Continental Market set to visit Derry

By Donna Deeney

The award-winning Continental Market is on its way to Londonderry ahead of the bank holiday weekend.

For two days this coming week, Tuesday and Wednesday (May 29-30), the Derry air around the Guildhall Square will be filled with the aroma of global culinary treats.

With traders from 26 countries as far afield as Morocco, India, Belgium, France, Russia, Tanzania, Spain and China, the market is sure to have something for every tastebud.

During their stay in Northern Ireland, the market’s visiting traders will be exporting not only Northern Ireland’s reputation as an exemplary host, they will also be supporting local retailers by encouraging people to shop in their town and city centres.

Chief Executive of Northern Ireland Independent Retail and Traders Association (NIIRTA) Glyn Roberts welcomed the return of the touring Continental Market and the boost it would bring to Northern Irish retail.

“The Continental Market tour is an excellent initiative, which brings something different and diverse to Northern Ireland. It helps attract visitors to towns and city centres, many of who go on to shop in other retailers near by. In this celebratory year it’s great to be able to show off quality attractions such as the Market.”

Trading each day is from 9am-6pm.
