Some wholesome news from the weekend

BLUESFEST 2021 STALLHOLDERS • A GOOD NEWS STORY

Some of the stories that we heard over the weekend lifted our spirits, reminding us to keep our heads up.



HOLY MOLY EMPANADAS

In the weeks leading up to Bluesfest, Joachin and Maria had worked every day to make more than 2,500 empanadas to sell at the festival.

After the cancellation left them with a huge amount of food to shift, they set up an online shop and managed to sell out all of their empanadas to locals who picked up their purchases from Mullumbimby over the weekend… we heard there were lines down the street!

JERRY’S SMOKEHOUSE

Jerry made an online sale and pick up store over the weekend from his Mullumbimby commercial kitchen and sold out everything!… and off the back of its success, they are now making this a weekly thing!

Order online and pick up in Mullumbimby every Friday.

BYRON BAY MARKETS ON SUNDAY

They generously opened up a few spots and squeezed in some of our stallholders, Pipi Cucu – traditional Argentine Empanadas, and Samba Catering – Spanish Paella.

Pipi Cucu then had a pop up set up in the Beach Hotel for the rest of the weekend – pictured here!

The local community support has been unreal!

THE AVOCADO HUT

Attracted the local community and holiday goers to their café in Byron Bay with a 2 for 1 burger Happy Hour deal on Easter Monday.

Sounds like it was a major success!





THE BYRON BAY JAPANESE KITCHEN • DOMA CAFÉ

Doma Café in Federal was due to be shut over the Easter Long Weekend instead, they opened their doors with a special Bluesfest menu and had a huge weekend!

Thanks to everyone who went up into the Hinterland on the weekend to support them.

Senorita’s Feisty Mexican

Trish from Senorita’s set up an online portal from which you could order and drive to collect from their pop up in Cudgen.

NICE WORK!
