Locations of Weekly markets in Newtownards and Bangor and Monthly markets in Portaferry

There are two weekly markets to choose from;

Bangor market is one of the largest open-air markets in Northern Ireland.  The market populates ASDA car park every Wednesday from 7:00am to 1:00pm and features upwards of 50 stalls, offering a wide selection of the freshest fruit and vegetables, a fantastic range of fish, irresistible home-baked cakes, seasonal plants, shrubs and much, much more.

The market was 90 years old in 2014 and is a real institution attracting many visitors from across Northern Ireland, especially during the summer months.

A weekly Saturday Market is held in Conway Square, BT23 4NP, Newtownards from 8am to 3pm and each year in September, a Harvest Fair is also usually held.

The market and the Harvest Fair are operated on a franchise basis, with each subject to public tender every five years. Tenders are evaluated for value for money, the applicant's ability to demonstrate that they have read, understood and will comply with the tender specifications, past experience and an assessment of an accompanying business plan.
For further information contact the Borough Inspector's Office on 028 9182 4005

There is also a Monthly Market in Portaferry, the first Saturday of every month in and around the recently refurbished Portaferry Market House, this year from April to December.
