Causeway Speciality Market Clinches Title as UK’s Best Small Outdoor Market

The Causeway Speciality Market has been awarded the Best Small Outdoor Market 2024 in the UK by the National Association of British Market Authorities.

This prestigious recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the market’s organisers, stallholders and supporters since its establishment in 2006.

Located in the heart of Coleraine Town, the Causeway Speciality Market operates on the second Saturday of every month from 9am to 4pm, with additional markets throughout the year.

The market occurs in the events space at Coleraine Town Hall, providing a vibrant and bustling atmosphere for locals and tourists alike.

With the capacity to accommodate 52 traders, the market is home to a number of permanent stallholders, while a reserve list is operated for the remaining stalls each month. The market showcases various products, all of which must meet strict criteria to ensure quality and authenticity.

Stallholders must sell products grown, reared, or caught by themselves; brewed, pickled, baked, smoked, or cooked by themselves; or made or created in significant part by themselves.

The Causeway Speciality Market is renowned for its diverse range of high-quality, artisan, locally produced food, arts, and crafts. From fresh vegetables and fruits to gourmet food and homemade crafts, there’s something to satisfy every palate and interest at this award-winning market.

This accolade celebrates the Causeway Speciality Market’s contribution to the local economy and its role in preserving traditional production methods and fostering community spirit. As the largest regular outdoor market of artisan food, arts, and crafts in Northern Ireland, Causeway Speciality Market truly is a gem in the heart of Coleraine Town Centre.
