previously Nimbin Aquarius Fair, presents a centrally located
venue in the picturesque heritage surrounds of the Nimbin Community
Centre where colourful stall-displays delight the eye and delectable
coking aromas pique the appetite. Strategically placed buskers
provide acoustic guitar music for a pleasant background sound to
round off an overall delightful market experience, the market
is close to village amenities, internet-café, one
of Nimbin’s major coffee houses and is opposite the bus stop.
Displays of unique
craft compete with exotic imports and second hand items tempt the
practitioners offer massage and allied therapies in relaxing
surrounds. Fruit and vegetables are offered at unbeatable prices and
culinary delights of freshly cooked mouth-watering dishes and snacks
make the ‘third and fifth’ Sunday at Nimbin an alternative
occasion to remember.
Situated in the grounds,
for those who prefer to eat indoors, there is an excellent
restaurant featuring a distinct ethnic decor and cuisine. Among the
many items on sale are original art works, prints and a great range
of post-cards. For patrons interested in art exhibitions, the
‘Nimbin Regional Gallery’ is another of the attractions situated in
the Community Centre and is open on market-day.
An unusual feature exists in the form of an alternative funding
system, a type of LET note that is accepted at several
of the stalls.
Also, these can be earned and spent in appropriate venues throughout
the Northern Rivers Region of NSW. The LETS Group often have a booth
at the market that offers information for those interested in an
alternative to the present system..
Market-goers at the
Nimbin Market also have the unusual opportunity of viewing a radio
station in action. NIM-FM 102.3 will arrange for visitors to view a
broadcast in progress and perhaps have an ‘on air’ experience in the
broadcasting studio. Phone: Studio on 0266 890 277 or the office on
0266 890 279 or maybe just call in person, at the studio. NIM-FM is
part of the Community Centre Complex.
