Cookstown will be Looking Good, Tasting Great next month with the flavours and aromas of international cuisine on offer at this year’s Cookstown Continental Market from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 September 2016.
The event will feature over 40 traders from as far afield as Morocco, India, Belgium, France, Russia, Holland, Spain and China, who will set up stalls on William Street, alongside local traders from the weekly street market on James Street.
Traders are relishing the chance to return to Cookstown, especially in 2016, the NI Year of Food and Drink, and many speciality stalls will provide shoppers with tasty treats and mouth-watering meals.
To make sure that it’s an occasion for all the family, there’ll be entertainment throughout the weekend to add to the ambiance of the weekend. Children’s activities and cooking demonstrations will take place on Saturday 11am-5pm and Sunday 1-5pm, with musical entertainment happening Friday and Saturday 5pm-7pm and Sunday 1-5pm.
The opening hours for the Continental Market are Friday and Saturday 9am-8pm, and Sunday 1pm-5pm and as in previous years, the market will be conveniently located at William Street, Cookstown. Members of the public should note that there will be a road closure in operation from 8pm on Thursday 1 September, with the commencement of road opening from 7pm on Sunday 4 September.
