Ballymena’s very own local Christmas Food and Craft Market is back for this weekend only.

Now in its second year the market is certainly bigger than last year.

The venue has changed too as Ballymena Town Centre Development (BTCD) are hosting an ‘indoor’ craft market in the new Ballymena Business Centre on Church Street, along with the present entrepreneurs located on their ground floor.

In addition. there is also a dedicated space for a hot Food village on Bryan Street.

All the family is invited to come along and soak up the festive atmosphere and to browse around the many traders, full of treats and delights for Christmas, ranging from breads, cakes and cupcakes to homemade Christmas crafts and presents.

On Saturday, November 29, there will be face painters, balloon modellers and Christmas Character entertainment for children from 10am-2pm.
