Public markets are conducted on both public and private land within the Tweed.
Markets on private land require development consent approval and are operated by a private person or organisation in accordance with the conditions of consent. Further information about obtaining such an approval can be obtained from Council’s Development Assessment Unit. A list of markets conducted in the Tweed is provided below.
Markets are conducted on public land under the control of Council in various locations including Pottsville, Kingscliff and Tweed Heads. These markets are not directly controlled or operated by Council. Each three years Council calls for expressions of interest from any person or group interested in operating the markets. Once the successful submission is determined Council issues the successful group with an approval under the Local Government Act, 1993 to operate the market for a three year period. All advertisement, bookings and day to day management of the market is undertaken by the current approval holder.
There are restrictions over the sale of food at markets held on public land. A restricted number of food vans which sell ‘conventional food and drink’ are permissible, with the market operator determining which food vans may operate. Food vans and other food vendors are required to be inspected and approved by Council before operating within the Tweed.
