Artist Markets Cultural Trail

View all trails

Local markets are a window into the heart of any community, particularly in the country. Here you will find lovingly made crafts, innovative art, homemade goodies, fresh local produce and the odd treasure amongst all the bric a brac. There are many such markets up and down the Mid North Coast and there will always be something on nearby. However some have earned a reputation for the quality and nature of the artists who put their passion and creative endeavours on display. Most are only held once a month so check your dates carefully.
