Ballymena’s very own local Christmas Food and Craft Market will return this year - but with a new venue.
This year the craft market will be staged in the new Ballymena Business Centre on Church Street, along with the present entrepreneurs located on their ground floor.
In addition to this, there will be a dedicated space for a ‘hot food village’ on Bryan Street.
The Market will be open from 11am until 8.00pm on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th November, then Saturday 29th November, opening at 10.00am until 4.00pm.
All the family is invited to come along and soak up the festive atmosphere and to browse around one of the many trade stalls which will be full of treats and delights for Christmas, ranging from breads, cakes and cupcakes to homemade Christmas crafts and presents!
The Market will be opened on Thursday 27th November at 11.00am by the Mayor, with live music every day to add to the festive atmosphere!
There will be face painters, balloon modellers and Christmas Character entertainment for children on Saturday, 29th November from 10.00am – 2.00pm.
The market is supported by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body and delivered by the North East Partnership and with support from Ballymena Borough Council.
