“Lismore Car Boot Market - 1st & 3rd Sunday each month. Great undercover market held in part of the undercover parking of the local shopping centre - so good anytime of year! Here you will find a vast array of food vendors, good coffee (Three Hearts - say Hi to Zac... you will definitely hear him call your name!) plus you will find local artisan wares, hugh array of plants and lots of treasures to enjoy! It's a great morning out - perfect to get an early start at... ”
