We Love Bananas

We Love Bananas

There are many colorful characters living in Byron Bay, my original hometown and home of the Bill Conner (BC) Hat factory

Banana Craig is one of those characters. You can find him every Thursday morning at the local farmer’s market selling his Ladyfinger bananas and wearing a BC Hat.

If he's not surfing or at the farmer’s market, he is tending to his amazing farm in the heart of northern N.S.W.

Check out this short clip on Mr. Banana himself as well as some great shots from his Insta feed @byronbaybananaman.

Support your community and consider buying locally grown. And, if you live in Byron Bay, go get yourself some shade at Bill Conner's hat factory after a trip to visit Banana Craig at the farmer’s market.
