The quality of this fishmonger is voted best on the Australian East coast for a reason! (every good restaurant in town uses their fish).

The Bay Grocer always has some great take away food, so make sure you try that on the weekends (their BBQ chicken or foccaccia is amazing).

Also great for supplies is bread / sandwiches / cookies / scones etc from Sunday Sustainable Bakery, or bread from the Farm (Bread Social, or Sparrows coffee).

Don’t miss out on the Byron Bay Food Markets, every Thursday.

Great day for a picnic on the terrace afterwards with all your catch.

Views like these just make everything taste better.
