Keep up with Armagh i

Vintage clothes, candles, art, fantastic food and more to swell Shambles Market

Shambles Market, Armagh

A special launch event is being planned as Armagh’s famous Shambles Market is about to increase its offering!

A number of new traders have been lined up to sell their wares at the Shambles Yard and add to the already thriving offering.

They will be introduced on Friday, September 11, at an event that will also include live music.

Through the market start up programme which began in May, new traders will be selling an enticing range of new products.

These include everything from handmade candles and vintage clothes and accessories to upcycled art pieces! And there will be a mouthwatering range of specialty baked goods and gourmet hotdogs, as well as a local award-winning butcher and a thirst-quenching range of loose leaf teas.

Lord Mayor Darryn Causby said: “It is fantastic to see the entrepreneurial flair which has been nurtured through this programme.

“These new businesses are a welcome addition to the Shambles Variety Market, enhancing the offer already available.

“The council is proud the programme will not only help to rejuvenate the market but also the local economy and I would encourage the local community to attend the launch and support these businesses.”

Call in throughout the day, sit down and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and sample the delicious food on offer and soak up the sound of The Bare Necessities.

The launch will also see one lucky customer winning a fantastic hamper filled with market goodies.

The programme, run by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in association with Lara Goodall Consulting and Nuala Foley & Associates, was designed to help individuals and small companies get extra help and professional support to set up and run their own stall at the market, which runs on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The Shambles Variety Market, at Cathedral Road, is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 8am until 4pm and there are both indoor and outdoor stalls offering a wide range of different products for sale.

Customers can also avail of the free on site car parking.
