Late night market opening to bear fruit

LATE night shoppers will now be able to visit Belfast's St George's Market on Thursdays from this evening.

LATE night shoppers will now be able to visit Belfast's St George's Market on Thursdays from this evening.

Promoted with the message 'Get fresh twice a week', the new market, launched by Belfast City Council and the National Market Traders Federation, will operate from 3pm until 9pm.

The organisers hope it will capitalise on the popularity of late night shopping in the city on Thursdays.

They feel it will also attract new customers who are unable to visit the traditional Friday morning market, which has now extended its opening hours from 6am to 2pm.

Such has been the popularity of St George's Market that there is now a waiting list of some 60 traders seeking a pitch.

Another new development is a specialist food section which has been added to both the Thursday and Friday markets.

Customers are offered a new range of delicatessen foods including olives, oysters, specialist cheeses and salads.

A free market-link shuttle bus will operate on Thursday and Fridays between Donegall Place (outside Boots) and the market, leaving every 20 minutes.
