this market to have our own vibe.”

The market is dog-friendly and safe for children with no cars in the market area.

Every week a different hot food vendor is at the market, last Friday it was curry.

The people who run the stalls are passionate about their produce, Sharon said.

She is keen to grow the number of stalls at the market and increase visitor numbers. The Evans Head Farmers Market is on every Friday 3–6pm at the car park behind the surf club.
